What about..

I do not understand audio components as well as you guys, and please tell me why I am wrong...-this is my thinking. The pioneer SX 1980 was made in 1978 for $1,295 and puts out 270 watts x 2 (540 total). The B&K AVR 307 came out in 2001 at $3,500 and puts out 150 watts x 7 (1050 total). The Pioneer would run about $3,470 in 2001's money. I have a feeling that the B&K is going to sound better at 140 watts output than the Pioneer would at 260 watts output. And the B&K would be about $5,000 today. I am sure there are better amps out there, but not easily available (in every major city as B&K was). And I have not seen any of those for less than $5,000. Please be kind...-I want to learn...-teach me please
