The Technics SA-400 was offered from 1978 to 1979 with a list price of $360.00. It put out 45 watts per channel and weighed in at 19 pounds. As you can see from the picture it has an analog tuning dial and two Vu meters, one for tuning and the other for signal strength. While Technics made some good equipment the wood cabinets they used for their receivers could have been better. Even their top-of-the-line SA-1000 had an ugly wood cabinet. Of course, if you can find an SA-1000 for a good price you should buy it because they are very hard to find regardless of the ugly wood cabinet. The SA-400’s sell from $80-$150 in good working condition.
