Technics SU 8600 Stereo Amplifier


This dark National Technics amp from 1975 was a bestseller of the higher Hifi amp class. The 19" format with rack mounts stand out from the standard models of Kenwood, Sansui, Marantz or Sony etc.


The circuitry and mechanical design is designed for durability and it works without problems like on the first day. With 73 watts per channel, it produces a powerful true seventies sound.


The plastic caps of the toggle switches of all SU 8600 and tuner ST 8600 are loosened due to material fatigue after many years. So I have replaced precautionary toggle control caps with aluminium versions. Why was National Technics at that time so economical?


A good machine listen to music it is definitely.
