I've had my HK 930 for some 37 years, and its still running fine!
It's Very flexible, 2 quality phono inputs, 2 Aux inputs, and 2 Tape monitors. The tuner is top notch. It can handle virtually any audio source out there, to include the latest HD TVs (some will require a digital optical to analog converter). Who needs that digital surround nonsense when you have Four Kenwood KL777/888 speakers in your living room anyway!?
The receiver pre-amp and power amps are separate so you can run in an equalizer (I run mine through the Pioneer Reverb unit for more flexible dubbing), or you can run an external power amp (I used to use a Soundcraftsmen MA5002, but it blew out on me).
All told, this is a nice looking, well built and very durable unit that can still hold its own against modern much less reliable receivers.
