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!
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.
