Anybody seen one of these?
Tech Hi-Fi's house brand (or one of them). 1978. 25 wpc, probably made by Nikko (though nobody seems to know for sure). They don't pop up too often, and I have no idea how rare they are. Probably not very, since they go for a song when they do come up for sale. I really like the way it looks, especially the color-changing tuning needle. Soundwise, it might have a bit of a mild U shape but with slightly lifted upper mids--it definitely adds some flavor to the sound.
Sadly, mine's in pretty rough shape. It badly needs a recap, and it might have a sick output transistor. It buzzes like a nest of angry bees (I'm assuming that's AC getting through the filter caps?), and every so often it has a crackling fit, mostly on the right channel (could be that transistor). If I knew how to do any of this, of course I would have done it years ago.
