Just arrived. Sherwood S-8800 FM receiver

This is a fantastic receiver. It's rated at 50 watts/channel, and at 46, is the oldest solid state piece (I think) I've had. It sounds very, very good. All the inputs sound great, clear and quiet, including the FM only tuner. I find it cool looking, and like it as much without the wood sleeve. The metal shielding is heavy duty, and the perforated metal cage around the output transistors and heatsinks is very funky. It's driving the JBL L40s as I write, and the sound is luscious.
