A co-worker gave me this beauty because it had a blown channel and had been sitting in a closet for over a decade! (I was the last stop before the trash!) It just needed a good cleaning and the service bulletins needed to be done. I think this is the most beautiful receiver I've ever seen! And the sound... WOW! Very clean and dynamic! It has become my main receiver!!!
