Bang & Olufsen landmarks


Bang & Olufsen two interesting landmarks, 1964 and 1927.

1964 was a significant year in European history for at least two reasons. The British and French governments announced their commitment to build a tunnel under the English Channel and the Beomaster 900 was launched. It was the very first mains-powered, table radio set to use transistors rather than valves. 1964 was all about connecting.

In 1927, the world's first transatlantic telephone call was made from New York to London. At the same time, Bang & Olufsen moved to a newly built factory in Struer, Denmark and launched a new mains radio, the 3-lamper. 1927 was all about new beginnings.
