1973 Heathkit AR1500A AM/FM Stereo Receiver. Tested in excellent working condition and graded VG+ (Very Good Plus) for mild to moderate wear to the faceplate. The 1500A is best described as an impressive stereo wrapped ordinary packaging. This powerful unit offers a Phase Lock Loop (PLL) multiplex demodulator that delivers maximum separation and long-term stability. The 1500A offers top-notch performance with impressive power at 90 watts per channel over four channels. The 1500A provides 90 watts per channel with less than 0,25% harmonic distortion with outputs for two separate speaker systems. This unit also has two sets of headphones, preamp output, and oscilloscope outputs. A simple but classic early 1970s design and stable performance make this a great vintage hi-fi unit!
