Title: Technics SU-V3 integrated Amplifier
Post by: Tom on May 04, 2019, 11:18:31 AM
A special thank you to Marco Chezzi for my new amplifier - This baby really does sing very sweetly and in perfect condition.

New Class A with linear feedback - Circa 1981

It would be great if I can find a matching slimline Tuner (Silver face) for this amp.

Anyone...Just putting it out there. :notworthy:

There is one on OLX (https://www.olx.co.za/item/technics-stero-integrated-amplifier-stereo-tuner-and-tape-deck-iid-1058097479) - ST-Z11. Dunno if that is what you are looking for.

Hi MyGoggie, I had a look at that and it would have been perfect but it comes as a set (Or so it seems)
Thank you so much for the headsup.
Kindest regards

Good Evening Alf

Oh Wow. Thank you for the reply sir.
May I please inquire about the model number and the asking price please, and your location?
Currently using my cell phone tuned to MixFM via earphone jack (Also serving as the antenna in this case) into RCAs for background music during the day It works but it is lacking in quality and drains my battery. (And when I am too lazy to change CDs)  :groovy:
Kindest regards and thank you again.

Wow you guys. I must say it has been a humbling experience losing everything I have worked so hard for during my 30 odd years as an adult, and each and every piece of new gear I manage to acquire now is seen in a completely different light and is appreciated like never before.

Some very kind and special people here...  :)

Things I miss the most - in no specific order

My Valve Audio Exclame - Never even had a chance to run it in
My Sansui TT - In a very loving home right now
My B&W 805s Anniversary editions (I think they were sold here again recently)
My large Vinyl collection - scattered across SA..Being loved I am sure
My sparkling pool
My dogs.

Alf, PM coming through shortly sir.  :groovy:
Kindest regards
Tom

Hey Tom, very welcome, only saw the post now, guess I should log in more often... Good to see the old girl with power in her veins again, hope she muscles through for you!!  :clap: :clap:

Did you ever manage to get rid of those little marks on the faceplate Sir??

Cheers - Marco

Yep, was originally employed by National Panasonic in 86, we could not trade as simply ĎPanasonicí then thanks to the sanctions etc etc.. Anyway, Technics was Panasonicís Hi-Fi brand, with Ramsa being pro audio (big amps, mixing desks etc etc..) many beautiful things came out of that Technics stable, funny thing is that just before I left around 12 years back if not more, the marketing guruís in Japan decided to dump the Technics brand in favor of Panasonic, which in my opinion while they wonít admit it, is a move they regret to this day...

With that said, looks like they are reintroducing the brand internationally again, got to love marketing departments... Anyway, itís all distant memories now, and my memory fades more and more each day... :thinking:

Marco, This machine sings like you won't believe sir _ Thank you! you are a Rockstar

All settled in your new place? Dedicated music room sorted?  :flame:

I had an influx of radios to repair so I have not spend as much time on the cosmetics yet as I wanted too, But will get to it soon and post some pictures sir. Next in line for a polish is the Amp and the TT.  :notworthy:
