CAMBRIDGE AUDIO Model 2500 Receiver- Cambridge Massachusetts / Japan . Excellent Cosmetic and Electrical Condition .. My guess is that this receiver was designed in the USA but manufactured in Japan sometime in the 70's. Cambridge Audio is still in business today, producing some fine sounding phono stages like the Azur 640P and many other components .Hopefuilly the pictures should tell most of the story, but just in case, from left to right: The selector switch has four positions: AM, FM, PHONO and AUX. Next to that is a Loudness button, Tape Monitor, and FM muting button. A nice 1/4 inch headphone jack, Speaker switch with OFF, A, B, and A+B positions . The next Knob in the Bass, then the Treble, the Balance control, and at the far right, the Volume control. The larger knob just above the volume is the Analogue Tuning Dial , which turns nice and smooth. To the far left inside of the tuning glass is an analogue FM signal strength meter which works just fine.. One nice feature is the tuning indicator, which is normally illuminated between stations , then turns red when you zero in on an FM Stereo Station . On the rear of the unit, left to right, we have the 4 amp fuse holder, the power cord, an AC UNswitched outlet , the R and L "B" channel speaker binding posts, and the "A" channel R and L binding posts, Next to that are the L and R RCA jacks, starting with TAPE OUT, TAPE IN, AUX, AND MAG PHONO .. T is a ground lug for a turntable next to the phono inputs.Finally to the far right, we have the External Antennae connections starting with GND, AM, and FM- 300 ohms . The wooden (dual layer plywood) cabinet is in excellent condition as well, although I'm quite sure that the exterior finish is a very thin layer of Melamine or vinyl. I recently tested this receiver in my home system for about two weeks and it performed flawlessly using the Phono, FM Stereo (great reception using antennae),and Aux (used a CD player). I didn't hook a tape player up to it simply beacause I didn't have one handy, but I did test the output and it worked well. I'd guess that this receiver puts out about 25 watts per channel, more than enough for all but the real power hungry speakers.
Although this unit is working fine at the moment, I can't guarantee that it will work forever. I will guarantee that it arrives at your home in good working condition, not DOA. This receiver is heavy, it weighs about 21 pounds unpacked, it's just under 17 inches wide, 11 inches deep, and 6 1/4 inches tall, so figure 23-24 pounds for shipping purposes. I'll ship this Cambridge Audio Receiver anyw in the CONUS in a 20 x 16 x 10 inch box weighing 23-24 lbs. Buyer has choice of Parcel Post, or Priority . International Shipping will be calculated according to your location, but figure 1 pounds shipped from Providence, R.I., 02905 , u.s.a to get an idea of the cost.
