JVC JR-S300

 

You might consider this JVC JR-S300 Mark II receiver ugly but it definitely has a distinct look.  Very industrial looking.  The slanted tuning dial and lack of knobs also give it a bit of a minimalist look.  The JR-S300 MK II puts out 55 watts per channel and incorporates 5 band JVC's S.E.A equalizer system for precise and distortion free control over the audio output. It also features a Direct Coupled amplifier section. It was manufactured around 1976, weighs 23 pounds and measures 19.7 x 6.3 x 13.2 inches.

Just bought one of these @ the local flea-market for five dollars. It’s kind of dirty but seems to sound good enough. Mostly I wanted to know when it was built.

I believe it was built in 1977. It’s a cool looking receiver. Nice find.
