Not much info, Frank. From the pic on the web site below, looks pretty lo-fi to me.

I have a LXI gifted from my father. Sounds quite good and built rather well. I'm guessing it's genuine Sanyo. Sanyo gets little respect with hi-fi audiophiles but it made a lot of Fisher fans happy after they moved production to Japan. That said, I prefer my USA made Sherwood SE-200 & S-7900A receivers.

I'd say my similar LXI has 30 watts per channel and uses a 3 gang FM tuner. I guess you could also say the Sanyo production for Fisher also lost a lot of Fisher fans! Anyhow, a LXI is pretty good in my opinion, especially if you are not too hung up on brand names and the opinions of others
