Richtige Fernseher haben Röhren!

In Brief: On this site you will find pictures and information about some of the electronic, electrical and electrotechnical technology relics that the Frank Sharp Private museum has accumulated over the years .

Premise: There are lots of vintage electrical and electronic items that have not survived well or even completely disappeared and forgotten.

Or are not being collected nowadays in proportion to their significance or prevalence in their heyday, this is bad and the main part of the death land. The heavy, ugly sarcophagus; models with few endearing qualities, devices that have some over-riding disadvantage to ownership such as heavy weight,toxicity or inflated value when dismantled, tend to be under-represented by all but the most comprehensive collections and museums. They get relegated to the bottom of the wants list, derided as 'more trouble than they are worth', or just forgotten entirely. As a result, I started to notice gaps in the current representation of the history of electronic and electrical technology to the interested member of the public.

Following this idea around a bit, convinced me that a collection of the peculiar alone could not hope to survive on its own merits, but a museum that gave equal display space to the popular and the unpopular, would bring things to the attention of the average person that he has previously passed by or been shielded from. It's a matter of culture. From this, the Obsolete Technology Tellye Web Museum concept developed and all my other things too. It's an open platform for all electrical Electronic TV technology to have its few, but NOT last, moments of fame in a working, hand-on environment. We'll never own Colossus or Faraday's first transformer, but I can show things that you can't see at the Science Museum, and let you play with things that the Smithsonian can't allow people to touch, because my remit is different.

There was a society once that was the polar opposite of our disposable, junk society. A whole nation was built on the idea of placing quality before quantity in all things. The goal was not “more and newer,” but “better and higher" .This attitude was reflected not only in the manufacturing of material goods, but also in the realms of art and architecture, as well as in the social fabric of everyday life. The goal was for each new cohort of children to stand on a higher level than the preceding cohort: they were to be healthier, stronger, more intelligent, and more vibrant in every way.

The society that prioritized human, social and material quality is a Winner. Truly, it is the high point of all Western civilization. Consequently, its defeat meant the defeat of civilization itself.

Today, the West is headed for the abyss. For the ultimate fate of our disposable society is for that society itself to be disposed of. And this will happen sooner, rather than later.

OLD, but ORIGINAL, Well made, Funny, Not remotely controlled............. and not Made in CHINA.

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 ! !

KORTING Mod: 23" EIDER 49211 YEAR 1969.

The KORTING Mod: 23" EIDER 49211 is A B/W television with 24 inches screen and 4 programs with mechanic tuning search system from KORTING and was on of first models with keyboard tuner.
Based on tubes technology.

