59. JVC R-S33 Super A AM/FM Stereo Receiver From 1980

This is a nice little receiver. It retailed for $345 back in 1980. That's about $980 in 2015 dollars. A strong 40 watts per channel. The sound is nice a clear. It features a 5 band EQ for tone control. It is quite pretty at night when lit up. Unfortunately the engineers decided to use a slider for the volume. That's a terrible idea. Still though, it is a nice receiver. I picked one up at a garage sale on July 11th 2015.  Here's a picture of mine:
