re: RS-806US Parts List

The parts list seems to be missing pages 6 and 7 (Capacitor parts).
Anyone have a replacement?


re: RS-806US 8 track stereo

can anyone advise what type of speakers to use with this component?

can I use a speaker and just rewire the end with the proper fitting "RC plug" ?

re: RS-806US 8 track stereo

I believe this unit has line-in and line-out jacks. I don't think the line-out output has enough power to drive speakers so you would need an additional amplifier or stereo unit that has tape-in, line-in or aux jacks. Some of the stand-alone 8 track players had outputs that could drive speakers and these jacks are usually labeled with "Speakers". If you can find the owners manual for this unit then this would confirm the correct way to connect the player.
