Nytech CTA-252XD Series II / Mk1

Vintage British Tuner/Amp

In fantastic time-warp condition, this classic and iconic British receiver is in full and perfect working order. Smooth, powerful, crackle-free and with all illumination bulbs working. Picture 4 was taken while just using a length of speaker wire as an improvised aerial.

The following two paragraphs are taken from the excellent Nytech Audio website:-

Nytech's original award winning tuner-amplifier turned more than a few heads at the time of its launch for its unusual "calculator" style design. The CTA252 production run went through several upgrades all of which were aimed at improving the already impressive sound quality.

The "XDII" had a major power supply upgrade including a torroidal mains transformer which provided the best sound quality possible from the CTA design and reduced hum dramatically (especially for MC phono inputs). It also raised the output power to about 30W RMS/Channel.  It looks identical from the outside to the "XD" so it can be difficult to tell the difference between the "XD" and Mk1 "XDII".

This comes with its important 5-Pin DIN blanking plug.

The close-up pictures should tell you everything you need to know. The last two pictures are from the 1980 ‘Hi-Fi Choice’ magazine, where this lovely receiver was awarded ‘Recommended’ status and retailed at £300 - a huge price-tag in 1980.
