Yes, yes Pioneer Silver faced receivers do look classy. But I find the Sansui G-series faces to trance my glance as well.

I'm reusing the photo, but man do I love that blue dial!

I like my NAd 701 it has 0.03 THD and is really smooth with a nice black background. But sometimes I want something more lively and extra punchy. Mine hits hard but I want something to compliment it even a bit more edgy/harsh.I guess I better look at pioneers or realistic.

My SA 508 (SA 5800 US version) is a nice compliment to the NAD sound. A very balanced sound (typical Pioneer) but defo more lively than the typical NAD. Not as dark and it has a more brightly lit treble. They look stunning as well with all silver and blue display. You won't get the completely black backround however depending on phones used.  

 

I would also look into early Technics if you want livelier as well.

Wow I didn't think anyone would defend realistic. I know it must be better than the new crap we are stuck with today though. Well there is a place downtown Hermiston, OR that has 2 or 3 Realistic receivers but they all looked like crap. he had a big black face one that he wanted $125 for he also has lots of 70's tuners but none of them look very good. the best he had was a Kenwood KT-8300 and I bought it awhile ago. Strange with all those tuners, he has zero amps to go with them.

Well I am still on the hunt for a technics but I better slow my freakin role as i just bought a rotel rx60    today and dont want to waste my headphone money on em like I just did.

There's a badass Technics on CL too............SA-5460 (65 WPC) for $240. Sounds high........

And two very badass Pioneer integrated amps. SA-9500 and SA-801. Gorgeous and high power.

Where did you find the Rotel?

eBay: )

The guy at the store says he charges 95bucks for a tune up. When compared to me paying $47 for the unit it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. I don't know what it takes to deox them etc but sheesh maybe that's normal I dunno.

Anyone gotta Technics SA-1000? If so, what do you think?

No, but I sure would like to :)

 

Any high end 70's Technics are worth snapping up imo. But they are rare and with this comes a high price. The SA-1000 was $1700 in 1978 :eek:

Deoxit treatment is easy. I'm on an iPad so can't easily put the link up but on Audiokarma there's a thread on how to do it.

Don't even mention Rotel to me, My guy I buy from had an RX 1603, just cherry, for 400 bucks and I passed on it because my wife was with me(she gave me that why do you need another one look).  It was an absolute beast. Gave him a call last week and it was gone.:( I see one on EBay right now......sigh.

@Oregonian I wonder what his tune up includes I will look into it! He has got to stay in business though.

yeah that thing looks like a freaking BEAST whoah. end game receiver status. I cant do those for a few reasons:

- i just use the headphone out

- live in an apartment

- not tryin to go toooo big

 

I do wonder how their hp outs would compare to some of these <1k audiophile amp rip offs though.(speaking emotionally rather than rationally)
