Four-speed record-playing deck and radio receiver
With white lacquered cabinet, light grey knobs and elm wood side panels. The cover is made of acrylic glass.  

Hans Gugelot

The deck is a PC3 with a Schumann-Merula SK451 turn-over mono crystal system. It has four speeds: 16, 33, 45 and 78 rpm. The radio part houses a superheterodyne receiver with three wave lengths: medium wave, long wave and FM.
The predecessor of this combination, the SK4 (which does not have long wave), was released in 1956. This was the first post-war mass-produced device where design and functionality were given priority.
The design is by Hans Gugelot in close cooperation with Dieter Rams. In the design functional aesthetics and user-friendliness are combined. The Museum of Modern Art in New York has an SK5 in its collection.
The German nickname for the radiogram is "Schneewittchensarg" (Snow White's Coffin).
