    Smile Craigslist Score!!!

    I just scored a vintage Pioneer SX 980 receiver off my local craigslist for $50 included was a pair of Bose 501's from 1977, the cool part was the seller lived 3 blocks away. It's in great condition and weighs a ton actually about 50 lb's.

    Will I hear a difference on my Polks compared to my Luxman?

    Any thoughts, suggestions or opinions would be greatly appreciated as I'm a newbie at this.

    congrats.
    nice find.
    sound should be the same. maybe a little warmer.

    If one of them sounds a lot different from the other (Luxman vs Pioneer), and they are roughly the same power, one is probably broke.

    Pioneer is all the rage these days but whatever Luxman, I like it more.

    I'm not sure how to decipher your comment, is Pioneer not that good or just a preference thing?
