TV/VCR/Stereo Troubleshooting/Technics SU-Z980 receiver/amp


I have the above model Panasonic receiver in my Technics component system.  It worked beautifully until a month ago.  It will turn on and light up, play for about a minute and then goes silent.  Can I use a SU-Z900 to replace my current one for use with the other components?

Yes.  So far as I know they both have standard level outputs and everything is compatible and interchangeable.  The main difference is in audio performance, perhaps.

Let me know if you need more guidance, but I think the z900 will work just fine.
