No, I don't have one because I was focusing in integrates... and still do
This model came to an end around year 2000 - the last product still bearing Technics badge was 1210 turntable, finally discontinued a few years ago.
Try to ship the SA-1000 to another continent - shipping alone would exceed what most people are prepared to pay for stereo today.
There are 100 kg + power amps on the market today, with performance to match - at a price most of us can not even start swearing about....
By the way the SL1200 will go into production again, because of demand.
To ship 40kg and in good health overseas is a crazy stunt, I can't even think too such a thing.
Around 1500$ was the Technics SA-1000.
It's not just that, the receivers were much powerful, double in fact, over 300W!!! with one trafo!
My vintage integrated has two trannies and just around 90W at a total around 15kg... can you imagine how is to hold in your hands just one transformer at 12kg(Technics sa1000)!! crazy, it is like talking about Bugatti's Veyron compared to pedestrian cars!
By the way, does anybody use the tuner feature in receivers? does it hold against new digital tuners?
