More good ideas.  Is the major benefit to Barter Town lower prices and more variety than the classifieds here?

The classified on Barter Town are focused on vintage amps and turntables, speakers, etc, rather than the headphones and headphone amps here.  I bought a nice Pioneer vintage integrated amp for $130 on Barter Town - very happy with the whole transaction.

Agreed. Although you do see some headphone goodies from to time, I wouldn't pay the subscription cost if I was strictly looking for dedicated headphone gear. Just like if this site charged a fee to view the classified ads, I wouldn't pay it if I was strictly  looking for a pair of speakers although some are posted here from time to time as well.

Thet are being sold at an estate sale 10 minutes from where I live.

Looks to be early-'80s Marantz gear. I'd snag it if they aren't asking too much.

It wouldn't be worth my time if it was free. But hey, that's just me. I like marantz, but that's not a good example of vintage marantz at all.

What the consensus on  the Yamaha CR 1020 is this example a good deal at  $285.00 or is it to expensive i think its from late 70's and would Senns HD 800 be a good match for this amp it looks pretty good to me .Heres a few pictures of the amp  . Thanks guys.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

Beautiful receiver and great sounding I'm sure. It's well documented however that it is full of unobtainable parts, so a repair isn't going to happen if it has a major issue.

If you're looking for a cheap, but decent, system for a garage or for work, it would be fine.

If it's inexpensive you might as well snag the and see how it sounds to you. You might like it more than the general consensus.

Now that is what I would call a great representation of a vintage receiver; simply gorgeous! But be careful, like Skylab said, it's full of unobtainium parts. So it is a bit of a risk.

I love those thin rectangular knobs; you don't see that very often.
