No, I'm not asking for myself. I'm quite satisfied with my Yorx receiver and 8-track tapes. Now before you start saying this is a piece of junk, I'll just tell you I replaced the caps with audiophile grade stuff and the RCA's are now Cardas. It's been modded folks so eat me! However!!! This is a question that comes up frequently. Wouldn't it be nice to have an answer? Something that you could rely upon? I think so. Behold this link: http://www.resort.com/~banshee/Misc/8ball/ Yes, you can now ask Bob (no not HTF's Bob!) a question and he'll give you an answer. It should help you arrive at an informed decision. For example I asked it the following questions: Q. Is the Pioneer a capable receiver? A. It is certain. Q. Will Britney Spears do unmentionable things to me? A. Cannot predict now. Q. What about Anglina Jolie? A. My sources say no. Q. Are digital receivers any good? A. It is decidedly so. So there you have it folks. Easy answers to tough questions.
