    Default Some photos of vintage Japanese components

    I came across this particular Japanese website while surfing audioasylum.com. Have no idea what the Japanese writing is saying but the photos are enjoyable....

    http://www.niji.or.jp/home/k-nisi/index.html

    Some of the brands may be unfamiliar to those outside of Japan. As far as I know....

    Lo-D = Hitachi
    Exclusive = Pioneer's high-end line in Japan
    A&D = Akai
    Optonica = Sharp
    Victor = JVC
    Diatone = Mitsubishi
    Trio = Kenwood
    Esprit = Sony, forerunner of the ES line

    Great stuff, I've always loved the look of Japanese separates. It's too bad there almost none available in the US anymore.
    Take a look at the size of the transformer in those Sansui amps.

    Unbelievable! it was designed in 1986!
    The Nak PA70 used Nelson Pass from Threshold's STASIS technology.
    When I listened to it back in about 1988 I couldn't find a sonic difference between the Nak and the GFA555 despite the sales guy at the shops protestations. The Adcom was half the price!
