It was not the Marantz company that bought Superscope. As a matter of fact it was|
Saul Marantz who sold his legendary brand to the Superscope Company in 1964.
Their management increasingly moved the production line to Japan. Therefore
this Superscope QA-420 strictly speaking is part of the greater Marantz family.
But if it's a Marantz, why does it have so many knobs? In the year 1974 a word
spread across the land: Quadrophony! This elegant amplifier comes with a
woodcase and distributes the signal from SQ-mastered records as well as
ordinary signals to four spatially dispersed speakers at 15 wpc .
The massive Sonab sound monsters required an appropriate power feed.|
None of my regular vintage receivers could ease their hunger.
Now a refurbished Luxman SQ-507x makes the sonabs sing!