Körting radio; Leipzig,

Although only starting from 1932 beginning with the building of radios, Körting receives a good market position owing to special quality soon. In the early 50's the enterprise (in West Germany) comes because of wrong firm politics into financial difficulties. Rescue brings an alliance with the distributing house Neckermann to which thereby the exclusive right at the label name Körting for the German market is assigned. That has the consequence that Körting no more does not emerge in the catalogs of the German broadcast specialized trade. In the foreign business Körting is however without reservation further active.
1925: Establishment as Dr. Dietz & Knight GmbH, factory for products of radio and transformers, Leipzig, (Körting radio);
1940: Körting radio works Oswald knight;
1949: Körting radio of works Oswald knight GmbH, Marquartstein
1951: Removal after grass sow;
1978: Gorenje Körting electronics.
Radio: 1932 to 1939, 1949 to 1982, of it 1953 to 1978 sales Germany by Neckermann. Körting " obviously occasionally also than; Transmare Werke" firmed. Service documents with this company name for the models Noblesse 70, new fact 70, Novita 70 and Amica 70 exstieren. Fondata: 1925 Storia: From radio catalog volume 1: Two former coworkers of the company Körting & Mathiessen AG, Leipzig, create 1925 the company Dr. Dietz & Knight GmbH, factory for products of radio and transformers, Leipzig. In the enterprise the former employer takes part. But Dr. Dietz may (technically active) and Oswald knight (buyer) for quality admitted name Körting would ride along. They supply under the brand name DR transducer (Supremo), throttles, transformers and dynamic loudspeakers (Magnavox after US license) and other construction units in outstanding quality. Already soon they place the company name Körting radio in front. Probably certain parts or apparatuses come of Körting & Mathiessen. On the season 1932/33 the enterprise radio begins to produce. A series of devices in approximately 20 variants forms the start! Probably not only the 1-Kreiser is developments of Dr. P. Lertes (before with cutter OPELs). One year later produces Körting with the models “Cyclo super” and “Hexodensuper” their first superheterodyne receivers. Körting radio belongs already starting from 1933, thus in to the second sales season, to the large manufacturers! The market share amounts to 5.2%; 1934 is it 7.35% [503]. 1934/35 the “Cyclo Selector”, “Cyclo Royal” etc. also the 2-Kreis-Reflexempfänger “new fact” follow are a successful model, which repeats in modifications to the sale comes . The products of the company are considered to Ultramar as extraordinarily good quality work - e.g. 1935.
With one " Grand Prix" excellent top device of 1938/39 forms the engine-co-ordinated 11-Röhren-8-Kreis-Super “Transmare” at the price of RM 820. Knight can do the 20% participation of the company Körting & Mathiessen buy and contribute the technical line with Körting. It comes to the break with Dr. Dietz. Knight resumes the company as Körting radio works Oswald knight. Dietz dies in the war years. Postwar history FRG: Knight sets off with some coworkers 1949 after Marquartstein in Upper Bavaria. It receives a credit of 5 millions DM from the Bavarian state bank 9 as refugee promotion and builds thereby for 1951 in grass sow at the Chiemsee a new factory. Before it had Niedernfels/Obb starting from 1949 in lock. a radio factory developed. The type politics of its new company tune non or were it the selling?
Anyhow: The 1953 of the bank assigned overhauler Dr.Gerhard Böhme finds 26' 000 unsold radios forwards. Oswald knight withdraws in the summer 1953 as a partner. Böhme reaches that those removes Neckermann dispatch kg in Frankfurt A.M. all broadcast and TV-devices from Körting. These devices carry the name Neckermann apart from the label name Körting. In the first time the trading firm tries to be established by means of its own logo as mark. Devices of this epoch are grass-sourly trade marks marked primarily only on the rear wall with that. That stops not for a long time and the name KÖRTING is emblazoned again dominant at the front side, additionally a something more smaller! Neckermann sign. The Neckermann logo disappears again. Körting may export under own name only. Knight separates 1955 completely from the company; it dies 1959 after long illness. Neckermann supplemental its assortment with products of different companies. It is common to all that except the signature mark Neckermann is not recognizable a further manufacturer designation. Such devices do not come clearly from Körting! The enterprise knows the conversion until 1964 opposite 1952 sevenfold. Despite financial problems the company Körting carries excellent developer work out. Equipped the “with the “Syntektor UKW circuit Syntektor 54W”” is on the Düsseldorfer radio exhibition 1953 a sensation, reaches it nevertheless concerning discrimination and disturbing and/or amplitude modulation suppression unusual data for the UKW receipt. Devices of Körting are natural starting from 1954 in catalogs no more to find - except with Neckermann. Therefore this catalog contains for the time thereafter only samples of different travel radios firmly. Who can help with documents to document this mark better? Thanks. Böhme creates companies in Austria and Italy and locks a cooperative contract with the fermenting the works in Yugoslavia. The group conversion reaches 1973/74 340 millions DM. Körting exported approx. 40% and approx. 30% go to domestic customers under their mark such as Cuba, Silva, Pawerphon, Rosita, Blaupunkt, Siemens and Elac. You find a detailed text over it in [6-118]. It gets around itself in the professional world that Körting in Germany builds the cheapest chassis; each possible work and material saving seem realized [638862].
1975 die Böhme after serious illness. His son Klaus Böhme takes over the management.
1977/78 break down the distributing house Neckermann; the Karstadt company as new partners does not renew the supply contracts. The Yugoslav state enterprise Gorenje transfers the 1978 to bankruptcy Körting fallen, but to 31.3.83 Gorenje Körting electronics comes into liquidation .

Körting in East Germany: In Leipzig the enterprise has an eventful history after the war. Until 1948 knight tries to lead the company, but leads its plans to set off into the west to 16. March 1948 for expropriation. The Leipziger building of radios GmbH is called starting from 1949 VEB radio work Leipzig. Since 1939 the enterprise is under the guidance that Opta radio AG in Berlin (not to confound with the company Loewe in the west). In Leipzig the enterprise is called occasional RFT star radio Leipzig and starting from 1952 VEB communications work Leipzig. One builds radios to 1950/51.

