It was OK Jerry. I don't think it was as good as I expected it to be though. It's commonly assumed, because of the 'V' designation, that it's a VFET design. Not so. There's an insanely big toroidal trannie in the case and watch your toes if you drop it!! I actually preferred my Yamaha when I compared them side by side.
Ah well, it would fit the bill for that job - put it anywhere in a room and you can't help but see it, it's so big! It's way bigger that standard rack size. Personally, I prefer the understated cool of the Yamaha.

For anyone on the lookout for a really great classic receiver, you could do a lot worse than this H/K 730. The 730 was the flagship of the 30 range, not massively powerful but lovely sounding. Be quick though - not long left!
