" Manufactured by Philips High Fidelity Laboratories Ltd. USA "

Philips' penultimate super high-end lineup, the HFL big mini-series is impressive, rare, and it was made in America : Greenville, Tenessee !

In 1978 , Philips was then very busy perfecting its VLP/ALP system that would quickly become CD (with Sony) and the future Magnavision / Laservision with a few other partners.

Trying to corner the market, too, with low-end catalogs, high-end catalogs, MFB speakers, television sets and, of course, video recorders !

Philips was also just about to buy Marantz from Superscope , a move which gradually depleted Philips' own high-end offerings which managed, however, to remain available (with highs and lows) until the early 90s.

As per Philips' habits, the real name of the units has a 2-digit code added in front of the "regular" name and all three units were available in black as well, with a " 1 " added.
So, the HFL series consisted of the :

(22) AH673 / AH6731 : tuner
(22) AH572 / AH5721 : preamplifier
(22) AH578 / AH5781 : power amplifier.

Despite intersting engineering and very busy design (a definite plus in '78), the HFL series didn't sell as probably expected.
Perhaps having offered a dedicated HFL turntable and recorder could have helped, alongwith better marketing and visibility in the increasingly crowded market hifi was becoming in the late 70s...

But Philips always had a distant relationship with " high end audio " and that is why Marantz very quickly embodied Philips' audiophile ambitions.

Few people realize that the roots of Protestantism are to be found not in Germany or the Czech, but in the Netherlands – one can refer to the Franciscan William Ockham or Gerard Groot. Why was it there where this new spirituality in the Middle Ages was born?

All of the processor functions can be shown on the TV using the OSD (On-Screen Display). However, this means you have to connect the video out from the processor to the TV. I prefer to go from the source (DVD player) directly to the TV rather than through the processor. The functions are also displayed on the processor front panel, but they are somewhat harder to read because of the smaller letters and numbers. The brightness of the front panel display can be adjusted.

Residential Building Cover indemnifies current owners for two things.  The first element of the cover is that it will pay out on claims arising from non-completion of the building work, for example, where a trigger event occurs during construction.  In that situation, there will almost certainly be costs for the owner to engage a new builder and the cover indemnifies the owner for those reasonable additional costs of engaging the new builder (within the cap of up to 20% of the contract price up to a maximum of $200,000).
