Braun - famous for coffee bean choppers.
I bought a Braun coffee chopper at Design Research, 57th street, NYC 1967 when in college. It still works.
After a lotta years, I wrote them asking for a new blade, got a letter back, one sentence.
"Your unit is obsolete". Not another word.
My brother bought me a blade that didn’t fit, but I learned from that blade: I sharpen the original blade myself, you make the leading edge flat, not tapered,
Fukkkker still works.
I jump about on hifishark for fun. My Tandberg TR2080 died. I’ve been learning all the cool stuff Tandberg made, very wood oriented. Then looking at vintage turntables, somehow a ’Brown’ showed up, got me curious, turned out to be Braun, let me to some cool stuff.
I had Braun L200/L300 speakers (Germany) in the mid/late 70's and similar/same models were soon released by ADS in the USA.
Never compared the two 200/300 models (Braun/ADS) in my home system, but in other's they sounded pretty much the same.
As far as Rams goes I did have the little battery powered clock by Braun, which lasted 30+ years.
It was replaced by a lookalike Casio maybe 10 years ago as the Braun's were going for $70+ @ the time.
Both made/make a clicking noise (60 per minute) which I sometimes wake up to in the middle of the night when the ambient noise level is low.
Kind of reassuring that I can still hear it some 40 years on.
