This receiver is classified as audiophile gear from H & K.Silver front plate, AM/FM signal strength meter, subsonic filter, tone defeat, 2 speaker inputs, stable down to 4 Ohms, high quality phono input, and 2 tape inputs.Anyone familiar with Harman Kardon knows that they use a high current amplification that does not accurately describe the wattage rating.This receiver rates a very conservative 40 Watts per channel using discreet circuitry and ultra high, direct current. More than capable of driving the most inefficient speakers with ease.This is the closest you can get to the warmth and smoothness of tubes in a solid state amplifier.This receiver is heavy and extremely well designed.Built in Japan.This vintage piece of audio gear would rival modern amplifiers costing thousands of dollars and would certainly blow away cheap receivers found in those big box stores costing hundreds of dollars. Before purchasing this receiver make sure everything works, including the lights, signal meter, all inputs, and tuner and be sure there aren't any deep scratches that would ruin the value.A prestigious and serious piece of audiophile gear, comfortable powering the largest of speakers and sounds absolutely warm and wonderful for those that still listen to vinyl. This one of a kind unit works extremely well with digital sources too. Purchasing this Harman Kardon 560 DC Receiver may be the best decision you have made for your music world. I couldn't recommend any other piece of equipment more than I would recommend this Harman Kardon receiver for your living room, bedroom or even the basement lounge area. You will love the way the smooth sound just rolls off the speakers and into your ears, producing clear quality music.
