New. Diverse. Consent.

The instruments in this advertisement are new and diverse. They are also selective, deliberately. This is consistent with our attitude--to make components only where we feel we have something to contribute. Then, to give them the finest expression of which we are capable.

Our 330c stereo receiver is the most recent in a series that opened the world of true high fidelity to the music lover with a modest budget. Its predecessor, the 330B, earned extraordinary reviews and recommendations from the leading magazines and the most respected consumer organizations. Nevertheless, when improvement was practical, we replaced it.

The 330c has increased power, tighter phase linearity and wider bandwidth than its immediate predecessor. Yet it is offered at virtually the same price as the original 330, introduced seven years ago.

In its review of the HK1000 stereo cassette deck, High Fidelity said, "The HK1000 is the best so far ... A superb achievement."

We've gone beyond it.

With the HK2000.

Performance specifications of the HK2000 are impressive. For example, wow and flutter: 0.07% (NAB) WRMS. The HK2000 is so sensitive to low frequencies that a subsonic filter has been incorporated which can be used to remove unwanted signals from warped records. But just as in all Harman Kardon amplifiers and receivers, wide band design in the HK2000 produces sound quality that transcends its impressive specifications.

When we introduced our straight line tracking turntable, the ST-7, it was recognized at once as the definitive way of playing records. Precisely as the master was recorded. Without tracking error. Without skating.

The ST-7 was designed for the music lover who had to have the very best-and could afford it. The ST-6 now joins the ST-7.

Straight line tracking, with the demonstrable benefits it offers, is now available to a wider audience--without compromising performance.

The two turntables are virtually identical in appearance and operating capability. They use the same tonearm and straight line tracking mechanism. They are both belt driven and use the same platter and support bearing. Yet the ST-6 is available for little more than the cost of a deluxe record player of conventional design.

We'd like to tell you more about our new instruments and, equally important, about the point of view they represent. Write to us directly--without impersonal reply cards or coupons. We'll respond in kind with full information.
