In case of the amp Korting A-300, its seems that the only good parts would be the case itself and perhaps the trannie.

The speakers..uhm...

spks , in fact , are pretty decent for that time ; with little work on xover , you can have nice pair of spks for your bedroom ; bass reminds me on ELAC , olde sweet sounding drivers

amp - dunno .... that model doesn't ring a bell , except that most probably is some Japanese OEM specimen

(in both cases, likely manufactured under Yugoslavian government ownership)

I can read, 1945, made in Korea.
Add last button finish, and it's made in Germany.

(as a kid, i enjoyed reading mail order catalogs for hours, bit strange maybe. still recall the Körting junk)

Wooha, breaking news : ModZee repaired chimpy amps.

Oh, I owe you some more pics, but maybe latter, gotta do something else right now....
It seems to have been made in Slovenia (Gorenje- Korting), and the amp itself is based on STK 463 chip (one channel is dead).

You should hope for the other channel to die ASAP...

+30 years after it's birth (1979), all STK463 should be tarred and feathered, then burnt at the stake.

Woof - woof. I have not done any barking for awhile around here - so just thought I would check in real quick. I have been busy with the holidays and shopping (well SWMBO was spending all of the $$$ of course) etc. I hope that everyone is doing well!!!
