Great little unit for 12w/channel warm sound and FM tuner pulls in quite well. The green display looks great. Mine has recently developed a small buzz so will need to be looked at. for a 74-78 vintage I recommend getting one for a small room or shop.



re: VR-5505

Have just recently gotten custody of my father’s vr-5505. Grew up listening to this darling w/ a set of studio monitors from the era. Man!! I love this stereo rig!! Enjoy the hell out of it, it’s a treasure. Get ahold of good quality speakers. It will support two sets. I am planning to pick up another set for mine. Going to see if I can blow the front wall off my house!!!