 Körting radio; Leipzig, History in GERMAN.
 Obwohl erst ab 1932 mit dem Bau von Radios beginnend, erhält Körting dank besonderer Qualität bald eine gute Marktstellung. In den frühen 50-er Jahren kommt das Unternehmen (in Westdeutschland) wegen falscher Firmenpolitik in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten. Rettung bringt eine Allianz mit dem Versandhaus Neckermann welchem dabei das Exklusivrecht am Markennamen Körting für den deutschen Markt zufällt. Das hat zur Folge, dass Körting nicht mehr in den Katalogen des deutschen Rundfunkfachhandels auftaucht. Im Auslandsgeschäft ist Körting aber uneingeschränkt weiter tätig. 1925: Gründung als Dr. Dietz & Ritter GmbH, Fabrik für Radio-Erzeugnisse und Transformatoren, Leipzig, (Körting-Radio);
1940: Körting-Radio-Werke Oswald Ritter;
1949: Körting Radio Werke Oswald Ritter GmbH, Marquartstein
1951: Umzug nach Grassau;
1978: Gorenje Körting Electronic.
Radios: 1932 bis 1939, 1949 bis 1982, davon 1953 bis 1978 Vertrieb-Deutschland durch Neckermann.

Körting hat offensichtlich zeitweise auch als "Transmare-Werke" firmiert. Es exstieren Serviceunterlagen mit dieser Firmenbezeichnung für die Modelle Noblesse 70, Novum 70, Novita 70 und Amica 70.

  1925: Gründung als Dr. Dietz & Ritter GmbH

Zwei ehemalige Mitarbeiter der Firma Körting & Mathiessen AG, Leipzig, gründen 1925 die Firma Dr. Dietz & Ritter GmbH, Fabrik für Radio-Erzeugnisse und Transformatoren, Leipzig. Am Unternehmen beteiligt sich der frühere Arbeitgeber. Dafür dürfen Dr. Dietz (technisch tätig) und Oswald Ritter (Kaufmann) den für Qualität bekannten Namen Körting mitführen. Sie liefern unter dem Markenzeichen DR Übertrager (Supremo), Drosseln, Transformatoren und dynamische Lautsprecher (Magnavox nach US-Lizenz) und andere Bauteile in hervorragender Qualität. Schon bald stellen sie dem Firmennamen Körting-Radio voran. Wahrscheinlich stammen gewisse Teile oder Apparate von Körting & Mathiessen.

Auf die Saison 1932/33 beginnt das Unternehmen Radios zu produzieren. Den Start bildet eine Serie von Geräten in etwa 20 Varianten! Wahrscheinlich nicht nur die 1-Kreiser sind Entwicklungen von Dr. P. Lertes (vorher bei Schneider-Opel). Ein Jahr später produziert Körting mit den Modellen «Cyclo-Super» und «Hexodensuper» ihre ersten Überlagerungsempfänger. Körting-Radio gehört schon ab 1933, also in der zweiten Verkaufssaison, zu den grossen Herstellern! Der Marktanteil beträgt 5,2%; 1934 sind es 7,35% .

Es folgen 1934/35 die «Cyclo-Selector», «Cyclo-Royal» etc. Auch der 2-Kreis-Reflexempfänger «Novum» ist ein erfolgreiches Modell, das wiederholt in Abwandlungen zum Verkauf kommt [638757]. Die Produkte der Firma gelten als ausserordentlich gute Qualitätsarbeit - z.B. Ultramar 1935.

Das mit einem "Grand Prix" ausgezeichnete Spitzengerät von 1938/39 bildet der motorabgestimmte 11-Röhren-8-Kreis-Super «Transmare» zum Preis von RM 820. Ritter kann die 20 % Beteiligung der Firma Körting & Mathiessen kaufen und bestimmt die technische Linie bei Körting mit. Es kommt zum Bruch mit Dr. Dietz. Ritter führt die Firma als Körting-Radio-Werke Oswald Ritter, weiter. Dietz stirbt in den Kriegsjahren.

