Technics SE A5 Stereo Power Amplifier

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 replaced the bulbs 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.
