Do any still use an older high end tuner from the past?....
Not high end, but I have my eyes on a Pioneer TX-D1000 but don't know how much I can offer. I'm inclined to offer 50% of new retail price but does anyone here know what the going price is? I don't gauge pricing by Ebay 
Stereo Receivers from the past...
+1 for FB marketplace, seems some people don't know what they have value wise

@ roberjerman any particular model you recommend? And don't worry, this is not going anywhere. With your vintage experience you'd likely be a fun [email protected] thanks for the recommendation

Ndevamp thank you sir  
Through unfortunate circumstances........
As it turns out Bob,  he was an electronics guy by trade & we had discussed him opening it up & checking the caps. In his passing the last thing on my mind had anything to do with this & wouldn't have asked. So, when I'm ready to set t...

Mmmm Crow tastes good...
@ gochurchgo you my man are a better man than most. I to have a friend who is a father of a special needs child, and when we meet I hug him like a brother. As I slowly upgrade you will be the first to know what I am getting rid of, god bless you sir. 
The Truth About Power Cords and there "Real" Price to Performance

Soundstage disappeared!?
Thank you everyone for helping. I can't seem to find a service manual for this unit to be able to troubleshoot so if I take this to someone to check it out, what parameters do they have to go by? Maddening I tell you. I thought about buying a new ... 
Soundstage disappeared!?
@Eric  Yes I did. The clarity, etc. is there but the sound of being in the concert hall now sounds like I'm listening in a bar with bad acoustics. @Miller carbon yes 8, because they were there from my A/V system & I figured hell give it a go &... 
Your favourite Rush albums?
