In the 60's, I gathered Philips made good radios, both portable and table top models. During the 70's, I totally started to lost my interest in the brand Philips.

This very receiver model surprised me. Darn, this almost sounds good, or does it actually sound good? The AH686 even had loudspeaker connections for 3 pairs, and a microphone input with mixer option: now this is something.

Must admit, this was a receiver to consider. Still, I found the bass reproduction kind of thin, and was there something lacking to the high tones, too? Of all the Philips audio products I encountered, this was very close to play for the keeps.
