Try to find a Sony STR-6800SD receiver. This got rave reviews in the Brit. audiophile mags. Rated at 80 wpc, this measurement was determined using a bell curve of theoretical limits; mine always pushed 105 or 110 wpc at rated distortion during the annual McIntosh clinics (remember those?) Quality build, with a REAL attenuator, and including a nifty Dolby FM switch (never utilized by the broacast industry). These flew off dealers shelves in 1975 & 1976 and kicked the crap` out of a good Marantz unit that I had previously been using. Totally blew away the 160 wpc Pioneer, too!
