I found the both channels produced good music, and controls appeared to work fine too. At the same time, I also noticed some hum to the connected speakers. So, I think the amp will need service to the power supply's filtering capacitors.
Of course, for this vintage amp, a full service to those important components is a very good idea. Its 2x45 Watts RMS is plenty for most speakers. Physical condition is very good for the age. Overall, this is an excellent vintage ARC product.
