This is one receiver you’re not likely to see very often. It’s one of the early offerings from JVC the JVC JR-S600 Mk II. It was manufactured around 1977-1981 and featured 120 watts per channel and a five band sliding equalizer and retailed for $600.00. Volume was also controlled with sliders. It also had a Marantz style horizontal wheel tuning knob (thumbwheel) and a long line of 24 push buttons along the bottom of the unit. It was JVC’s top of the line receiver for that series.
The design is definitely different with a little bit of a McIntosh influence. The meter lights tend to overshadow the tuning dial. Still, it would look pretty cool in any vintage stereo set up.
The JVC JR-S600’s sell for around $300.00-500.00 in good working condition.
