Bang & Olufsen Jet 509K (1952)

Bang & Olufsen Jet 509K (1952)
B&O was founded in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen. In 1927, they moved into a factory and developed a radio, which debuted in 1929, the "Five Lamper" and its peripheral "Type D" loudspeaker. Powered from the receiver, the Five Lamper only required connection to an electrical outlet to play. This radio was also the first unit to be encased in a walnut cabinet. In January, 1945, the Germans bombed B&O's factory, since both B&O refused to collaborate and its employees were suspected Danish Resistance members. In the 1950s, B&O, assisted by Denmark's renowned architects and designers, developed components that earned praise for aesthetic appeal. They were rewarded in 1978 when NY's Museum of Modern Art arranged a 39-piece exhibition of B&O's products, an honor only bestowed on three other companies during the 20th century. Our model has five tubes, AM, LW, + two SW Bands, but no FM. Richard repaired one 1N4007 rectifier, one AC power plug, re-wired 220VAC to 120VAC, and aligned IF and RF. The cabinet was repaired.  $675.00. (1300085)
