ALLIED RADIO 31-5016A Stereo Receiver Case Description
Note that one difference between the receivers sold by pioneer and this they built for ALLIED RADIO SHACK is provision of more common rca jacks tape deck input output, vs European din connector provided on similar model. I test a lot of receivers, using only simple set rabbit ears antenna, and can tell you that this units tuner performs much better than most digital tuners made in the last 30 years. It will adequately serve the input power requirements of other vintage speakers you may intend to connect. Its RMS power output rating in the catalog description is 55 watts continuous at 4 ohms.
One nice feature of the ALLIED 395 is that it included as standard solid, attractive walnut veneered wood case, an extra cost option for buyers pioneer brand. All input circuits are operating well, including the important phono preamp stage for turntable with magnetic cartridge. Just use a crimping tool to connect your 18 gauge speaker wire ends and insert. This vintage receiver bears the ALLIED 395 brand and model number, but it was built for RADIO SHACK in about 1971 by pioneer electronic corporation, sharing features, construction, styling of SC-1000 series SC-1500t.
Please looks at the top cover of case in first main photo to see only scratches on walnut veneer. I did not opt to sand it down and do a total refinishing, so the application of old English scratch cover polish actually made some scratches more visible. The side surfaces of walnut case are immaculate. It sold over 45 years ago for this receiver is performing wonderfully and looks great.
The power output is backed by a solid supply and discrete components, allowing for musical signal dynamic headroom. I think you'll agree that the case is very attractive and adds a touch of vintage elegance. See last photo from catalog page. Of course, you can crimp on to larger speaker wire your own connector lugs that will make a good fit into the rear panel connectors.
The design provides for main, remote, and main remote speaker listening, plus a headphones only selection. As you can see, the tuning meter and stereo mode lights are working. The beefy power resource is indicated by maximum consumption rating of 270 watts. One set of the valuable pioneer type speaker connector plugs is provided, and I have adapted it with easy-to-use plug-in insulated connectors, color coded oriented to provide easy connection correct polarity prevention short circuit if connectors are apart power on.
Prompt, careful, insured packaging and shipment will be provided, employing most economical FedEx ground service, the cost calculated by for your delivery address.
