Pilot Radio Corporation 654


Here is a deluxe all in one stereo receiver with power plus to drive any kind of speaker system.

Everything you could want all on one compact chassis - separate FM and AM tuners, a 44 watt stereophonic amplifier and a complete control center.

Separate ganged tone controls, Rumble filter, Scratch filter, tape monitor, AM phase switch, a total of 16 controls for complete stereophonic or monophonic flexibility.

The 654 also has Pilot's exclusive Stereo Plus Curtain of Sound speaker connections that allow you to create a monophonic signal from a stereo source.

This can be used either for center fill in stereo or for monophonic listening in another room. It can handle external multiplex, tape or TV sound.

Built in rotatable AM antenna, and, like all Pilot receivers, its cool running chassis is the delight of those who want to custom install without a critical heat problem.

Simply attach 2 speakers, and a turntable or changer and you've got an incomparable stereo system.
