Grundig HiFi Box 303Ma loudspeakers. Classic Vintage. Fully revitalized.
Grundig was established in 1945. After the World War II, the Allies watchfully controlled the production of radio receivers in Germany. Max Grundig saw a niche and created a “Heinzelmann” i.e. a Grundig radio without tubes, which officially was not categorized as a radio and thus was not controlled. The product was so successful that the company was able to quickly build its own factory. In the early 50s, Grundig created its own model of a tape recorder and a TV set specially for the premiere of the first German TV channel. Already at that time, the company was the largest manufacturer of radio receivers in Europe.
In 1957, Grundig acquired a majority stake in typewriter manufacturers: Triumph and Adler, which enabled the creation of the biggest tape recorder factory in the world. The company introduced modular systems with separate components (radio, stereo amplifiers, vinyl record players, tape recorders, separate speakers, and even 3D audio devices) making it possible for customers to create their own hi-fi sets, according to their individual needs and interiors. In 1967 Grundig launched a compact cassette recorder, soon followed by a car cassette recorder. In 1969, it produced Europe’s first hi-fi amplifier with a built-in equalizer, which became a bestseller. Twenty years later, at the age of 81, the founder Dr. Max G. Grundig died, and in 1993, Philips, which had been buying Grundig’s stock since the 70s, took complete control of it.
At the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, Grundig quickly recognized the enormous potential of mp3 technology and began to develop it, thus becoming one of the market leaders. Since 2007, Grundig Intermedia GmbH has been part of Arçelik A.Ş. and a producer of a variety of electronic devices, ranging from MP3 players, through TV sets to household appliances.
The 70s are unanimously regarded as a golden age for products from the Grundig family. The designs created during this time are characterized by an exceptionally high level of quality, such as the HiFi Box 303 Ma loudspeakers. They attract the listener with natural and coherent sound. Thanks to the rich soundstage the listener can distinguish many details and feel like being at a concert. They are ideal for listening to jazz, swing or blues.
The enclosures have been completely revitalized. Pear wood adds incredible charm to the speakers. High quality finishing screws. New terminals. The wood finish is Chinese oil produced from natural oils, as well as natural, turpentine-based beeswax. The wood is very pleasant to the touch. Grilles made of high quality acoustic fabric.
