The Heathkit AR-1500 was introduced about 1972 as Heath's top of the line successor to the famous AR-15. The AR-1500 made quite an impact when it was introduced. Here was a reliable, fairly high power receiver with an excellent tuner all for a reasonable price when purchased as a kit.
60 watts per channel into 8 ohms. Less than 0.25% harmonic distortion from 20-20,000HZ.
