For the vintage audio enthusiast, I have a Marantz SR-9000G receiver. Built in 1982, this was toward the end of the 70's stereo wars and represented Marantz's transition to the more modern design of the 80's. Rated at 130 Watts/channel. It looks and sounds good with a couple of flaws.
1. In the lower right front corner, there's a ding on the wooden case. Looks bad if you want to pick out flaws and have microscopic vision, but presents well from 5' away.
2. The plastic antenna mounting ear is broken off.
Other than that it looks and sounds good--especially for a 37 year old piece of history. AM/FM/Tape 1/Tape 2/Phono all work.
Along with the receiver, I have a pair of Marantz HD880 speakers. These are a 1978 vintage. They sound great, and they look pretty good for their age. The foams are all good, l-pads work, and each driver works. To the best of my knowledge they haven't been re-capped and all drivers are original. Now for the bad:
1. There are assorted dings and scratches on the cabinets, but nothing that you can't sand out and refinish if you're into that sort of thing.
2. The grille fabric is ok, but it's got a few pulls and minor holes. A few grille pegs are broken, but they stay on and look fine.
3. Somebody swiped the Marantz badges. That's bad, because they're valuable all by themselves.
These would make a nice vintage system for the fashionably old-fashioned. I know some will be tempted to ask, but the answer is no. I can't meet you someplace. If you want them, you'll have to drive to Alexandria, MN to get them. The price for the receiver and speakers together is $750. Otherwise $400 for the receiver and $400 for the speakers.
If you have other vintage stereo equipment, a dump trailer, a long track snowmobile, or a 30" draw, 45# draw bow to trade, I'm open to that as well.
