Fully restored MCS 3245. 1979 model - 45 watts per channel. This is the best of the 4 in series MCS 3245, 3235, 3233, 3223
4 gang FM - FM sensitivity: nominal 1.5 micro volts, limit 2.0 micro volts. FM signal to noise ratio: nominal 60dB, limit 55dB.
Unit has all electrolytic capacitors replaced with quality audio capacitors such as Nichicon, Elna, etc. All potentiometers cleaned and lubed. Power amp bias current set to specification. Tuner aligned. Lights in light bar were all replaced and rewired with new 194 bulb sockets and have green bulbs installed. I find the green to be easier on the eyes in a dark room, but if you would like clear/white bulbs like it originally came with, please make a note to seller when you purchase and I will install what you prefer. 194 bulbs are common and could find a variety of colors to fit the look you want.
Someone asked me why put so much into this receiver when you can get a Marantz 2245 for a similar price. The reason is, this receiver looks better, has a better distortion rating and specs, easily repairable, much more rare, has many more options and audio controls, more inputs, more outputs, and if you study the schematics you would see it is overall a better receiver.
These are my favorite and this is about as good as you will find of this model.
Thanks for looking!
