AMPLIFIERS AND RECEIVERS

 

This is an early to maybe mid 1950's Bogen model DB130 mono amplifier. This is absolutely great for playing really old records from the early 50's and beyond because it has a record equalizer switch. Before the mid 50's record manufacturers used different equalization methods from each other. That was standardized in the mid 50's. For example, 78's from Europe were different from ours. Different company's were different from each other. LP's were different again. With this amp, you can set the equalization switch for the type of record you're playing and hear it as it should be heard. It also has three phono inputs, ceramic, low magnetic, and high magnetic. I've been using it with my Collaro turntable and ceramic cartridge. A really nice old working amp.

This is an early 60's Bogen AP60 stereo amplifier. It has many features not found today, like a ceramic as well as a magnetic phono input, a blend control for blending the two channels, and choosing which speakers to play which channels. It's a great old amp. I use it with my Motorola record player and Akai tape deck mostly.

Here's a Sansui model 500 EA tube receiver amplifier. This was made in the mid 1960's. It has an am/fm/shortwave receiver. The phono input is switchable from magnetic ti ceramic, a great feature of the time. Back in those days we used to tape monoral music because not everything was stereo yet on the radio. With this receiver you can choose which channel you want to hear from your tape deck and it will play on both speakers. You don't see these features anymore. I have many of those tapes and these old amps are great for playing them.

This Fisher receiver is from the late 60's and is solid state. It features auto tuning with the push of a button. This amp is in super nice condition and works great.

This is my Kenwood model KR4010 AM and FM stereo solid state receiver. Nice receiver with a good punch of power. It features tuning and signal strength meters. It has the normal inputs of the time period, tape monitoring, and noise filter.
