They’re iconic examples of product design excellence in detail and craftsmanship. We’re all familiar with them, and you see PHOTOS of them everywhere. So, where can you buy the damn things, and why did they stop making them 40 years ago if they’re so great? I would like to get my hands on one of Dieter Rams’s radios, but they’re exceedingly rare. Does anyone know of good source to buy them?

This is a not the one:
Google “Braun radios” and see what appears.
