Best value receiver, remarkable sweetness

Entry level amp of the Company's Catalogue that year... This amp is incapable of 4 0hm ...that means you can't bi-wire a speaker .... not impressive at all if you ask me ... Other amps in that price range, at the time, were way more solid than this ... even some less expensive brands were ... my opinion ...

I recently had a chance to leisurely compare three vintage items: the Denon DRA-345 receiver, an Onkyo TX-82 receiver, and an Adcom 5200 power amp, all around 45-50 w/ch. The Denon was very clean and had good FM performance. It was very listenable and sounded about as good as the Adcom, a little less dynamic so don't push it close to its power envelope. The Onkyo was warmer, muddy in the midrange, but was capable of high sustained output levels and has decent FM performance. The Onkyo had too much coloration for critical listening. The Adcom was a cut above the receivers for control of woofer cone motion and presented the most articulate bass plus impeccably clean mids and highs. It's a great little amp, purportedly a Nelson Pass design. I'm keeping the Denon for my office system- nice remote control and pretty darn good sound.

re: DRA-345R

Hello. I just bought this amplifier. I have the original remote control . I cannot make the volume down with the remote control and also I cannot power off from the remote control .All other functions are working.
When I press "volume down" and "power" buttons on the remote control , the led on the remote is blinking.
Anybody have a ideea about this problem?
Thank you.

I recently bought this unit and when it was shipped it was in working order. After it arrived it wouln't play. I removed the back and found the drive belt off the flywheel. I have tried to install the belt as shown in the service manual but it keeps slipping off of the flywheel. Does anybody have any ideas as to what the problem might be?

Receiver goes "restarts" after a small tap on casing

Hi, I wonder if anyone has encountered this problem and/or knows a solution to resolve the issue.

The receiver has been in the family since the mid 90's. My dad bought it new. I've owned it now for a couple of years.
Recently (for a month or two) the receiver shuts down after a small tap on the casing or if someone puts his/her glass on the cupboard in which it stands.
It appears like it is going into some kind of safe mode. The machine restarts and all stored radiostations are lost. Lately it does in certain cases not restart. When turning the power off and back on, the display will not give the correct things.

I think the problem could have been that the receiver was in a closed environment and the cd player was on top. But there is no visible damage inside the receiver.

If there is anyone who has had the same problem or knows where to look, I would be verry grateful!

re: Receiver goes "restarts" after a small tap on casing

Hi, I had a similar problem with mine - it would turn off if any of the input or station preset buttons were pressed. Dry solder joints on the voltage regulator turned out to be the problem. Also the left channel was treble and not much else: dry solder joints on the loudness potentiometer. Hope this helps. Cheers.
