1968 JBL James B Lansing Sound SE400 40 watt per channel studio power amplifier....solid state....
1975 Dynaco PAT-4 preamplifier
^ Nice amp´s but not receivers
Marantz...later Onkyo. The 300 watt Onk now resides in my son''s garage on a shelf gathering dust (he does use it) and the ocaisional spider web...I cringe when I see it...The Marantz was king...actually been looking for one that is priced reasonably-that's another story.
Marantz made top quality stuff.
hey Engine swap, nice luxman turntable
I had the giant HEAVY Marantz, the Marantz 6300 multi speed, adjustable, turntable and great huge Marantz 3-way speakers with super tweeters. It was like a concert in the living room. I haven’t heard music presented that way in a long time!
watts?? That’s loud!
40 watts per channel? That's less than most home stereos.....but it sounds amazing....
Now that’s a setup, once I finish part of my basement I’m going back to that sound.
40 watts per channel can through high efficiency speakers sounds good
I still have my '83-ish Marantz SR225, (nothing special, but 100% operable). Also a technics SA-106 from about the same period I'm guessing, that was left behind in a built in cupboard of a rec room of a house I purchased in '98.
The Marantz is on power amp duty for my strap workshop (media out of my computer, a mix of music, blogs & podcasts (into a pair of JBL bookshelf speakers from 1993-ish). The Technics is my man cave practice space amp, taking signal from an old mackie 12 channel mixer, out to a pair of vintage black steel ratshack minimus 10s. Old school baby LOL!
Watt is not watt.
1. It Depends on how it is measured
2. It depends on the principal (A, A/B ++)
3. It Depends on the trafo´s and the Power supply.
If specs tells 150W at 8 ohm and the amp only draws 100W from the net, then…?!?
It´s a Complete different case if spec tells 150W in 8 ohm, 300W in 4ohm and 500W in 2 ohm. Then we talk about powerful amp.
The two amp´s I use today is:
a) Sugden A21L - pure Class A 23W
b) Leben CS 600 - 32W tube amp
Those are used With Sonus Faber Liuto nominal rated 89,5 db. But the important thing is that they have a "friendly" imperdance curve (not below 4,2 ohm). I can tell that the Sugden amp i capable to play (more than) loud enough - With good Control, also in the low frequency (deep bass)
I didn’t even ask the number of watts the last amp I bought.
My 15 watt Pioneer from way back had plenty of power.
Another "short-lived" HiFi Company that manufactured some Nice amp´s & receivers in the 70s was the Belgian Company Major Acoustics.
They started in 1973 and went bankrupt in 1978. As far as I know the procucts was produced at the Alpine factory.
Here the Receiver 8020 from 1978:

I remember my older brother's HUMONGOUS Fisher system in the mid 80s.
