Summary: About a year ago I decided to totally upgrade my stereo system. I wanted that "vintage" sound [Sansui/Marantz] and ultimately purchased a 1971 Sansui receiver. All was well for about 3 months and the unit started giving me problems. I loved the way it sounded but my tech guy was unable to find the parts to fix it.
Summary: I know... It's just another 5 star rated review, but take this from a VERY jaded stereophile who was perfectly happy with a vintage 80's Marantz receiver (a hand-me-down form my uncle) that recently began exhibiting signs of imminent failure. All I cared about was replacing the fantastic sound of the unit I was used to. My parents had an awesome Marantz back in the day so having grown up with, plus owning one myself, I knew this was the way to go.
Pros: Its a Marantz, and the price is right baby.
Cons: It would have been nice to have some sort of LEDs on the front of the unit to indicate volume level. Accidentally woke up the family at 4 am a couple of times, but no real issue.
