The Heathkit AA-100 Deluxe Stereo
Amplifier stands heads and shoulders in value above any other stereo amplifier
in the kit industry. Packed full of exciting features, this high-fidelity rated
50 watt amplifier outperforms units selling for twice its price. It's a mere
$84.95 in kit form, that's just $1.70 a watt for two 25-watt channels of
distortion-free power to handle every amplifying task in your stereo system.
The five stereo inputs can be
utilized to the advantage of your individual taste and system components ...
there's a stereo magnetic phono input, a pair of tuner inputs for AM and FM, a
pair of tape inputs and two pairs of auxiliary inputs. A separate monophonic
magentic phonograph input is also available. The input layout is further
enhanced by the fact that tape playback heads can be accepted directly without
external preamplification or equalization.
In addition to three different
stereo speaker impedances, the AA-100 has a "mixed-channel" speaker output that
can be used for stereo "center fill-in" or for monophonic sound in other rooms.
The cathode follower outputs for tape recorders insure true sound reproduction
without high frequency loss, regardless of the distance between the amplifier
and the recorder.
The many controls of the Heathkit
AA-100 speak clearly of it's versatility and capability in any situation.
Included are preamplifier input level controls, power amplifier input level
controls, hum controls, "mode" selector, speaker phase reversal switch, baance
and separation controls, ganged volume controls and separate concentric bass and
treble tone controls to put you in complete command of every function with
assurance of peak performance.
While the electronics of the
AA-100 are enough to prove this stereo amplifier the best buy on the market
today, the wonder styling features of this beauty make it an even greater value.
The luggage tan vinyl-clad steel cabinet looks and feels like real leather, but
is practically indestructible because of its mar, scratch and stain-resistant
qualities. The fabulous AA-100 is the "stereo-twin" of the famous Heathkit AJ-30
Stereo AM/FM Tuner ... they look alike, and will fit in any room decor in your
The unit does not power up but it has the
Vacuum Tubes still intact. I don't know what is wrong with it and don't
have the time or desire to fix it.
