Bar none the worst component. Have ever owned was an akai receiver I traded a marantz 2265 ( which i Later got back) to get this cool looking digital face receiver........... It blew up on 2 occasions and I had it repaired both times. This is the piece of gear that turned me into an audiophile it being so bad taught me a quality lesson I learned well. I recognized the sound quality difference but did not want to believe it. I was 17 when. Made the trade and 22 when I got the marantz back. A close second was a Vector Research CD player that every once in a while worked.
