This is the Tandberg TR-2075 from Norway. It was built from 1975-1977 and retailed for $999.00. The Tandberg’s unique styling with the large square push buttons and dark blue meter and dial lights make it easily identifiable. They are very well built receivers and have great FM tuning sections. Their phono section is a little weak though. There was also a later MK II model.
The TR-2075 put out 75 watts per channel in to 8 ohms and had some interesting features such as:
- Toroidal power transformer
- 3 speaker outputs
- 2 headphone jacks
- A Mid tone control
- 515 x 155 x 353 mm or 20.3 x 6.1 x 13.9 inches
- 2 phono and 2 tape sections
You can see in this picture the large toroidal transformer that Tandberg used.
Tandberg receivers are fairly popular with collector’s and audio enthusiasts – especially in Europe. Some models require DIN plugs which can be a little difficult to find.
