Marantz 4300 Quadro Receiver 1973 After the Marantz Model 4400 it is the largest of the 70s quadraphonic receiver series from Marantz. A very massive constructure was the feature of the successful and expensive series. The four channel options are comprehensive, all decoders are on board. The 4300 works and sounds after a small balance as on the first day. The receiver is heavy at 22kg with unusually large dimensions. The FM reception is perfect and the amplifier power of 170 watts pc in stereo operation is incredible. In quadro operation it still drives 64 watts per channel.
Sansui QRX 3500 4-Channel Receiver. 1973 A 4-channel receiver from Sansui’s first quadraphonic series. The receiver makes use of the dimensions and the weight of 19kg a powerful impression. The performance of 4x30 watts at the time was high. Everything works like 40 years ago. http://www.flickr.com/photos/48136705@N05/10212259363/
Thorens TD-124 Turntable with SME 3009 S2 Tonearm TD stands for "tourne-disque" which means literally "record turner" in French. The Thorens TD-124 might be one of the most famous 'audiophile' vintage turntables every made, although some might say that title should go to the Garrard 301 grease bearing turntable. Serious music lovers and audiophiles alike were very fond of this transcription turntable and combined it with tone arms from Ortofon and SME, and with cartridges from Shure and Ortofon. The Thorens TD124 has an iron cast platter weighing 4.3 kg, sometimes a bit more. It is driven by a relatively strong 10 Watt motor. Specs: AC 4pole induction motor, belt/idler wheel drive, 16, 33, 45 and 78 rpm, mechanically switched, pitch, platter weight 4.5 kg (cast iron) or 3.0 kg (zinc alloy), top platter (aluminium) with clutch, manual operation. - See more at: http://www.vintageaudioonline.com/thorens-td-124-turntable-with-sme-3009-s2-tonearm/#sthash.fDiNZPRm.dpuf

Kenwood KR 7340 Quadro Receiver 1975 A large Kenwood quadro of the Two-Four series from the early seventies. It is in very good technical and optical condition. I like the elegant wooden cheeks on the left and right side. 25 Watt x4, 60 Watt x2 The function label on the solid aluminum front panel is engraved. No writing imprints may be lost. An impressive device from the golden age of hifi 70s. All functions are checked again and runs like the first day. Unfortunately, there is from the Kenwood series in autonomous design not many more from the series today in daily use. http://www.flickr.com/photos/48136705@N05/11342561106/in/photostream/
