Nikko NR-1219


An advanced receiver design in an easy-to-use format makes the NR-1219 a deluxe receiver in every sense of the word.

Nothing has been spared to enhance sound quality and performance.

The workmanship shows in the choice of advanced low-noise componentry, low distortion, clean, clear FM reception, automatic FM fine tuning, and massive 100 watts of continuous music power per channel, minimum RMS, both channels driven into 8 ohms from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with no more than 0.03% THD, from the direct-coupled power amplifier.

Nikko's refined technology is evident in such developments as the T-Lock tuning system, which fine tunes in the cleanest FM signal with a built-in human body sensor and prevents drift in reception.

An elaborate speaker protection system guards against instability.

The DC power amplifier uses complete push-pull, fully complementary OCL circuitry, leading to extreme low distortion. Overall, very satisfying performance for the committed music lover.

The amplifier Nikko NR-1219 is really musical. The treble is very delicate and airy. It can be a bit vulnerable to low ohm speakers, and if so, the electronic protection will hit in. I had this unit during my student days in the eighties, and by nostalgia I purchased one again two years ago. Just got hold of yet another for the above reasons. And then, it is really beautiful, visually a piece of art, a sight for sour eyes. I have replaced the side panels with genuine valnut, it deserved that.
