 PM488AV MARANTZ Owner's Manual by Roger Jove;
The manual was properly scanned and perfectly readable. The only small problem is that I couldn't use my dear Ctrl + F to find a word I needed.
 WAE 15000 BAUKNECHT Owner's Manual by Peter Krejci;
Nothing wrong with the manual or the delivery - came to me the same day I ordered it. But afterwards I realized that I ordered the wrong manual. Probably better with the Quick start - version. So maybe it would be better if we could see a list with inhold for each manual before ordering?
 T4850 ONKYO Owner's Manual by Ronald Morssink;
Bought T4850 High End Tuner a few years ago, but i didn't know where all the buttons were used for. So i purchased the owners manual. Perfect! Just what i needed.
