Nakamichi 730 Stereo Receiver
The Nakamichi 730 Stereo Receiver is a modern classic. The 730's low-slung design, zero mechanical buttons, and slick matte black faceplate hide the absolute beast of a receiver that lies inside. For a unit that retailed for over $1400 back in 1978, the 730 was as much a statement about Nakamichi's engineering strength as its design strength.
Sporting 105 watts per channel behind a massive toroidal transformer, this simplistic receiver is filled with interesting features. In the late 70s, there was still a focus on vinyl and FM radio, so the 730 includes a fantastic, crystal-clear phono stage and a finely tuned FM receiver. All of the touch sensitive buttons on this unit function well. All lights illuminate, and the power delivery is spot on.
