This integrated amplifier was my first high-end audio purchase way back in 1992. I have yet to find another receiver or integrated amplifier that has the detail and warmth as if you were right there listening to a live performance. I believe this is what is lacking with digital amplifiers today. For this reason, I keep this 44 lb behemoth around and hooked up right next to my modern equipment. What it lacks in distinct channel separation and less channels it more than makes up with it superior sound quality. Its sound field processing sounded amazing back in the 90's and still does today. My favorite music sound field is the Cellar Club simulating a more intimate performance venue primarily for Jazz music. But it works for all music. Each sound field has a very distinctive character that is easy to hear and feel more so than current Yamaha receiver sound fields. If you have a chance to hear this one set up with some good speakers don't miss it.
