The 1973 Realistic STA-18B Stereo Receiver

vintage realistic receivers

This 1973 vintage Realistic STA-18B AM/FM stereo receiver has a classic brushed aluminum face, bright blue lighted dial, 35 watts-per-channel and a real walnut veneer cabinet. It has a nice, smooth tuning dial with a cool illuminated tuning needle with "Magic Tune" that turns yellow when optimum signal is dialed in, and red when the signal weakens. Of course, the classic blue lighted analog tuning meter gives you real-time tuning strength to dial the absolute best signal. It is modestly-sized at 16 inches x 10 5/8 inches x 5 inches, and has a smart and clean early-1970's vintage look. It really is a solid little unit and delivers a quality sound. This unit had one prior owner and was still in excellent cosmetic shape and perfect working condition. A fun bit of trivia for you...in 1973, this receiver was one of the prizes contestants had an opportunity to win on the game shows Let's Make A Deal, Truth or Consequences, and The Price is Right!

The Realistic STA-52 Stereo Receiver

Vintage Realistic STA-52 stereo receiver

This Realistic STA-52 vintage receiver amplifier is a Korean-made unit from around 1978 with an unusual bright yellow lighted dial and 12 watts per channel (it sounds much louder and clearer than you would expect for 12 watts). As a matter of fact, this Radio Shack brand receiver really holds its own against the better Japanese brands of the '70s in both style and quality. It has a nice, smooth tuning dial with lighted analog tuning meter, and a cool tuning needle with upper and lower red dots that light up when you choose either FM or AM band. The STA-52 is equipped with Quadravox technology, which simulates 4-channel quadraphonic sound when you connect four speakers. This is a solid unit for smaller spaces, and has a funky spaceship control center look. Cabinet, minus knobs, measures 17 3/8 inches x 11 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches.

The Realistic STA-80 Stereo Receiver

Realistic STA-80 Stereo Receiver

This Realistic STA-80 vintage receiver amplifier still looks as good as it did back in 1977. It has a classic brushed aluminum face, blue lighted dial, and a real walnut veneer cabinet. I have read that it has about 22 watts per channel. Design standouts of note include separate left and right volume sliders and an orange lighted floating tuning needle. Two individual analog needle meters show signal strength and center tuning for unmistakable fine-tuning. Unfortunately, the fuse lamp that lights the signal strength meter has burned out, and you should see two blue lights to the right of the dial instead of the one pictured above. Cabinet, minus knobs, measures 17 7/8 inches x 12 7/8 inches x 5 3/8 inches.

The Realistic STA-820 Stereo Receiver

vintage realistic receiver sta-820

Vintage Realistic Receiver Model STA-820

This vintage Realistic receiver model STA-820 is a classic late '70s behemoth. It's ultra heavy and has instantly recognizable retro style with brushed aluminum face and walnut wood veneer cover. What makes the Realistic STA-820 a bit different than a lot of other vintage stereo receivers is the fact that it is equipped with two separate phono / turntable inputs. Why, you ask? Why not? You can use it to comparison test two turntables at once. You can use it for primitive DJ mixing. You can use it to host your own in-home radio show! The Realistic STA-820 measures 18 3/8 inches x 13 3/8 inches x 6 1/4 inches.
