Offer: Pioneer Multi-Channel Receiver (White Salmon (4 miles north)) 62d - Pioneer Multi-Channel Receiver VSX-521-K. Essentially non-working. For someone to fix, use for parts, or who has LOTS of patience. Upon powering up, the initiation (“handshake”) works only about 10% of the time. If you have the patience to recycle the power button about every 15 seconds, it will eventually come on and (usually) stay on until powered down. Only tried with FM but presume the problem is with the other functions as well. It has, thus, virtually never been used. Purchased several years as an “open-box”. Didn’t first try it out until several months later, and then belatedly realized why it had been returned! Comes complete with the remote, two antennas, microphone, and instruction manual. You can easily search model number to see additional pictures and videos (of front and back). Note: This model was NOT made with pre-amp inputs for a turntable; you would need to attach a separate pre-amp. for that.
