A true Retro sound like a big 1950s Jukebox, fun factor high, fidelity soft.
Not to buy & try to upgrade, to get working to the old spec is the wise thing on these as buyers won't like you hacking holes for Phono Plugs & 4mm speaker sockets if there are none.
Power ratings may say 10w in 1956 but beyond that no definition of 10w of peak, music, RMS, or into which ohms rating.
So research these elsewhere to see the ratings we'd use today, but from the 1956-57 ones the ratings look like RMS so only later did the USA type misleading ratings begin. If noted in the book, output valves that are still favoured today are noted: EL84, EL34, KT66 & KT88.
↑Top The first book is a paperback or hardback book, the cover is a naive version of later & Quad get 3 of the 4 front pictures, the Garrard 301 is the other.
The first book attempts to be an all-in guide to Hifi covering a lot in one 180 page book.
So as this is our page, we'll scan the Books for ones we reckon are interesting or noteworthy.
Starting in 1956 many valve amps will be 3 watt tiny Mono things, these are interesting to try & we had one years ago.
We've looked through the listings & if we've missed anything out, we didn't rate it & in some years especially mid 1970s onward, whole brand ranges could be missed out.From this, there doesn't seem many more to try beyond Mc Intosh & Fisher that would need importing as not sold much-at all in the UK.Read more on what we consider Good Hifi Sound on other pages.There are 2 early integrated amps & that bad-idea tri-amping that got revived later on.Some of these will now be unfindable & £1k sort of items.
They will be very old by now & 25w valves will sound nothing like their best or what you'd like perhaps.
