Nytech CTA 252-XD


UPON REQUEST

More info

First of Richard Hay's modified receivers made at the Nytech Chew Magna factory after Richard bought the company from the original directors. The "XD" (which stood for Extended definition) added a dealer changeable phono card to allow the use of the new high end moving coil phono cartridges. Also some minor modifications to the power amp modules and power supply resulting in a significant improvement of sound quality, making the CTA252 one of the first "super fi" components that the average person could afford to own, and one of the best sounding FM tuners of the time.

 

The XD is identified by its silver label on the case and the MM/MC1/MC2 options on the rear label and the RCA socket "Flying lead" phono inputs.
