post #6901 of 13590

If that kind of thing makes your wallet jump out and say "BUY ONE!" then I have good news - one is up for sale in NW houston on CL http://houston.craigslist.org/ele/3698737332.html . It's not mine, but oh do I wish it were. ~3.5k for the lot. Tempting...

 

Just saying.

I have a chance of getting one for free but it means having the thing sent to me from another city, so i'd like to get some advice on the prospects of this combination.

To answer your question, almost certainly but since I haven't heard that combo I can't be 100% sure. That's a little newer amp than most talked about here but if you can get it for free and it's working properly, I'd say go for it. Even if you had to pay shipping costs, that's a great deal.

Yes, one could politically incorrect and scream NICE RACK!

Just saying.

That would be a helluva way to jump right into vintage with both feet! It's not actually that great a price, in that you could piece that same rig together for less. But the idea of just having it all there in one shot is kinda cool.

I think of most CL prices as a starting point anyways. It's still a nice looking system.

I thought I was back just in time this afternoon to make preparations for the Men's title game: Louisville & Michigan. Instead blink.gif there's a MAJOR fight underway brewing inside the listening room. A bit of background first. In the past year, I had been saving up furiously for a Black WooAudio WA5. I reached my savings goal on 31 March. And this past week, Jack and I have been in talks over how I wanted this new amp "spec'd" out.

 

Well, today I had an appointment out of town and on my way there I tripped over some vintage iron. Bought it Johnny-on-the-spot; now home wink.gif with it. BUT, I had to use my tube amp money for the solid-state purchase...eek.gif, say what?! My thinking is that "Extremely rare" justifies things a bit.

 

I'm going to name my new amp "Baby sinister!" very_evil_smiley.gif

 

822435

 

 

Baby needs a bubble bath, no question. Gonna put it in the shop to get it dolled-up & checked up. This pix does not do the amp justice - this amp is really BIG.

^ First to congratulate!

That "baby" should keep you busy for a while.

We can't wait to see her when she's all cleaned up!

Thanks, parbaked. I'm not really being impatient if I "Service" shop, am I?

Will call around tomorrow to see which shop could get baby in and out the fastest. Well, barring any problems...

That's looks absolutely stunning, and I'm jealous. Congrats on a super duper find!!

post #6912 of 13590

I'm always hearing about the G33000 & G22000 being mentioned like ghosts - always reading owners' comments but never having the cash when they come up for sale occasionally. I only had the cash today because it was meant for another amp. rolleyes.gif

 

Can't tell you how ecstatic I am. I had also been hot on the trail of the Pioneer SX-1980, but will sleep just fine with the Sansui.

Just bought a Marantz 2252B and spent all day cleaning it. Previous owner babied the hell out of it. It's in perfect condition. Middle bulb is out but the thing even lights up bright blue. No scratches, nothing. Best sounding receiver I've ever had and SO MUCH POWER. I find it hard to believe you can do any better for a new or higher end receiver. My 1402 should be ashamed of itself.
post #6914 of 13590

not  to mention the 2252b 2265b and 2285b are probably the best looking marantz of the 22's

the all silver front on those is stunning.

 

 

yeah silent one i think you'll rest just fine with that thing in house.  there's always time down the road for the 1980, and after that a 2600

post #6915 of 13590

SO, that is amazing. I just yelled "oh my sh*t!!". I have been looking for one or the 1980.

 

Congrats, man - that's hot.
