1970 Blaupunkt Arizona Stereo Receiver Console

Updated 24 April 2019


This is AudioPhil™ and we are showcasing the Blaupunkt Arizona stereo receiver. The Blaupunkt Arizona represented the highest level of detail for a stereo radio receiver in 1970. This concert chest is timeless in the truest sense of the word in its flat, straight lines. With her warm wood notes, she really impresses you as a wet instrument for playing concerted music.

1970 Blaupunkt Arizona stereo console

It is with great disappointment to the vintage hi-fi enthusiast that the Blaupunkt brand was reported as going into liquidation in 2016. This prestigious audio firm didn't quite make it to its centenary celebration. The Blaupunkt brand literally translates to blue point that refers to the quality control dots used back in the day. The brand in essence means quality.

Vintage Hifi Quality

There are many great vintage hifi examples we could point to, however, we have chosen to feature the more obscure Blaupunkt Arizona stereo receiver console. With its beautiful straight lines and classic furniture dimensions, this vintage hifi console will look perfect in any mid-century house. Power is rated at 2x 8 Watt RMS power. Radio features include 4 reception ranges, station presets and FM tuning, as well as its matrix stereo decoder for extremely trouble-free stereo reception.

Furniture cabinet dimensions quoted as: 152.5cm x 66cm x 47cm
