This unit is solid. Sounds amazing after 40+ years of providing service. Recently picked this one up at a great price, and only had to change the radio lamps. I used a de-oxidizing agent on the pots, knobs and switches while she was open and gave her a good dusting. No reason why it won't last another 40! It's a gift for my son, who's wanted my 8080Db for some time now. I think he'll be impressed.
