Akai AM-2250 amplifier. Classic Vintage. Fully revitalised.
Akai was founded by Masukichi Akai and his son, Saburo Akai in 1929 in Tokyo. The word “Akai” in Japanese means “red”, which of course found a reference in the color of the brand’s logo. In the 1940s, the company produced music and audio equipment. The expanding range of the company included originally reel-to-reel tape recorders, cassette recorder, audio amplifiers, video cassette recorder and speakers, followed by CD, DVD and mp3 players. Some of the products were sold in the United States under the brand of Roberts, A & D in Japan and Tensai and Transonic Strato in Western Europe. At the end of the 1960s, Akai and Tandberg introduced an innovative way of recording sound that allowed recording a wider range of high frequencies. In 1984, a new branch of the company called Akai Professional was created, producing electronic musical instruments. However, in the 90s, the company reduced its range of Hi-Fi equipment. At the end of 2004, Akai Corporation was taken over by Grande Group and Akai Professional by Numark Industries due to bankruptcy.
The AM 2250 model is an amplifier, which thanks to its solid construction and good technical parameters has a pure and natural sound. Another noticeable feature is the simple, classic form of the front panel made of brushed aluminum.
The enclosure has been completely revitalised, the potentiometers are in perfect condition. The metal case has been sandblasted and painted. The new amazuque wood side boards give the set a particularly refined and elegant look.
The amplifier has been completely reviewed and serviced.
