My First Stereo

My First Stereo

Written by Frank Doris


 Here's a Panasonic full line catalog circa late 1960s or early 1970s. No big deal, except...


The RE-7670 system, "The Barrington," was my first stereo. My father bought it for me when I was a kid, along with "The Phono Mate" RD-7673 turntable. I still have the speakers and the catalog.


The thing is, they might have been right. 1960s McIntosh ad, author's collection, given to him by Audio Classics decades ago.


Maybe not a piece of hi-fi equipment per se, but you saw these everywhere in the 1960s and 1970s. How many high school A/V squads had that turntable?


 This circa 1960s Philips portable radio was a safe bet for beach listening!
