 Technics  SU-V303  stereo integrated amplifier                   
1983 model with vertical selector knobs
Rated at 40W RMS    New class A amplifier circuit

Known issues :
Missing letters for power on switch and numbers 6 - 8, some letters of volume - both controls are self explanatory

New Class A : refers to the amplifier type - Class A amplifiers have their transistors always turned on during each half cycle of the music waveform. It means they are power hungry and require a big heavy power transformer and large smoothing capacitors. The upside is no crossover distortion and a high quality sound

Class AB amplifiers are the standard - they switch off one half of the transistors when not needed and then turn them on again as the music waveform requires. This is efficient, so that you get a lot of power for low cost, but the downside is more distortion as the transistors turn on / off and on again

New Class A is the Technics amplifier circuit design where transistors are left on a small amount always - still cheap to make but with much less crossover distortion and a lot of power for less weight and expense

This is why you see
New Class A amps still going strong after 25 or 30 years - owners get a good quality sound and ample power - and so you don't have to turn the volume up too much to attain average listening levels. They punch above their weight and last and last.

The MC moving coil phono circuit is still being repaired, it uses obsolete FETs which are to be sourced from overseas. The unit is fully tested and the status of this repair will be made known to anyone requesting this amplifier by procurement form or when we list on trademe. It will function perfectly on cd player input or the matching ST-S6 tuner also on offer
