Every CRT Television saved let revive knowledge, thoughts, moments of the past life which will never return again.........

Many contemporary "televisions" (more correctly named as displays) would not have this level of staying power, many would ware out or require major services within just five years or less and of course, there is that perennial bug bear of planned obsolescence where components are deliberately designed to fail and, or manufactured with limited edition specificities..... and without considering........picture......sound........quality........

..............The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of todays funny gadgets low price has faded from memory........ . . . . . .....

Don't forget the past, the end of the world is upon us! Pretty soon it will all turn to dust!

Have big FUN ! !

The GRUNDIG  ELEGANCE 63 ST63-300  DOLBY is A 25 inches color 100HZ digital scan television from GRUNDIG with elegant curvy line profile.

The set was produced even in bigger formats and types.

Pictures are simply awesome , crisp and detailed and for a 100HZ it's difficult to obtain.
Only with accuracy in development and technology with know how was possible.
Original GRUNDIG was well known for his Care about picture quality and "colors".

After models (Beko) are not comparable................. Today LCD toys suddenly or unexpectedly NOT !

Featuring a very high count of features with shiny advanced graphical menu on screen,
It's the last 100HZ digital scan television set officially produced by GRUNDIG using the DIGI-100 (CUC1837) CHASSIS.
Grundig after 2002 is gone in bankruptcy in 2003 therefore all production after are Beko crap and completely different technology and development and quality.

This set is a symbol of the last " Dazzling Ray before the end " coming from the biggest Historical European Radio VCR , recorders and Tellyes manufacturer founded by one of the most important entrepreneur and smart person: Max Grundig died in 1989.

Grundig's New Digi 100 chassis concept for increased comfort

1st February 2001 Nuremberg.

With the new Digi 100 chassis, Grundig is setting another standard for television technology. In the 100-Hertz class of the TV Elegance family, the Digi 100 concept offers not only more comfort, user-friendliness and future-oriented equipment, but is also master over the ever growing number of channels. Thanks to alphanumeric program selection, the Electronic Program Guide (EPG), Personal TV and the zapping button, selecting the correct channel number is child's play.

In addition, Grundig has improved its already successful Easy Dialog electronic user guide and has made it even more straightforward to use. The integrated keyword index contains all the terms which the user needs to know. With a direct link between definition and execution, open questions are quickly answered. Moreover, a detailed graphical representation of the connections available makes it easy to add on peripheral devices such as video recorders, DVD players or personal digital recorders.

The qualities of the new Grundig Easy Dialog are best accessed with the ergonomically harmonized design concept developed by Alexander Neumeister for the Tele Pilot 100 C remote control. The "floating" remote control combines trend-setting design with intuitive touch functionality. Due to its unusual form, the Tele Pilot is not only easy to hold: the most important and often-used keys are in a practical place within thumb's reach, and are ideal for interaction with the Easy Dialog user guide.

The new alphanumeric channel selection is one of the functional highlights of the Grundig Tele Pilot. In the same way as a mobile phone, the television viewer can enter letters that then take them to the desired channel at lightening speed. Several people can program their personal channel order using the "Personal TV" option, so that the channel sequence can be changed according to personal taste.

A further innovation is the zapping button. The current channel is marked with a "bookmark" and, if the channel is changed, the marked channel can be immediately retrieved by pressing the Z key. The two channels viewed most recently can also be swapped at lightning speed with the touch of a key. The mode key with LED display completes the multi-faceted functionality of the Grundig Tele Pilot. Switching between the TV and external Grundig devices such as satellite receivers, video recorders or DVD players becomes child's play. The basic unit of the Grundig Digi 100 chassis can be expanded at any time thanks to an integrated interface. Thus, depending on the type of appliance, the equipment can be upgraded by a qualified dealer, for example with DVB, DVD, PDR, PIP, Dolby Digital or by increasing the teletext to 2000 pages.

