This is a vintage 1970's MCS 3230 receiver that was sold by JC Penny. It's in very good condition with only a couple of small indentations in the cabinet. It has a silver face and all the controls and lights work. There are the usual hookups for phono, tape, aux and 2 sets of speakers. I tried both sets of speaker clips and initially had a problem with the right side of A. I don't know if it was the way I had the end of the speaker wire into the spring loaded clip, or if it was something else. I tried the B set and it worked fine. I forgot to try the speakers again in A. I just wanted to mention that. The hookups on the back are similar to a Pioneer SX 450 that I had. Instead of them being mounted to the back of the unit vertically, they are mounted horizontal which makes it easier to attach your add-on units. The tuning dial works fine as does the tuning meter and stereo indicator light. This pushes out 30wpc and is powerful enough to drive some very large speakers. Considering the age of this, it sounds good and should last for many more years. If you're looking to start an analog system, or just want to upgrade the one you have then this may be for you. Because this is a vintage piece of electronics, it is being sold"as is."


The "A" speakers work fine. I was able to hear both channels very loud and clear and very well balanced.
