re: R-S55

Anyone have a better version of the service manual? Probably just resort to the R-S77 manual as that one is good quality and the differences are hopefully not so great. Cheers

Beautiful sound

I'm pretty new on the field of hi-fi music. Got one JVC R-S55L last week for 70 euros: nice condition, beautiful sound. Crystal clear, rich and warm. I use it with two 90w speakers. Symphonic music over FM radio is breathtaking! The only problem is that with this amplifier the poor quality of most of my MP3s is so evident, I must dump everything and re-grab in loss-less FLAC!
