Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

(very) early solid state

I suspect that the chassis and front panel are the best parts; the knobs are OK as well. In fairness, the power transformer's probably pretty nice.


In all seriousness, (obviously) I've never heard one, but over the years hk made some very nice sounding vacuum tube and solid state hardware, so even though being a very early ss model is a strike against it, being an hk is one in the "plus" column.

Changing every capacitor probably couldn't hurt, though...

Are the transistors all silicon, or does it have germaniums in it too?

Manual's online courtesy of hk (harman int'l, that is)-- link below.

all the best,
