Bought from ebay and it arrived filthy. I removed face plate and top cover and found the inside covered with a 1/4 inch of dust. So after my thorough cleaning and adjustments I was rewarded with great looks and kick-butt sound! I usually recap my stuff but was afraid it would change the sound of this receiver. It was perfect and my best sounding piece of audio equipment for low to medium volume listening.
And the 45 watts allow music to go very loud. The bass punches you in the chest faster then my marantz or sansui gear.
The highs are clean and very adjustable with the treble control.
I would recommend this receiver because it flies under the radar making it a steal price wise...

re: STA-95

The "New for 79" STA-95 was a complete overhaul of the heavy, mid-70s looking STA-90. Visually stunning, it ran from 1979 thru 1980. Manufactured by Foster Electric in Japan and Singapore. The "large counterweighted fluid-feel tuning knob" often was just the opposite brand new out of the box. Many units suffered from a shuddering effect when cranking the tuning knob, which the repair centers fixed with a touch of oil.
