Buy some CAIG De-oxit.
It's made for cleaning contacts and controls.
You'll need to open the case ( UNPLUGGED)
and shoot some de-oxit into the volume control . There should be a **** or something to spray into.

You can get De-oxit at radio shack or

My SU-G95 provides for switching between two sets of speakers (A & B) but there is no way I can see to get sound through both sets of speakers at the same time! Any suggestions? I expected to see the...

I can't find a manual or a decent picture of the rear panel but maybe that's because they don't want you running speakers in parallel as it may present a dangerously low impedance.

If you REALLY want to risk it just wire both sets of speakers to the same posts and watch out when turning up the volume. Monitor the amp for excessive heat in case it starts to cook itself. If theamp shuts down even once, UNDO the scheme.

The safer way, assuming the two sets of speakers' relative volume levels are about equal, is to run them in series with each other and present a higher (safer) impedance.

The recommended impedance is probably silk-screened right on the back.

problem with electronics is there are so many possibilities! before changing the power amp i suggest u check all the paths from pre-amp to power amp. bad resistors cud be it, faulty capacitor cud be draining power to ground. insufficient power supply to final amp cud also be it. so before making any rash changing pls check all components including the power amp module.

Poor sound.

amp must have a phono input use it if it still has low volume you will need a shack model#42-172

Stereo reciever takes several seconds to power up

The power switch is arcing internally and needs to be replaced. This is a common problem with some older receivers. Sometimes the switch can be opened and the contacts burnished.
