Lafayette LA-975


Add this high quality, high power SQ decoder amplifier and 2 more speakers to your present 2 channel stereo system and you will experience the excitement of 4 channel stereo sound.

It's advanced SQ logic circuit provides greater front-back separation and increases the presence of center-front and center-back soloists.

You can play discrete 4 channel tapes (reel to reel and 8 track), and the ever increasing number of popular new 4 channel SQ records developed by Columbia.

The LA-975 must be used with amplifiers and receivers having tape monitor facilities.

In addition to the sophisticated SQ logic decoding circuitry, the LA-975 also incorporates Lafayette's exclusive Composer circuit for deriving 4 channel sound from your conventional 2 channel stereo records, tapes and FM stereo broadcasts.
