Mid Century Modern Stereos and Speakers.

My latest obsession: mid mod stereo systems. I am especially in love with anything sitting atop a tulip style base.  Anyone who follows my blog has undoubtedly heard me rant about my love of all things tulip shaped.

Pure awesomeness, mid mod German ITT speakers:


Space Age Panton-esque mod stereo system:

The fabulous Quadraflex - Eames designed stereo speakers:

Perfection!  Vintage Grundig Audiorama speakers:

Oh so cool.  Hanging ceiling space age speakers:

Zenith Circle of Sound Omni-directional vintage speakers:

Space age 8-Track Browni Calypso Deluxe Audax Sonosphere Speakers:

Have you ever seen anything like this?  Wow!
Space age set of Design Acoustics D-12 speakers, 1973:

Space age pop modern "Air Suspension" 1970's speakers with matching stereo stand:

and thank you to the anonymous post about this AMAZING Brasilia speaker cabinet.  WOW!  You know how I'm obsessed with Brasilia....

I've been noticing mid century speakers lately too, and thinking how cool it would be to have a mid century sound system in my home.

Baring that, trying to hide a modern stereo inside a vintage cabinet and speaker covers...

Someone hit up my blog from your link on your side bar from this post (thank you for linking me, I appreciate it) and I thought DANG, I wonder if I should share with you my vintage 1970's BOSE speakers I got for free. They don't work at all, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to gut these beauties and give them new life. We have a huge music room in our basement filled with music memorabilia and these would be perfect end tables. Scroll down the post half way and you'll see them. :) http://retrorestyling.blogspot.com/2011/01/vintage-furniture-love.html
