re: RX-1130

I recently acquired a RX-1130. The unit was extremely dusty inside and out when I got it, so immediately I cleaned and serviced life back into it. Luckily, all the inside parts looked great, no damage whatsoever inside and out. Its appearance seems somewhat futuristic that can wane from the late 1970's into the early 1990's. The face is not a typical silver nor black, instead its like a pencil lead champagne'ish silver with grey accents and amber orange display behind a…..what looks like bullet proof glass. It is really beautiful and unlike most receivers. There is a "hidden" compartment that houses many controls; tuner, bass, mids, treble, etc. The variable loudness dial is amazing and now I wish all my other receivers had this function rather than just 'on' or 'off'.
There are both- front and rear 'preout/ main in' amplifier jacks. This is another great feature for obvious reasons.
No subwoofer output.
Currently the RX-1130 is connected to a Dual C-830 cassette deck, a Sony SACD player, Technics SL-1200mkII, and speakers (front A) Altec Model 14 and (front B) Velodyne DPS 10 with Cerwin-Vega CLS-6's, and (rear) Celestion F15's.
So far, so good. It sounds great in 2 channel. Its very lively, detailed, not colored, and doesn't seem stressed. I haven't got to play with the surround yet.
Overall, I have only positive things to say about the Rx-1130.
