Question Late 1980's Stereo Receiver in 2017


Established Member
I've just acquired a late 1980s Stereo Receiver, originally sold in Tandy (Remember them).

The receiver is the Memorex (Realistic) STA-2380, I've tested the unit as much as I can and all seems to work without a problem. I had one when I was little, and the nostalgic trip kicked in, so I snapped up this mint example with its original box and price sticker (£299.99) in 1987. The thing weighs in at more than 10KG.

Full specs here

Given this unit is nearly 30 years old and shows little sign of use is there anything I should keep an eye out for.

Nope. If it's working now and hasn't been used much you have a bargain and a bit of nostalgia.
If anything fails it will just happen and you can't do anything to prevent it.

Many amplifiers, that are older than this are still working well.
