ONKYO Radian 33 (1982) - Multi Listening Compo

mini hifi system

The Radian System was a dramatic departure from previous pre-matched component systems. All components were beautifully matched using rectangular buttons with built-in pictograph indicators to provide a unified image when stacked that clearly shows this system belongs together. Naturally, the Radian System is also carefully matched electronically to assure excellent sonic performance from all program sources. The Radian-33 was among the first to represent the “New Audio” concept with its stylish two-tone design—a departure from conventional component systems at the time. 

The Radian 33 System componets are: PA-33 Integrated amplifier with output power of 30W/ch (8ohm, with no more than 0.08% THD from 40Hz to 20kHz). Volume is controlled by a rocker-type UP/DOWN selector and a preset volume level button instantly sets the volume to the level determined by a separate preset level control. (Dimensions: 330x101x240mm | 5.0kg) - PT-33 Quartz Synthesized Tuner with 6 FM and 6 AM presets. Tuning is done with a rocker-type UP/DOWN tuning selector while watching a digital frequency display. (Dimensions: 330x66x247mm | 2.2kg) - PC-33 Cassette Tape Deck with 3-Motor Computer Controlled System. An extremely stable tape trvel is assured with a wow&flutter of 0.045% WRMS. It is a Metal tape compatible deck (20-17.000 Hz Metal) with manual record level , Dolby noise reduction and an Automatic Music Control System for various track search modes. (Dimensions: 330x101x232mm | 4kg) - PL-33 Linear Tracking Turntable with zinc-diecast cabinet that assure high tracing precision. Direct platter drive reduces wow & flutter to only 0.027% WRMS. The electrically powered dust cover is raised and lowered automatically. (Dimensions: 330x126x338mm | 6.5kg) - Several loudspeakers were offered for this Radian System. These were the styling matched PS-33 2-way speaker system with 16cm woofer and a horn tweeter and the PS-45 with 20cm woofer and a horn tweeter. Later on some markets the better specified SC-301 was also offered as matching loudspeaker. This model features a 21.5cm Deltaolefin woofer and a dome tweeter for a frequency range of 45-30.000Hz. The PE-33 10 frequency band graphic equalizer and the CB-33A, CB-33P and CB-45A dedicated rack were offered as accesories.

ONKYO Grand Scepter GS-1 (1984) - Super High Fidelity Horn Speaker

 

Loudspeaker

Takeshi Godai (former manager of the Panasonic speaker manufacturing factory) established Onkyo in april 1946 with the intention of addressing what he felt was a lack of satisfactory Japanese-made dynamic speakers. The word “onkyo” means “sound acoustics” in Japanese, and is the origin of a bold, simple, and concise brand image - Osaka Denki Onkyo K.K.

Onkyo unveiled the Grand Scepter GS-1 in 1984, an all-horn-scheme speaker system designed by Hiroyuki Yoshii that was emblematic of the company’s ongoing pursuit of ultimate sound. The speaker was based on completely new theories of audio design and measurement and was evaluated highly in both domestic and overseas markets. An equally impressive power amplifier, the Grand Integra M510 was also introduced in 1984 as a partnering component. In 1991, a few years after its initial release, Hi-Fi professionals in France selected the GS-1 as recipient of the Joseph Leon Award. The Grand Scepter GS-1 has an all-horn configuration. The horn-loaded speaker has the characteristic of having good transient characteristics in principle, but it also has the disadvantage of having distortion in many time domains (multipath ghost distortion, reverb distortion, etc.). At Onkyo, theoretical analysis revealed that the horn-loaded horn type has very little high-order harmonic distortion in principle compared to other methods, and the ideal speaker system is realized by complete control of the horn-loaded horn speaker over a long period of time. Research and development was carried out. Multipath ghost distortion and reverb distortion are not necessarily unpleasant distortions, so they were sometimes used to create sounds, but Gran Scepter eliminates these distortions for the correct expression of music. Technical data: 2-way, 3-speaker, all-horn system | Power 300W (EIAJ) | Peak power 2000W | Frequency range 20Hz-20kHz | Impedance 8ohm | Dimensions: 630*1060*615 mm | Weight: 117kg.

ONKYO Grand Integra M-510 (1984) - Artistry in Sound

power amplifier

Introduced in 1984 the Grand Integra M510 was the biggest stereo amplifier built for home use by ONKYO. The M-510 has completely separate L/R channels all the way back to the power switch and AC cord. Each channel's power supply has two power transformers: one BIG toroidal unit with tremendous power capacity, and an "in-phase" transformer - which smooths out fluctuations in the charging currents. AC from the transformers is converted to DC by high-current rectifiers, and each channel has two massive 33,000 microfarad 100 volt filter/storage capacitors. A third, independent power supply provides DC energy for the front panel lights, protection circuitry and speaker relays. Meter sensitivity can be switched from normal to -10dB to get meaningful readings even at low power levels. The design is complemented with genuine wood side panels. No specifically matching preamplifier was built. Technical data: 300 W/ch (20Hz - 20 kHz 8 ohm) Dimensioms: 507x264x512 mm Weight 63 kg.

19 Stereo Consoles - Made in Japan


In the early days of Home Stereo it was a custom that all the components were housed in a single unit having the shape and design of a piece of furniture. This trend started where High Fidelity was born, namely in America. Japanese manufacturers were quickly adapting to this trend and created a series of Console Stereo during the 60's. Here are some fine examples from well known manufacturers featuring both Stereo and Quadraphonic (early Surround) systems.
