Blaupunkt Micronic

The Blaupunkt Micronic was a hifi component system, made in Japan in 1981 or 1982 , that was offered with a pair of speakers and a carry-case.



It is ridiculous to imagine someone carrying it outside like that, considering its size and weight:

Amp (Micronic A-60) = 3.4kg
Tuner = 2.6kg
Tape deck = 3.7kg
Speakers: maybe 2kg each?
Case: maybe 7-8 kg?
Total: maybe 25 kg?

It is much more powerful than a traditional ghettoblaster. According to the service manual, it has 20 watts per channel continuous @ 4Ω at 0.2% total harmonic distortion. And 30W per channel peak music power. Power bandwidth 10 Hz to 40 kHz. Frequency response 15 Hz to 30 kHz.

The tuner (Micronic T-60) is cool because the tuner needle has little red arrows that show you which way to turn the knob for best reception.

The tape deck (Micronic C-60) is an open-deck system like Pioneer and Marantz used. To insert a tape, you insert it top-first, like I do in the video below. The tape snaps in and is held in place by two black tabs on the bottom. To remove the tape, you press down one of those black tabs.

The speakers in this video are not Blaupunkt.
