Volume control: switched resistor network volume control with 88 1 dB steps.
Front panel controls: main input, tape input select, volume, balance, phase, mute, display, and bypass.
Remote controls: main input, tape input select, volume, balance, phase, mute, display, bypass and standby.
Frequency response: +- 0.25 dB, 20 Hz – 20 Khz.
Signal to noise: measured at 70 dB minimum, A-weighted (ref 1 mv input, 75 dB gain setting).
