Onkyo is overlooked sometimes when it comes to the golden age of HiFi. This presents an opportunity for excellent $$$ per performance.  The A-10 is an interesting integrated amplifier with about 80 watts per channel, excellent THD, and a design that was rare in this class of equipment.  The amplifier consists of dual transformers (one per channel) and a single dual-section main filter per transformer.  In theory, this eliminates distortion caused by program material with high levels of left-right separation. It creates a more stable power supply and linear response regardless of the opposing channels output.  It is built as well (and better in some cases) compared to the Pioneers, Sansuis, and Marantzs of it's time.  The faceplate and knobs are solid aluminum and the switches operate with a solid "thunk".  The preamp section also includes the ability to drive MC (moving coil) cartridges which would normally require a separate matching transformer / phono amp to accomplish.  I restored the A-10 but kept the original main filter caps. I would normally replace these, however, they tested well and I think the main caps are an important part of it's interesting layout.  The tuner was adjusted and works perfectly.  The cosmetic conditions are good but not great.  The A-10 faceplate and knobs are perfect, however, the black case does have some smudges and a few imperfections.  The T-9 isn't quite as nice but it looks good.  It seems as though somebody re-glued the plastic window in the past and some of the glue ran down the plastic.  It's noticeable under close scrutiny but presents very well.  The black case on the tuner is also in good condition but does have a few flaws that mimic the A-10.  Overall this is an excellent system for anyone to enjoy without breaking the bank.  Shipping to the 48 states is included.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks!
