The Hervic 150 bears much resemblance to the SAE Mark VI tuner. One of the most expensive receivers on the market when it debuted in 1974 at $849 ($45 more with the walnut cabinet). Essentially, it is an SAE Mark VI with an 85W per channel power amplifier and pre-amplifier dual AUX inputs, tape in and out and phono. The SAE source continues on the inside where the PCBs and some components are marked SAE. It is incredibly well built. Most of the solid state components are socketed including the transistors and all the ICs on the display controller. One of the first receivers to feature a digital tuner, the Hervic 150 proudly features a large Nixie tube digital FM tuner display. Sliders for low, mid and treble, volume and balance flank the large metal tuning knob. The sound is truly amazing. Incredible sound stage, bass in spades, sweet mid range and clear treble. The power comes on effortlessly. I love this receiver. Amazing.
