JVC 5020u Receiver

Fantastic stereo receiver from the Victor Company of Japan – JVC.

A very sophisticated & capable amplifier. Lovely sound. It’s currently entertaining our office space & it’s really nice.
Beautifully encased in Walnut – a very attractive appliance.

Made in Japan – 1972

SKU: 000701


JVC make great amps & this is one of the better ones. Extreme build quality. A real piece of quality.

Has the JVC ‘SEAS’ graphic equaliser – allows tuning to room environment – these work great.
This amp has been stored very well and is in great condition. I just noticed the small chip in veneer when doing the photos – it will go to 54 FiveSix furniture to have that repaired.

Our super experienced service agent has carried out extensive testing on this unit. Several transistors have been replaced as they were due that. Basically the amp channels have been re-built where required. The result is a very nice sounding amp that just happens to be quite beautiful.
The extensive maintenance carried out on this appliance has added to the sale cost unfortunately.
