This is an excellent Hi-Fi, reliable, functional and robust. Before, I also had a string Pioneer but less powerful (I can not remember the reference).
For Hi-Fi from this period, it has features that do not timeless at all, except that with the passage of time, it does not have optical connectors or other USB ports.
The qualities to be considered are the mounting elements (best SNR), the presence of a preamp and a separate power amp (2x110W RMS still ...), the digital sound field processor ( DSP with 5 fields with intensity adjustment + 5 user memories, parametric EQ 7 Band Graphic EQ 13 bands, Smart EQ = spectral analysis and automatic compensation, karaoke function, LPS = Listening Point Selector = choice between 15 listening positions with automatic settings volume and balance to deliver the best stereo effect, function 2 channel surround = surround effect with only 2 speakers), the cassette deck to flat drawers with Dolby B, C and HX-Pro, full function auto or manual recording and search functions, auto registration (polarization, level, EQ), the CD double drawer (1-bit Direct Linear Conversion) microphone input with level control and headphone output, the possibility connect 4 speakers with A / B selector; connections between different elements in the form of tablecloths computer (no loss), the circuit protection for all; speakers 3-way bass reflex with a tweeter and a medium dome + exhaust on the back, and a bandwidth of 40 Hz to 40 kHz; remote control with basic functions. In addition, each element (except the cassette deck) can be turned off individually.
The only fault I attribute to him is located on the remote control that does not have a function forward / rewind for the CD so that this function is repeated for the cassette deck.
Very good value for money
If I were doing? ... OK without hesitation ... and eyes closed!
