Just sounds right!!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Nice rig!! This 746 works better on HF than the other TS-2000 rigs I have had in the past. The 2000 was always noisy on HF and got annoying.

Operating on 2 meters is pretty close between the two... I would say the 746 has a more realistic S meter... Both worked well on the 2 meter band.

I did have to repair the back light regulator on the 746, but not a big deal...( Lots of info on line about that. I replaced the faulty transistor with a bigger style 220 case )... And still, NO harder than replacing the burned out bulbs in the TS2000 with leds.

I do wish I could monitor 2 meters while operating HF with the 746 as the 2000 can do, but maybe I don't know what I am doing!! Ha ha!! All in all, I feel the 746 is a great rig and can't see it going anywhere soon.. It just works and sounds great!!
