We found this is just about the same design that the later 1972-75 NAD 160(A) used, compare the insides to the NAD 160 on our 'Solds Gallery' page Here. This has a better Tone stage so has a fresher sound than the NAD 160 which is one we've liked & had a few times.
USA Sherwood brand outsourcing design to Japan. Nice Retro looks that are more pleasing than the NAD 160 & this is a weightier amp as the chassis is heavier steel.
Recapped & Upgraded on all but the Tuner. Power Supply rebuilt & overheating issue as the NAD 160 has been solved.
Great Sounding amp with Full Open Bass, Clean Midrange & Crisp Treble. Decent Phono stage too. Better connectors on the back with all Phono inputs not DIN as NAD use. 3 core mains cable as originally fitted.
All works great. FM Tuner pulls in FM Stereo with ease, if the "Stereo" word doesn't light. All the other indicator word bulbs light, Phono, FM, AM, Aux1 & Aux 2.
The Volume control is the upper right one marked 'Loudness' just to be Quirky. Also the real Loudness button needs pressing IN to defeat, seems that's a USA quirk as the Realistic-Hitachi receivers have that too.
Condition isn't far off as it was made, high grade on all. But a 70s person left a cigarette on the front of the wood case & it left a singe mark, it was tidied but the veneer is only so thick, so look at the Photo. Beyond that it's in Minty grade which is not typical on any amplifier.
Speaker connectors are bigger Screw type ones, to use with the skinny fork type connectors. We can fit a set of the Red-Black 4mm sockets for an extra £50 if the buyer would prefer.
Sizes are 445mm wide x 144mm high x 328mm deep if 352mm Max Depth inc fittings.
THE AMP ITSELF WEIGHS ABOUT 10.1KG
