Description

This is one of the first hybrid models from Bang and Olufsen.  It came as a surprise to discover that this
one actually has got four transistors inside.   Another interesting fact is that B&O didn’t make the mechanics, rather they bought a ready-to-use BSR ‘Monardeck’ from the UK and built only the electronics and the cabinet.
