Nikko NR-819


Accuracy, simplicity and quality; the NR-819 locks up the three and adds Nikko electronic ingenuity for FM station fine tuning with the T-Lock tuning system that automatically tunes the station and obtains the lowest possible distortion.

Continuous output power is 45 watts per channel, minimum RMS, both channels driven into 8 ohms from 20Hz to 20kHz, with no more than 0.05% THD.

Functional controls and stable, low-noise solid-state circuitry add to the overall high performance.

Reviewed May 14th, 2016 by Mads Lambrecht

Picked up this old beast at a local flea market for peanuts. 8Seller didn´t know what is was worth).

Now. I went back home and did some cleaning up/Dusting and fitted some new display bulbs. Turns out terminal 1 was broken but it was an easy fix.

when I hooked up this beast to my current set up (Not cheap stuff i tell you) I was blown away by how well it sounded. I was disappointed with my other audiophile equipment for letting this 40 year ish amp come SO close in performance.

The sound is pitch black in the silent passages and It delivers in full in the entire spectra when pushed.

I highly recommend this product.

Be aware. it´s very wide. 50,5cm :-D



re: NR-819

It is one of my best receivers at this price, the sound is typical of the Japanese equipment of those years, you can listen for hours, my expletive is in store condition and looks really beautiful, I am awake and probably will stay with me long time
