Blast from the past (3)

Just got hold of this bit of 60´s Technology, a 1961/62
Loewe Opta  
Bella - Luxus 6730 W
The Sound, which is deep and rich kicks modern Radios into the Long grass.
Fully functional, it was in a bit of a mess when I got it and needed a lot of cleaning, the box had coffee Cup stains, the dials had to be removed for cleaning, the glass had a thick layer of grime over it. At some Point the material covering the Speaker will have to be taken off and cleaned.
It´s big and heavy, 44 x 27,5 x 21 cm and weighs 6kg´s.
When it was first produced this cost DM269.....quite a lot back then and calculated (using THIS online converter) into it´s equivalent worth these days would cost DM1088.99 or 556.77 Euros!!
