Technics SA-5600X 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 5600X is a quadraphonic receiver produced by Technics in mid 70s. It is characterized by a natural, soft and warm sound. In addition to its 70s style beautiful design, the device is distinguished by a double power amplifier. Thanks to this solution, neither of the two sets of speakers that can be plugged in for a quadraphonic effect will run out of power. One more interesting solution are two volume controls – front and back, i.e. separately for each pair of speakers.
