well I took the day off of work to take my son to see his early head start class and meet the teachers and all that stuff, then took him to a doctors app.,got new tires for the car and went to a couple of garage sales. I went up and looked around, the only interesting thing I saw was an akai receiver. went back to the car and told the wife your turn. I also asked her to see how much they wanted for the receiver. well she picked it up, It was a wooping 2 bucks. I hook it up to my cheap panasonic speakers and it works fine, volume control is scrathcy. The panasonics sound the best I have ever heard them. I will not hook it up to my sda'a until I have cleaned the volume pot. Anyway just wanted to share my 2 dollar find.
