Welcome as you might be the only guy here with a system similar to mine.

The best thing would be to save up and search ebay for some better used crap.

I advise against that as it will soon consume your life.

My experience(s) with The Receiver is that the "soldering job" not all that great and it pretty easy to have a broken (or totally missed!) joint somewhere on one of the boards. Pull the top and while it "running" tap around (I use the eraser end of a wooden pencil) the boards until/if you find a spot on one of the boards that makes the right channel go in and out...shut it off and carefully inspect (with a magnifying glass/light if possible) all around that area for a "bad" joint. if found (or even "suspect") re-heat/re-solder that joint. this might actually work! Also, contact clean all the volumn and balance pots....
