A hearing-damaged friend of mine had this in storage, and he was going to bring it out for use powering some speakers in his living room to add extra bass to his TV. I offered to swap him an Onkyo home theater receiver I had kicking around for the same duties, and he said sure. So I brought this home, not knowing what to think. I wired it up to the Klipsch Choruses and.... :thmbsp: I'm impressed. I generally don't like receivers, but this one sounds like music. It's got more "guts" than the Crown D75 I'd been running before (and rated at 45wpc vs 35wpc). Haven't tested the phono section out yet, but I'm certainly impressed. I'll A/B it with the Crown when I get the rest of my system put back together. I seem to recall that Nelson Pass got angry with Nakamichi over their implementation of his design into these receivers, but it's quite nice. Here's a pic I stole off the 'gon, mine's in pretty good shape, just no place to photograph it now.
