Late 1970s White Hitachi Digital Clock Radio Model KC-675E


Crossing over that period where space-age design gave way to something different, the Hitachi KC-675E is a bold slab for the bedside. A white plastic case with space-age curves and unusual layout gives way to a black metal section housing the speaker, and controls, which wraps around the lower front part of the unit. The only side control is the alarm setting switch. The clock radio has all of the features one might expect, including a three band radio (FM/MW/LW), wake to buzzer or radio option (set by the aforementioned switch), snooze and sleep modes, clock display dimmer, and illuminated tuner display. Everything appears to function as it should and the sound from the speaker is very rounded and impressive.

A good-looking piece for the bedside and in good cosmetic condition. There are some very minor losses to the black metal surfaces on edges and corners, but the plastic casing is in very good clean condition with no chips or cracks. You might be picky and say that it’s very slightly yellowed, but it’s only just “off-white”, more of a cream in reality and it’s consistent throughout which makes a big difference.
