Eico HF-81


The EICO Model HF-81 is a complete high fidelity stereophonic control center and a pair of 14 watt amplifiers; all on one chassis.

With it you can select pre amplify, and control accurately any stereophonic source (tape, discs, or broadcasts) and feed it through the self-contained dual 14 watt amplifiers to a stereo pair of speaker systems.

When you play a monophonic source, the 14 watts available per channel adds up to a total of 28 watts for your two speaker systems.

If you desire, both amplifiers can be connected in parallel and driven by one pre-amplifier control section while the other pre-amplifier control section is free to drive an external power amplifier.

In this way your old amplifier can be put to use in a stereophonic system.

Construction is of the low silhouette type that permits you to dispense with cabinetry if desired.
