Great while it lasted. Just need to get a new one.

  • Summary: Ours is about 10 years old and worked great until recently. It still works, but it keeps shutting down the left speaker and if you play older albums (IE from the 60's) where the tracks were on different speakers, you need to sing along with the lead vocal, or else there's no lead vocal.

Small but strong receiver.

  • Summary: I bought this to put into a vintage cabinet because of its small size but strong output. It is also versitile with a lot of input connections. As yet, I have not powered it up and cannot comment on its sound. I will get around to the cabinet installation when I select the appropiate turntable.

Great while it lasted ...

  • Summary: I have this unit. It was more than ample filling a 24 by 35 great room with fair quality sound. It has way too many sound field selections AND YES, it can be turned off by the remote. But it just died. Of course, it is more than 7 years old and out of warrantee. No one will service this thing.
