4 out of 5 "Denon DRA-400 receiver"
I bought this on E-bay. A 40 W rating. The phono input takes Moving Coil as well as Moving Magnet....great with my old Ortofon MC-30 cartridge, as well as my MM cartridges. It has more than adequate power to drive my Wharfedale W-60E, Smaller Advents, Advent 5012/W and Celestion Ditton 66 speakers. Reportedly, the receiver was tested to 54 watts.

The FM section works well with the simple ribbon di-pole, and great with my outdoor TV antenna. The AM loop was missing, but an external antenna works fine.
