BOUGHT IT NEW AND IT GETS ALOT OF MUSIC BEING PLAID VERY LOUD. I AM RUNNING PIONEER SPEAKERS WITH 15 INCH WOOFERS AND HAVE TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO BLOWING THEM UP. IT PRODUCES 120 WATTS PER CHANNEL. IT ALSO HAS A SWITCH IN THE BACK TO CHANGE FROM 8 OHMS TO 4 OHMS AND CHANGES OUTPUT TO 145 WATTS PER CHANNEL. WHEN RUNNING YOU RECIEVER HARD ALOT I WOULD RECOMMEND RUNNING A COMPUTER COOLING FAN ON TOP OF RECIEVER TO KEEP IT COOL. YOUR RECIEVER WILL LAST FOR ALOT MORE YEARS. YOU WILL BE SHOCKED HOW HOT THEY GET. TRY TO FIND COMPUTER FAN THAT PUTS OUT GOOD AIR. ALSO A GOOD SURROND SOUND STEREO.WHEN YOU ADD A E.Q. WITH THIS STEREO THE INCRESS IN POWER IS CRAZY AND YOU BETTER HAVE SOME SPEAKERS THAT CAN HANDEL ALOT OF POWER. YOU WONT BE DISAPOINTED. I FOUND ONE BRAND NEW ON EBAY AND BOUGHT IT AS BACK UP. WITH KEEPING THE RECIEVER COOL IT WILL PROBABLY LAST FOR WHO KNOWS HOW LONG. NEW RECIEVER STILL IN BOX. FRIENDS ASK TO BUY IT AND KEEP SAYING NO.

I picked one of these up at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago, so I really havent had a lot of time to use all of the features. The receiver so far, just in stereo mode, really has a great sound that is really easy to listen to. It will play real loud, if thats what you want it for, I know that. I have a pair of JBL LX55 speakers that were from about the same time period as this receiver. The receiver was made in 1994. All I can say is that it sounds great. Not a very technical critique but it is my honest opinion. I have higher end audio equipment, Carver TFM35 power amp, Carver pream, and Carver tuner, and the Sony is no match for the Carver equipment as far as critical listening goes, but for movies, tv, and music listening, the Sony is great. I ordered a remote on line and its just a pleasure to use it for the audio when watching tv or movies. I cant wait to get a center channel speaker and two rear speakers to really see what this receiver can do. If you come across one of these "vintage" receivers and you dont have any plans of buying something more recent or updated with HDMI connections or optical outputs or all the latest features that you have to be willing to pay large sums of money for, dont hesitate to get it, It really sounds great and Im glad I got it.
