The ES10/15 came out in around 2005 give or take. That was toward the end of the era of bad caps. By that time the problem had been discovered and hopefully corrective action taken by the better...

Possibly, but you won't find one. That's the only unit I've seen in recent years. I was aware of it, but $200 isn't worth gambling on a composite-only unit. Another factor is NTSC, as the AED-660 is...
