The 1970s were a real turning point for modern Hi-fi equipment with the
wide spread use of solid state electronics. Solid state electronics
dramatically changed the sound of audio equipment, marked by
more power and reliability. This catalog shows the range of AIWA Hi-fi
components manufactured at the time.
The music centers, in particular the AIWA AF-5080 and AIWA AF-3060 are

AIWA AF-5080 Music Center
The AIWA AF-5080 was the top of the line all-in-one music center
available from AIWA in 1976.
This beautiful machine boasted an integrated stereo amplifier rated
as a reasonably powerful 24 watt (@ 8Ω) per channel output.
Typical of this era, the Music Center included a record turntable player,
compact cassette deck with Dolby noise reduction, and stereo radio tuner.
AIWA AF-3060 Music Center
The AIWA AF-3060 is the little brother to the full-sized AIWA AF-5080 at the time.
This entry level music center boasted the same 24 watt (@ 8Ω) per channel
integrated amplifier in a more compact unit.
The profile of the AIWA AF-3060 unit makes it suitable for pairing with a set
of quality bookshelf speakers into a built-in shelving system that was coming in the 1970s.
This unit boasts an integrated compact cassette with Dolby noise reduction and a quality stereo radio tuner.
AIWA AX-7500 Amplifier Receiver
This was one of AIWA's most powerful amplifiers in 1976,
producing an inspiring 110W musical power, rated at a more meaningfully
quoted 30 watts (@ 8Ω) per channel. Although the MW radio receiver
may not be that useful these days, it is the external inputs for an
external turntable, tape input and auxiliary source that will be of most
use to the modern collector. This amplifier unit will look
impressively placed in a Danish-style teak shelving system.
