Sharp SM-511H & ST-511H

Early 1970’s amp and tuner

Discrete design (no nasty chips or IC’s) and point-to-point hand wiring mean these early 70’s rarities are sounding really very nice indeed. Just serviced by our tech-guy, with pots & switches cleaned and serviced so in crackle-free and fully working order.

A host of useful features found in Japanese audio of this era including split pre-amp out / main amp in facility, phono inputs for two separate record players (switchable for MM or Ceramic cartridges), along with tape dubbing for two tape or cassette input/outputs.

Pictures 6 & 7 were taken while just using a short length of speaker wire as an improvised aerial.

We would usually offer these separately but they look so nice together that it really would be a shame to split them up. As Sid James would have said - ‘What a lovely pair’.

The last picture is from the 1975 Hi-Fi Year Book, when the amplifier alone retailed at over £70 - a huge price-tag back in 1975.
