Pros: I have recently bought a used pair of Bose 901's , the small set back is that most new A/V recievers cannot accomidate the EQ. The Teac receiver does just that , so finally I get to hear the thrill of the Great Bose 901's and I am really thrilled , for the first time in years I actually just sit back and really enjoy my music . I hate comercials so I like my HD receiver and SiriusXM Sattilite radios
Cons: I have no cons to deal with on this unit the price was right in there as always with Newegg and the product is just as advertised.
Summary: Our surround sound does not have a phono input, thus no amped sound from our phono. We pitched an old Amp/receiver thinking we would not need an analog phono player again. Well, nostalgia ruled and we dug the LP's out. It's nice to play through a couple of large bookshelf speakers. Good basic features work well. This will not blow your hair back...leave that to the 80's blow dryer and gel!
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.
Summary: This thing is a music maker, it reminds me of the receivers from the 70's and 80's and that alone speaks volumes. Teac has a great throwback on..its hands, the fit and finish is very good, this unit should be getting rave reviews!
Troglodytes wanting a 2.0 receiver will be happy with this

Summary: When it became time to replace an old Heathkit stereo receiver the first replacement lasted a few years and then the audio section died. I replaced that with my first AG-790, chosen in part because Teac made good stuff back in the 1960s and 70s. Also in part because the world seemed to be moving to 5.1 systems and other home theater stuff. That weak left channel may have due to a poor connection in one of the (replaceable!) power amps.
Pros: Good brand name, time-tested design, two channel stereo, not excessively flashy display. Should be an "old reliable".
Cons: This replaces my old AG-790 which had a weak left channel. I don't know if the same problem will recur, so derated one star.
Summary: This is the third one I have purchased...this one for use in an antique juke box. These are workhorses...always reliable...great value! They have a phono input, and have a true on-off switch so can be used in a switched outlet or power supply...both assets hard to find anymore in a reasonably priced amp.
