I never realized until today that the larger knobs on the front of my R71-A are green instead of black. I've owned this receiver since the late '80's and never noticed this before. Just looking at it, the knobs appear to be black but shining a flashlight on them reveals that they are in fact green.

The R71A is a great radio. I played with one back in the 80's. I had one myself a couple of years ago ... but it never worked so I got rid of it. I personally loved my R7000 better than the R71A, but I would be happy if I had either of these radios that worked. I think I will just win the lottery and get an R9500 instead. :wink:

I am over here laughing like hell cause yes-I went and got the flashlight. Yes I sat there and saw the green knobs with the flashlight. Yes it is friggin awesome.

This guy>:D is particularly thrilled that the knobs are green.
