Tandberg TR-2040 Receiver
Built in 1975 in the Tandberg Radio Factory, located in Oslo Norway, the Tandberg TR-2040 is a receiver that is a little different from what you might find in similar units from Pioneer, Sansui or Yamaha receivers of the time. For one, this receiver is FM band only, and has a distinctively un-Japanese look to it. The differences are more than skin deep, though.
Unusually, the FM radio has six presets which can be selected through the square push buttons on the right hand side of the receiver. The presets are set by using the small 'tuning' knob under each preset button. A neat touch is that the signal meter moves to the number of your preset when it is selected.
Sound quality is excellent, and this receiver produces a respectable 40watts per channel.
