The Radio Department depicts the development of electronic products in Denmark and throughout the world.
The first mechanical sound generator. The first tape recorder. The first arc transmitter. The first loudspeaker, the Magnavox, built by Peter L. Jensen of Hesnæs at his factory in the US, later to become famous as Jensen Speakers.
A 100-year old valve amplifier from the US is a new addition to our collection: thanks to a donation from the Classen Foundation (det Classenske Fideicommis) we have been able to add an AC 2 Magnavox amplifier anno 1922 to our collection.
There are other milestones in electronics history this year: the Video Recorder celebrates its 50th birthday, and the Compact Disc player turns 40.
The exhibition includes QR-codes to enable you to hear exciting radio soundbites.
