This unit has the newer blue PS caps (Frakos are long gone).
It works 100% on all inputs and outputs..I just realized that the Pre-out /amp-in was an option I guess. I have used this unit as a stand alone amp and stand alone preamp, and its phenomenal in both roles. The display is nice and bright!
The only thing is that it's missing the side panels (tough to find). But inside, It's immaculate.
I don't have a remote but do have the original manual.
