After getting very mixed reviews about the Vector Research receiver at GoodWill I decided to pass. I did remeber a C/L ad for a couple of receivers. I mailed the guy and the Kenwood was gone but this Nikko 6065 receiver was still available. This receiver is beautiful and the reception and tuner function is about 50x better than the Sony it's replacing which hit the dumpster a few minutes ago. Again even if the reviews were better like 9000 people handled the VR unit and it's case was scratched up. This a wipe and it's good to go and is playing right now. I thought I going to go for a stand alone tuner but this came up and is a little more versitle. Price, originally listed for $50 he went for $40 and was in the next town over.
