Toshiba's candidate in the monster receiver category was the Toshiba SA-7100. The later SA-7150 was is similar but had one of the early digital tuners as opposed to the analog dial on this unit. The big Toshiba receivers are probably under appreciated by the collecting community and don't bring as high a price as some of the more well known brands but they are built well and sound great. this receiver put out 110 watts per channel in to 8 ohms and 140 watts per channel in to 4 ohms.
The SA-7100 has a neat flip top cover for the tone and balance controls and switches. Overall very nice styling and performance.
The Toshiba SA-7100's can be picked for a lot less than a comparable Pioneer or Sansui. If they are in very good cosmetic and working condition they can be found for less than $400.00. One sold (8-28-2011) for $568.00 that was in excellent condition and fully functional.
