Technics SA-5400X receiver. Classic Vintage. Fully revitalized.
Technics is a Japanese brand name owned by Panasonic Corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers of consumer electronics in the world.
The brand was introduced in 1965 by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. A compact set of speakers (Technics 1) was manufactured at that time, which reproduced a bass comparable to standard floor systems. In the second half of the 1960s, a series of X0A amplifiers appeared within the brand, and in 1970 the SP-10 was created, which is the world’s first direct-drive turntable that has been broadcasting radio stations. On the other hand, this turntable, one of the SL-1200 series, which was produced for almost 40 years, has won customers’ hearts. In the ’80s, Technics still featured great quality amplifiers and speaker systems, as well as the first CD players.
The SA 5400X is a quadraphonic receiver from the first half of the 70s offering natural, soft and warm sound. In addition to the beautiful design characteristic of its era, this model is distinguished by its structure equipped with a double power amplifier. Thanks to this, neither of the two sets of speakers that can be plugged in for a quadraphonic effect will not run out of power. There is also an interesting solution of two systems of volume control – to the front and back, i.e. separately for each pair of speakers.
The enclosure has been completely revitalized, made of American walnut wood, the wood finish is Chinese oil produced from natural oils. Potentiometers in perfect condition. The front panel is made of brushed aluminum.
