Onkyo TX-1500 MKII Vintage Receiver 2nd Owner Restored New Feet - $90 (St Marys)

123456
This Onkyo TX-1500 MKII has been with me since 1982. I bought it from the original owner when I was a freshman in college. He bought a more powerful system and sold me his smaller system that featured this little gem. It is only rated at 22 WPC but it rocked our dorm room for three years before I bought a larger system myself. I have kept it all these years and my daughter had it in her bedroom for several years from around 2007-2010 when one day it would power up but produce no sound. I assumed the IC module finally gave up the ghost and tracked down a rare original New Old Stock replacement module but never got around to repairing it. This year I stumbled upon it and decided to restore it and give it to my daughter but the little brat no longer thinks vintage audio is cool. I tested the boards and main caps and replaced anything that was out of spec, reflowed a few solder joints, replaced the IC module, and cleaned the chassis, inputs, pots, and switches. I replaced the feet (one was splitting). It is in very nice cosmetic condition with minimal scratches and blemishes. This Onkyo series has an excellent phono section and very good tuning section. A copy of the original owners manual is included.
