The STA-16 replaced the STA-15 in 1977 and sold through 1978, replaced the by the STA-42 in 1979. Made by Tandy Electronics in Korea.

re: STA-16

I purchased one new in 1977. It was our Christmas present to each other. We spend most of our money on speakers. We loved it and operated the receiver until 1995 when it was damaged during a move. I never did figure out what the surround or quad setting was about because I only had two speakers. The amp operated continuously for 18 years until damaged while moving.
