re: SA-1040

I bought one of these also for around $ 50.00. Some light rust inside (looks like it was stored in a basement).
I am in the process of restoring mine. Let me take a moment to curse Pioneer Engineering department. Many of their cheaper receivers had NO access to the bottom!! The entire circuit board must be removed much to my dismay. Pioneer improved on this one but unfortunately you cannot get to some of capacitors and regulator because the bottom cutout was only about 70% of the receiver. Very poor design. There is no reason that the entire bottom panel should not have access. Also the extremely cheap power meters rarely work. I was surprised to see the one on this video does work. I own many of the SA series. I will say they are a cheap (price) but pretty decent amp for casual listening. They are very reliable and a good bargain.
