Technics Mini Components
In 1979 this stuff retailed for big money. In contrast with what is called a 'minisystem' today, these are very high quality components, using the most state of the art technology of the time, like the pulse power supply in the 60 watt per channel DC coupled amplifier. The preamp accepts moving coil cartridges. The cassette deck is not as well made as the other stuff, but not bad at all. The speakers are surprisingly good. By chance, an old friend of this blog called this morning seeking a small system, and this will be perfect for him. It will be gone later today, but as I write, the little Technics preamp ius driving the GAS Son of Ampzilla, and it all sounds fantastic!
