Near mint Lafayette LR-775- 75 watt/ch @ 8 OHMS Stereo Receiver. Build year 1972 according to Stereo Review Magazine. Extremely clean unit. All controls were treated and the unit was cleaned inside and out. New lights were installed on the dial panel. Perfect case and near perfect face. Some slight fading of the lettering by the volume/balance knob. Comes with the original Manual, schematic and parts locator sheet.
Let's get to what you want to know. Yes it sounds fantastic. Deep bass and very good imaging. Very powerful tuner. I have my buddy's come over and guess what I have playing, hooked up to some vintage Jensen's and ADS speakers and they can't believe their eyes when they see what is producing the very high quality, super smooth sound. Don't let the Lafayette name fool you. They made hundreds of different model of tube and SS equipment. Most people think they re-badged their equipment but most of it was made by Planet Research. They did use some parts from early company's that became Kenwood, Pioneer, and Sansui. I believe some of their designs were also based on some of these brands. This sounds as good and better than some of these brands I have had through here including some Luxman gear.
