This is a classic cheap Heathkit product at the very low end of the market but like all other similar Heathkit items it works quite well. I have removed the dodgy 110Volt power transformer and now use a plug pack. The audio output stage has very little in the way of temperature stabalisation and when I bought it at a junk shop in country Victoria the output transistors were dead.