Grundig AG is (WAS) a German manufacturer of consumer electronics for home entertainment which transferred to Turkish control in the period 2004-2007. Established in 1945 in Nuremberg, Germany by Max Grundig the company changed hands several times before becoming part of the Turkish Koç Holding group. In 2007, after buying control of the Grundig brand, Koc renamed its Beko Elektronik white goods and consumer electronics division Grundig Elektronik A.Ş.[1], which has decided to merge with Arçelik A.Ş. as declared on February 27, 2009

Max Grundig (7 May 1908 – 8 December 1989) was the founder of electronics company Grundig AG. He was raised by his parents in Nuremberg, where he delayed his final school exams (Abitur) and completed training as an electrician. In 1930 he and a colleague opened a store selling radios under the name Fuerth, Grundig & Wurzer (RVF), generating one million Reichsmark in sales by 1938. After World War II business expanded with a successful range of consumer electronics. In 1972 the company became a corporation and was sold to Philips in 1984.
His company was one of the first to produce frequency modulated radios, cutting out static interference for clearer reception. In 1952, it was one of the first European companies to start producing TV sets.
Grundig built his company up after World War II to become a market leader in home entertainment products and a symbol of West Germany's Wirtschaftswunder. It was only in the late 1970s that it began to lose some of its marketshare as it came under increasing pressure from lower priced Japanese products, and in 1980 the company recorded its first losses.
Grundig's answer to the Asian competition was to form EURO, a common front of European manufacturers. It did not stave off the challenge, however, and the company was forced to close eleven plants and cut its workforce from thirty-five thousand to twenty-nine thousand workers. In 1984, the Dutch Philips group bought out nearly a third share and took over the management.
Colleagues described Max Grundig, the son of a warehouse manager, as a workaholic who made decisions alone and interested by himself in the minutest detail of his business.
"Order is holy to him; it means as much as half," was an official company description of him.
Grundig's father died when he was twelve and his mother had to support her five children on a factory wage.
Young Max started his working life as a plumber's apprentice but by the age of twenty-two had set up his own radio shop with a friend in Nuremberg.
After World War II, he was permitted by the Allies to relocate his business to the Franconian city of Fuerth where he set up his own factory to produce radio parts.
He was married to Chantal Grundig.

Early history

The history of the company began in 1930 with the establishment of a store named Fuerth, Grundig & Wurzer (RVF), which sold radios. After World War II Max Grundig recognized the need for radios in Germany, and in 1947 produced a kit, while a factory and administration centre were under construction at Fürth. In 1951 the first televisions were manufactured at the new facility with the company and the surrounding area growing rapidly. At the time Grundig was the largest radio manufacturer in Europe. Divisions in Nuremberg, Frankfurt and Karlsruhe were set up.

Grundig in Belfast

A plant was opened in 1960 to manufacture tape recorders in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the first production by Grundig outside Germany. The managing director of the plant Thomas Niedermayer, was kidnapped and later killed by the Provisional IRA in December 1973.[3] The factory was closed with the loss of around 1000 jobs in 1980.

Philips takeover

In 1972, Grundig GmbH became Grundig AG. After this Philips began to gradually accumulate shares in the company over the course of many years, and assumed complete control in 1993. Philips resold Grundig to a Bavarian consortium in 1998 due to unsatisfactory performance.

Later history

At the end of June 2000 the company relocated its headquarters in Fürth and Nuremberg. Grundig lost €1.281 million the following year. In autumn 2002, Grundig's banks did not extend the company's lines of credit, leaving the company with an April 2003 deadline to announce insolvency. Grundig AG declared bankruptcy in 2003, selling its satellite equipment division to Thomson. In 2004 Britain's Alba plc and the Turkish Koc's Beko jointly took over Grundig Home InterMedia System, Grundig's consumer electronics division. In 2007 Alba sold its half of the business to Beko for US$50.3 million,[5] although it retained the licence to use the Grundig brand in the UK until 2010, and in Australasia until 2012.
