 Technics  SU-V7  stereo integrated amplifier                   
Early 80s model with vertical selector knobs, white lettering, moving coil & moving magnet phono stages
Rated at 80W RMS    New class A amplifier circuit

New Class A : refers to the amplifier type - Class A amplifiers have their transistors always turned on during each half cycle of the music waveform. It means they are power hungry and require a big heavy power transformer and large smoothing capacitors. The upside is no crossover distortion and a high quality sound

Class AB amplifiers are the standard - they switch off one half of the transistors when not needed and then turn them on again as the music waveform requires. This is efficient, so that you get a lot of power for low cost, but the downside is more distortion as the transistors turn on / off and on again

New Class A is the Technics amplifier circuit design where transistors are left on a small amount always - still cheap to make but with much less crossover distortion and a lot of power for less weight and expense

This is why you see
New Class A amps still going strong after 25 or 30 years - owners get a good quality sound and ample power - and so you don't have to turn the volume up too much to attain average listening levels. They punch above their weight and last and last.

The MC moving coil phono circuit has been restored, fully tested using vintage FETs which are to be sourced from overseas. It will function perfectly on cd player input or the matching ST-S6 tuner also on offer
