|1||Harman Kardon 430 Twin|
The Vintage Harman Kardon 430 stereo receiver is one name that comes up over and over again as rated by users as one of the best vintage stereo receivers. This model was manufactured between 1976 and 1977. The receiver features a 25-watt per channel output which sounds much louder due to the dual mono technology which ties together two large capacitors with two large transformers per channel. This model is also noted as having superb clarity and detail.
