Excerpt: We had to replace an old home use receiver, and bought this TEAC. The features on it are just what we needed. I especially like the smooth volume control as it shows a number - I no longer have to try to get to the volume I want - I just go to that number. Connecting the wires was very easy - just another good thing about the 790. Thanks to my salesman (2KY), we now have a perfect receiver.
