Mitsubishi DA-R10

Mitsubishi DA-R10


This Mitsubishi DA-R10 is a unique receiver from the early 1980’s.  It’s moderately powered with 40 watts per channel and has analog signal and tuning meters as well as tuning dial. The tuning dial is interesting in that it is hemispherical.  The DA-R10 retailed for around $390.

It’s interesting that the receiver utilized analog components at a time when most other manufacturers had, or were, switching to digital displays. The receiver still is a nice looking unit and reminds me a little of a power amp probably because of the curved tuning dial and rack handles. It’s not actually rack mountable but the handles give it a more professional look.

Overall a unique and interesting receiver from one of the less popular audio manufacturers of the time. I wouldn’t say they are popular with collectors so they don’t sell for a lot. I’ve seen them sell for about $50 to $80 in good working condition.
