JVC 4VN-550

Description

The 4VN-550 is a high value stereo component. Packed with the latest of JVC's developments it's a 4-channel amplifier which leads the way in sound. S.F.C.S (JVC's simulated four-channel system), advanced BTL connections, a frequency response from 20 to 40,000Hz; the list goes on for a very long time.

Build up a stereo system around the 4VN-550 and you'll never regret it. You'll have an amplifier which will last for a long time without becoming dated, as the centrepiece of a 4-channel or 2-channel system.

I have had my 550 since 1973!! It has not missed a beat in 44 years and is a superb little amplifier. I originally had it as my first foray into HiFi and part of a quadraphonic system but use it today as part of an adjunct stereo setup. Despite also currently using and having previously owned several top level American systems (Citation, Phase Linear and currently Audio Research), this little JVC amp keeps on performing well and just keeps on keeping on. Would recommend it to anyone interested in vintage amplifiers as it was certainly built to last.
