    Default Blast From The Past - Trio - 7100

    Hi,

    Well just brought back my old TRIO KA 7100 was good price now off for a full service and then to go in the collection looking in the year book this 200 in 1978 well worth restoring to former glory was very cheap to buy back forgot how heavy it is 11.5KG stuff of this era is superbly well built this one has and is a stunning thing to look at was in my ownership a good 4/5 years ago i came buy it again because i have just bought a Pioneer A300X and the guy said i still have this i bought from you - LOL i asked to buy it back...

    https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_li.../ka-7100.shtml

    Will update this thread with the restoration ASAP so as i can get it looked at..

    Thank you
    Daniel

    It's a hefty bit of kit if I recall. Dual mono layout with some beefy transformers.
