This is being reviewed from the vantage point of a classic receiver from the golden age of the mid 70s. This was Sony's top of the line receiver capable of delivering well over 60 watts per channel both channels driven 20-20,000 Hz, in compliance with FTC standards. I own one and have validated the power output numerous times. The FM tuner is based on a 4 gang condenser and has held alignment over the years. The receiver is physically much smaller than comparable Pioneer, Sansui and Marantz receivers of the day. Styling is clean and classic with good feature sets and few gimmicks. The sound quality is very good, with excellent dynamics and a bit more inner detail than my Marantz 2270 which is quite good itself. The phono section is a good performer but lacks adjustments for loading.
