First of all, I do not recommend Panasonic for many reasons :-(
They used to make a wonderful product for many years. But over the past 13 years, unfortunately Panasonic's quality has dropped off significantly, it almost all of their products.
If you want something similar to the sound quality and power, I would suggest anything by Pioneer, or Kenwood.
There are a lot of these receivers out there right now that are really good.
The BEST way to get something that will sound as good if not better, is to visit a local Best Buy store. And take a listen to their audio equipment. They are really good with knowledgeable help and you can read the specs and output info as well;-)
That way, also, if you go with Pioneer or Kenwood(recommended) you will know you are getting a product for the same cost but it will last a lot longer many years, you will be much happier. I have been a hands on technician for over 35 years, I know the industry and what fails most often.
Alternatively you could take that Panasonic unit into Best Buy and they will send it out for repair, that will cost about $100.00 US
I hope you had a Happy Easter!
