Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners - Page 802

post #12016 of 12979

Congrats! Looks like you got one hell of a bargain there bud. Be sure to give us some impressions. 

post #12017 of 12979

Yard sale and flea market weather should be upon us soon, so I'd expect to see a lot of postings of killer finds coming in the next couple months. I know I'm always on the lookout for vintage receivers and integrateds.

This thread is STILL going strong?  Awesome.  Might be my favorite Head-Fi thread of all time.

I love the all silver look, whether it be Pioneer, Realistic or Marantz.  Joehalo, you done good! 

post #12023 of 12979

Yeah, that's a beauty of a Marantz. Nice score, and enjoy!

Thanks....I'm trying to get back here more often.  I miss this place.  Having two teenaged kids with lots of activities will keep you VERY busy!

post #12026 of 12979
That one looks very nice. I would say around $350.

That's a fairly decent piece of unit.  Price varies for many owners and buyers due to many reasons, such as being rare, supply in demand, desperate, and just plain OLD badass unit.  

 

To my knowledge the Pioneer SX-1010 wasn't a very big hitter.  Don't get me wrong, not that it's any slouch, just wasn't the one people are WOW'ing for.  I haven't heard it to even judge it but for me I'd walk if it were $150+.  Why?  because there are some nice sx series out there that sometimes you can get at a steal.  I'd look for a a 1050, 1080 or 1250 if I were you, might have to spent a tad more money but well worth the money and time for waiting :wink_face:

 

But if you're REALLY serious, buy a 1980 buahahahaha  "evil laugh…." j/k... now that's the schiit...

 

Just my 2 cent…  Don't take my word for it.  If you like the sound into your ears then thumbs up.  Happy listening!

Nice score on the marantz!! Congrats. As for the pioneer sx-1010, I would have to respectfully disagree with  dyang. For 150.00, I couldn't get there fast enough. How good is it? Well if you head over to audiokarma, many prefer it over the sx-1250 and sx-1280. I've owned the sx-1010 and sx-1280, and while I do prefer the 1280, it's close and they both sound similar. But the reason many over at AK prefer the 1010 is because it's a little bit more on the warm side and slightly more musical. That's a very, very good sounding receiver and it's a step above the 1050 and 1080 sonically imo.

I had a restored SX-1010 for a while and I can tell you it's a great sounding receiver. The push buttons are a weak spot though and need constant cleaning.
