This 30W vintage integrated from the 70’s is sure to bring you back to the golden age of HiFi.
Back in the 70’s Japan made some of the most revered amps on the market. They were known for the quality of the output transformers which were absolutely flawless.
This unit is so exceptional they re-issued it 40 years later and charged a small fortune for it.
There are many interesting features on this unit, including dual phono inputs for two turntables or a single table with two arms, and independent bass/treble controls for the left and right channels.
This SQ38FD is in beautiful condition. The faceplate is absolutely flawless while the wood case does have a few signs of aging.
Internally it’s perfect. We tested the unit to the full rated power and checked all the tubes for both accuracy and strength.
Also the capacitors in the power supply were inspected for leakage and tested for performance and passed with flying colors. All controls were cleaned and lubricated.
