For sale is a nice set Project One Receiver. Project One was the house brand of a 1970's / 1980's audio store chain which means it was made by a well known company but the retailer put their name on it. Concept and Project One were house brands of Playback and Pacific stereo, I can't rememebr which is which. This was likely made by Technics as it has many similarities to some vintage Technics receivers with respect to general layout, cabinet design, internal components, and so on.

Not sure of the power of this as it is a pretty rare unit and documentation is hard to find. I am guessing it's about 30 watts per channel. I date this as about 1977 or 1978. This unit still uses individual / Discrete output tansistors. This unit has 4 of them, 2 per channel. Around 1980 many manufactures started using darlington power output units (Lower cost, not as good) which are not the same as discrete output transistors. I am collector of vintage 1970's and 1980's audio equipment and need to make some room. My wife is getting on my case about too much stuff.

Cosmetic:

VERY NICE! No damage evident. No gouges or scratches to the wood case. No damage to the faceplate. All the lettering is t, the knobs have no damage, the glass on the face has no damage or scratches. Definitly a 9.5 out of 10. Only new would be 10 of 10.

Operation:

It sounds great. AM/FM/PHONO/AUX /TAPE inputs all work. All the lights work as well. ALL the controls have been cleaned and work like they should. Tuning is smooth and it picks up stations across th dial. A great example of a vintage late 70's receiver.

Shipping:

Shipping will be by UPS or Fed-EX and will include a tracking number and insurance. Please use the ebay shipping calculator as an estimate. Once the auction is over and I have an exact shipping address, I will send the winner an invoice. A $12 packing fee will be added for a box and peanuts as I do not think I have anything big enough for this lying around so I'd have to buy a box. If I have something of the right size and will not have to buy anything I will waive the $12.

Local pickup is good too.
