    Default Major AS-8000 integrated amplifier. Mega rare!

    Who remembers Major electronics from the early seventies? They were a Japanese maker of superbly built equipment. Never familiar in the UK, but certainly on a par with Pioneer, Trio and Sansui etc for build quality. Their brand just vanished after a few years, shame.

    This features one of their mid sized amps: https://insidehifi.blogspot.com/2012...r-as-8000.html

    The Europe concession was Belgian, but the gear was made in Japan.

    Like the look of the amp.
    “Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”
