VINTAGE RADIO SHACK REALISTIC STA-80 RECEIVER AMPLIFIER

realistic sta-80 receiverThis 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, but it sounds much louder and clearer than you would expect. 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 separate left and right volume sliders, a nice, smooth tuning dial, and an orange lighted floating tuning needle. Two analog needle meters show signal strength and center tuning. The fuse lamp that backlights the signal strength meter has burned out. Replacement bulbs can be found on the internet for about a dollar each. There is also a moderately-sized nick in the left upper edge of the wood cabinet (see last photo). The unit was lightly used and there are a few very small scuffs here and there, but nothing serious. The receiver is sparkling clean and functions perfectly. Cabinet, minus knobs, measures 17 7/8 inches x 12 7/8 inches x 5 3/8 inches. Scroll down to read about the Realistic STA-52.

This Realistic STA-52 vintage receiver amplifier has a classic brushed aluminum face, bright yellow lighted dial, and a real walnut veneer cabinet. It has 12 watts per channel, but it sounds quite a bit louder and clearer than one might expect. 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. The right top front corner of the walnut cabinet has a moderately-sized ding/dent (see 3rd photo), as well as a few minor scuffs/scratches. Faceplate and knobs are very clean. The unit works perfectly, receives AM/FM signals well, all inputs and speaker terminals are tested and working, and there is no scratchy sound in the knobs or controls. Cabinet, minus knobs, measures 17 3/8 inches x 11 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches.
