Nakamichi 530
137,000yen(around the 1978 time)

The stereo receiver which attained quality improvement so that it could use in the form of the 2nd main system.

If it is considered as the auto-tuning, a pointer moves only by pushing a tuning switchpoint and all FM tuning collides with an office, a tuning indicator will light up and it will tell the optimal location.
Furthermore, four offices of choice can be preset beforehand and it always tunes automatically on the office of choice.
Moreover, the circuitry had the performance almost equivalent to 730 which is a high-end model, and the separation property which stopped the distortion and was stabilized has been acquired.

In the preamplifier part, a double NF circuitry is adopted as a phone equalizer, a failure of an input signal is prevented, and the distortion is stopped.

The power amplifier part has adopted the pure complementary circuit as a basic circuit, and serves as circuitry which suppressed the power dissipation and the exothermic.
Moreover, distortion is reduced by the double NF circuitry which applied NF also to the input capacitor.
