good older 5 channel Receiver/Amp with lots of features
9 March 2013
Summary: I have an older sound system, including a phono, tape deck and remote stereo speakers, an IPod and record out plug for phono to digital recording. This receiver/amp works fine for my older system. You do need to experiment a bit with the inputs for the IPod, but after I figured it out, everything works fine. I like the dedicated controls for bass and treble adjustments. I had a Sony stereo amp that had a noticeable AC hum on the bass sub-woofer channel.
Summary: I like the way the receiver balances the headphones output to that of the speakers, very easy to compare what is really coming out of the system. Am not very sure about its performance with various types of music, but I like the sound of female voices. I use this to drive a pair of Paradigm reference Studio/20 speakers I like the new remote control . It is sleek and full featured.
