    I have a NA-2000 Integrated Amp that I'm not planning on getting rid of anytime soon.

    The caps in the Gamma V leak and eat the traces on the board. If you have a Gamma V tuner and it still works, get it recapped immediately. If you have one and it doesn't work, open it up and look at the traces on the bottom of the board. It might not be too late to repair it. Maybe only a few traces need to be jumpered. Wonderful tuner. It is likely that Nikko used the same shitty caps in other pieces of the same series. If you have any of those, better replace the caps.

    The early Nikko Alpha, Beta, Gamma series was outstanding. Dual Mono block designs on many of the amps with overall great build quality. The Gamma V tuner is rated one of the best tuners over at the FM tuner info site. There's a lot of good info on AK about the Nikko brand. Unfortunately, they did not last too long after the Asti corporation bought the brand and it died in the late 80s.

    An unsung hero, I liked Nikko too. My buddy’s dad had a really big, over 85 watt’er in the living room. I’ll bet it was fifty pounds. Speaking of pound, the poor eight inch Ohm speakers they had were severely abused. I don’t know how they didn’t end up on fire.

    37 years ago I had the amp and tuner and KLH speakers It really sounded nice, My buddy has the tuner still to this day. I would get a really nice rack and screw all those components in. That would be a thing of Beauty! :beatnik::beerchug::smoke::smoke:

    Here's me
    The cd player was a victim of a recent incident. It has since been replaced with a Tascam CD200BT. So I'm set for awhile. I've been thinking about adding a CO-23 (or 2) into the mix, but then that requires a couple more amps ( Alphas, of course) and then actual new speakers, since the Advents are not set up to bi-amp. The current configuration does have a mono sub, though, driven by that Alpha on the bottom, bridged. So, its a never ending cycle of want.:beerchug:

    I have a Nikko NR-1415 as well. Picked it up while visiting Memphis in 9/10 condition with original owners manual, polishing cloth, and sales receipt from a store off of Elvis Presley Boulevard! It is not nor will it ever be for sale!
