    Optonica and the Sharp Plus lines were often overlooked by the crowds of Pioneer, Marantz and Kenwood fanatics.

    Big issues with Sharp and Optonica. They were late to the audio game, often didn't get much of a dealer network in audio (Sharp's biggest selling audio products were cassette decks, their budget decks were well regarded, and portable audio like boomboxes). Optonica made some very nice audio components, which had distinctive styling, a lot of high tech features, performed very well for their price point, and were quite well made. Optonica was a lot like Kyocera in that respect, and both were very underrated, uncommon, nice gear to own.
