Technics SE A5 Stereo Power Amplifier 1979 With the stereo power amplifiers Technics SE-A1/A3/A5 Technics offered in 1979 a completely new concept in the development of DC-circuit technique for power amplifiers. The 19kg heavy " NewClassA " power amplifier provides 160 watts per channel and sounds amazing . The uncompromising clear design with front-filling power display instruments behind thick real glass fitted into a solid aluminum panel was successfully and copied by many manufacturers more or less. 16 Axial bulbs were installed in order to obtain a homogeneous illumination of the giant VU meter front. I have the lamps replaced completely . Technics has this model series from 1981 almost reissued in 12 months rhythm with cosmetically adjusted to every trend. Today, after 35 years of Technics / Panasonic is still using this design for certain audio product lines. Now Panasonic is using cheap looking plastic glass surrounded by a mostly dark colored plastic front. https://www.flickr.com/photos/48136705@N05/14241953085/in/photostream/
