Nakamichi "licensed" the Stasis technology (Class A circuit designed by Pass) from Threshold to use in the PA series of amps. I don't think Pass "designed" the actual Nakamichi amplifiers, just the circuit that Nakamichi licensed from his company, Threshold

Yesterday i got the old Technics SU-7700k from my father which was sitting in our basement for the last 20-30(?) years. It weights a ton and the headphone output sounds great. There's really something about those old receivers, i enjoy this one over the Asgard 2. The Technics is a bit noisy and has some problems with the sound shutting out from time to time. Makes me curious of some of the other old receivers mentioned here.

That's a beaut. Congrats!

Start with a Deoxit treatment on the pots and switches. May help with the noise issue.

You are correct:

"Nakamichi licensed "Stasis" technology from powerhouse amplifier manufacturer Threshold (a class A amplifier circuit by Nelson Pass, then a designer at Threshold, now at Pass Labs). This circuit was used in a line of expensive Nakamichi PA series of power-amplifiers, such as the PA-5 and PA-7, as well as their SR and TA series of receivers."

Apparently they did not perform the full Stasis implementation due to cost.

^^^ Woowza! They certainly look posh. Even though I don't use speakers at the mo I'd be tempted to buy them anyway for ornamental use. tongue_smile.gif

 

Stunning. And very unique looking too.

Thanks Lugz!

 

Plus if I really wanted to I could run my HE 500s off the speaker tabs with an expensive custom cable job.  Right now I am looking for synergy with my cornwalls.  My brother (who I own my house with) is gonna kill me when he finds out I am going to pick up another amp.  That will be two in the last week (I picked up MeeWoo's luxman last saturday).

 

HAHA!

A sad tale of woe with a happy ending

I had been really enjoying the system I had in my basement, and had been spending a lot of time down there. Very enjoyable space:



Then in April we had some bad flooding in Chicago, and this happened:



I saved a lot, but lost a pair of HPM-100's, a pair of HPM-1100's, the couch, end table, exercise bike, washer, dryer, and fridge. Fortunately, I have insurance.

My wife decided to replace the family room couch and move the one that was there to the basement. The one she ordered ended up taking 14 weeks to arrive! But finally, today, I have the space back! (Plus some new B&W DM-16's).






Just in time for football season!!!

I'm going to put the couch up on 6" cinder blocks too...so that a small amount of water wouldn't be an issue (which given all my flood prevention equipment really shouldn't ever happen, thought as April showed me, it can).

Great comeback; I hope you're enjoying how it sounds after the long wait! Just make sure to put everything away if it ever rains that hard again.

post #8580 of 13591
Thanks! Yeah it we are ever forecast to get 8" of rain in 12 hours again, I will bring it all upstairs other than the stuff that is on blocks. Never had more than 5" of water. I have the most massive sump pump on earth, and a secondary pump! But on rare occasions, there is just no keeping up with the water.