Nachkriegsgeschichte BRD:
Ritter setzt sich mit einigen Mitarbeitern 1949 nach Marquartstein in Oberbayern ab. Er erhält von der Bayerischen Staatsbank als Flüchtlingsförderung einen Kredit von 5 Mio. DM und baut damit 1951 in Grassau am Chiemsee eine neue Fabrik. Zuvor hatte er ab 1949 in Schloss Niedernfels/Obb. eine Rundfunkgerätefabrik aufgebaut. Die Typenpolitik seiner neuen Firma stimmt nicht - oder war es der Vertrieb? Jedenfalls: Der 1953 von der Bank beauftragte Sanierer Dr.Gerhard Böhme findet 26'000 unverkaufte Rundfunkgeräte vor. Oswald Ritter tritt im Sommer 1953 als Gesellschafter zurück. Böhme erreicht, dass die Neckermann-Versand KG in Frankfurt a.M. alle Rundfunk- und TV-Geräte von Körting abnimmt. Diese Geräte tragen neben dem Markennamen Körting den Namen Neckermann. In der ersten Zeit versucht das Handelshaus mittels eines eigenen Logos sich selbst als Marke zu etablieren. Geräte dieser Epoche sind vornehmlich nur auf der Rückwand mit dem Grassauer Firmenzeichen signiert. Das hält nicht lange an und der Name KÖRTING prangt wieder dominant an der Frontseite, zusätzlich ein etwas kleineres! Neckermann-Schild. Das Neckermann-Logo verschwindet wieder. Körting darf unter eigenem Namen nur noch exportieren. Ritter scheidet 1955 ganz aus der Firma aus; er stirbt 1959 nach langer Krankheit.

Neckermann ergänzt sein Sortiment mit Erzeugnissen verschiedener Firmen. Allen gemeinsam ist, daß außer dem Namenszug Neckermann keine weitere Herstellerbezeichnung erkennbar ist. Solche Geräte stammen eindeutig NICHT von Körting!

Das Unternehmen kann den Umsatz bis 1964 gegenüber 1952 versiebenfachen. Trotz finanzieller Probleme leistet die Firma Körting ausgezeichnete Entwicklerarbeit. Der mit der «Syntektor-UKW-Schaltung» ausgestattete «Syntektor 54W» ist auf der Düsseldorfer Funkausstellung 1953 eine Sensation, erreicht er doch bezüglich Trennschärfe und Stör- bzw. Amplitudenmodulations-Unterdrückung aussergewöhnliche Daten für den UKW-Empfang.

Natürlich sind Geräte von Körting ab 1954 in Katalogen nicht mehr zu finden - ausser bei Neckermann. Deshalb enthält dieser Katalog für die Zeit danach lediglich Muster verschiedener Reiseradios fest. Wer kann mit Unterlagen weiterhelfen, diese Marke besser zu dokumentieren? Danke.

Böhme gründet Firmen in Österreich und Italien und schliesst einen Kooperationsvertrag mit den Gorenje-Werken in Jugoslawien ab. Der Gruppenumsatz erreicht 1973/74 340 Mio. DM. Körting exportiert ca. 40 % und ca. 30 % gehen an inländische Abnehmer unter deren Marke wie Kuba, Silva, Pawerphon, Rosita, Blaupunkt, Siemens und Elac. Einen ausführlichen Text darüber finden Sie in [6-118]. Es spricht sich in der Fachwelt herum, dass Körting in Deutschland die billigsten Chassis baut; jede mögliche Arbeits- und Materialeinsparung scheint realisiert. 1975 stirbt Böhme nach schwerer Krankheit. Sein Sohn Klaus Böhme übernimmt die Geschäftsleitung.

1977/78 bricht das Versandhaus Neckermann zusammen; der Karstadt-Konzern als neuer Partner erneuert die Lieferverträge nicht. Der jugoslawische Staatsbetrieb Gorenje übernimmt die 1978 in Konkurs gefallene Körting, doch am 31.3.83 gerät Gorenje Körting Electronic in Liquidation [638758].

Körting in Ostdeutschland:
In Leipzig hat der Betrieb nach dem Krieg eine wechselvolle Geschichte. Bis 1948 versucht Ritter die Firma zu leiten, doch führen seine Pläne, sich in den Westen abzusetzen, am 16. März 1948 zur Enteignung. Die Leipziger Funkgerätebau GmbH heisst ab 1949 VEB Funkwerk Leipzig. Seit 1939 ist der Betrieb unter die Führung der Opta-Radio AG in Berlin (nicht zu verwechseln mit der Firma Loewe im Westen). In Leipzig heisst der Betrieb zeitweise RFT Stern Radio Leipzig und ab 1952 VEB Fernmeldewerk Leipzig. Rundfunkgeräte baut man bis 1950/51.
