Excellent stereo receiver is a bargain


This receiver replaces an American-made and rather expensive preamp\/tuner purchased a number of years ago. The phono input is much quieter on this receiver, and the overall sound is noticeably better. The wifi connection with the adapter was initially...

Good Receiver
