The Project 60 was Sinclair's
biggest commercial success of the 1960s. It was a modular
stereo system comprising the following components:
The system was not provided fully constructed. Instead,
the consumer would receive the individual elements and
would have to assemble them into a finished unit, a
task which might require some soldering. The modular
nature of the system meant that the appearance of finished
versions was largely up to the whims of the consumer.
The picture on the right, for instance, shows a completed
Project 60 in a wooden case, with the dials of the Stereo
Sixty on the front of the fascia.
The Project 60 was a considerable success, not least
due to the fact that it was about half the price of
a comparable amplifier at the time. It sold well and
was supplemented by the Project
605 kit in 1972. It was eventually superseded
by the more advanced Project
80 kit in 1974.
