Awesome receiver ! Still works perfect. Sounds amazing ! Love this amp, I had it for years. Compared to never consumer amps, they can't hold a candle to this in power or sound quality, and stereo bass/mid/treble controls are nice too. Very flexible connections with two tape inputs and aux for a digital source. Great low and mid-frequency detail with relatively tight bass with suitable speakers.
Good construction, easy to fix !

Great sound and power. Lacks some of the bells and whistles of the higher end 2000+ series models but for enjoying your vinyl collection it works great!
