re: RS-881

I got this receiver many years ago, and it was very reliable, sometimes the audio output ic had to be changed but after that it worked fine, thanks for share thisgreat piece of information.

re: RS-881

Agreed, its not a bad unit at all. but to no surprise my unit needed a new STK chip. the guy who had it before me blew a speaker with it and almost took the right channel out with it.
i have the RS-881A which to my knowledge is electrically the same as the 611, 881 and 881R my unit was built in 88 (date code on the main board). im assuming this unit was a 1-2 year run. i'm trying to find the tape deck and turntable for it. i do however have the matching STV-751 speakers for it.
this receiver has those 16V plugs on the back for the tape deck and turntable.
Tape deck model CR-W881A
Turntable model MT-881A

re: RS-881

I have the same unit. My display has gone out and I have had this unit since the 80's, I think. Bought it brand new. Still have the speakers, but the CD player is a JVC from 1992. Fisher sounds great! I just need the display to work. Any help would be great.

re: RS-881

Check the 4 "Grain of wheat" bulbs behind the display. if no bulbs light check for AC voltage. if no voltage check the fuse AND resistor on the tape deck and turntable power connector board :)
