A Classic Late 70’s Japanese Shelf-Bender

From the late 1970’s classic ‘Made in Japan’ period, this fantastic receiver is in full working order. Switch-cleaned and tested by us for 4 hours, with everything working as it should and sounding smooth, powerful and effortless. Picture 6 was taken while just using a length of speaker cable as an improvised aerial.

Physical condition is really excellent. The front fascia is perfect but there are a few little dinks on the real wood sleeve (see close-up pictures).
