Sansui 9090DB — $1200
One of the king-daddy classic “monster” receivers from the mid-70s. 125 watts per channel of mighty, clean and sweet vintage 1975 power. Like Wooderson say in Dazed and Confused, “We are talking some f****n’ muscle.” Beautiful tone, tons of overhead, this baby can push anything you throw at it. This particular unit is in perfect shape functionally, and almost mint cosmetically, with just a few very minor marks. Vintage receivers just don’t get much cooler than this.
Pioneer SX-727 — $375
This is a gorgeous, classic and super-sweet sounding receiver from Pioneer’s golden era of the early ’70s. 37 watts per channel of gloriously full warmth in a real wood case. This is a classy looker and an outstanding performer.
Marantz 2215B — $300 — Sold Marantz receivers from their classic era deserve the glowing reputations that they enjoy. This is one of their lower powered (conservatively rated 15 watts) gems. Your not going to want to push giant floor-standing 3-way cabinets with these, but any quality bookshelf speaker will sound glorious with this unit. The controls have been cleaned, lights updated with LEDs. It’s working perfectly and sounds very sweet.
Pioneer SX-3400 — $175
A late ’70s entry level (15 watts) unit from the end of Pioneer’s classic era. Much like the Marantz listed above, this is an excellent sounding receiver which will power most bookshelf speakers with ease.
Sony STR-313 — $150
A 25 watts-per-channel late ’70s Sony silver face unit. Very clean and nice-sounding unit with a slightly smaller footprint (16 inches wide) than most other classic receivers from this era. Can easily power most bookshelf speakers.
Yamaha R-30 — $95
Nice and clean slimline 25 watts/channel receiver, circa 1983. Typical Yamaha build quality. A fine budget-minded starter receiver.
Akai AM-A102 — $80
Basic 25 watts/channel integrated amp (no radio tuner) from the late ’80s. Built-in EQ. Clean and working well.
Kenwood KX-830 — $150

Pioneer CT-W403R — $90
Nice dual-cassette model from the late ’80s. Dolby B/C/HX Pro and plenty of auto-feature bells and whistles.
Technics RS-B12 — $60
Silver-faced Technics unit from 1984. Brand new capstan drive belt installed. Dolby B.
Yamaha K-340 — $50
Solid Yamaha quality cassette deck, Dolby B, C and HX Pro.
Sony CDP-M555ES — $200

Reads CD text discs and/or you can input disc names and search your collection via the remote. Has optical digital output for feeding into a DAC. The last CD player you’ll ever need, and with fresh belts for years of trouble-free operation.
