Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

New SS Amp Toy.......any others?

Thank you for suggestions. Some are rare that finding one may be an issue & like a kid I want to play. Intregrated is easier for me as matching preamps can be difficult to find.

BTW- The beautiful Sansui AU-X701 was distroyed by FedEX. It was speared by a sharp object into the chassis & ripped thru the metal chassis. Real cute FedEx.

I find the Yamaha CA-1010 highly rated and available so I will find one. The Sony TA-1130 is a good suggestion, but rare. Is the TA-1150 the same but a different power rating of ??? I like smooth, but crystal clear & dynamic audio. Creamy or warm or typical run of the mill PP vintage amp tube distortion is no fun for me.

Philips? Not much for sale & overpriced IMO. What else should I seek? Marantz & McIntosh are of no interest right now. I owned a Marantz 2216 and the internal amp sonics was sorely lacking details & open dynamics.
