The sound is good.

 

 

Modifications:


Upgrading is rewarding with this R-2040 receiver.
The power amp section is of good quality and is capable of 2x50 Watts power in upgraded mode.

The electrolytic capacitors should be checked and upgraded through the whole receiver.
The power supply section is very vulnurable to heat and so the caps should all be replaced in this section.

This receiver should be set to 240V mains voltage in Europe.
