Not sure if this belongs in the 2-channel or electronics forums.
I've been lusting over a vintage Marantz receiver for quite some time now. I'm in no hurry to make any purchases but would like to gather some secondhand experience. I in no way need any of the monster Marantz receivers that go for several hundred dollars and up but would be completely happy with a smaller unit like a 1030 or 2216. Eventually I would like to build a nice little 2-channel system around this (I hear vintage Polks go well with these receivers).
From your experience are they any models to look for or stay away from? I'm looking to spend very little on this and can wait as long as I have to to find something around $100-150. I'll take as much info as you have time to give me. Any other advice and input would also be appreciated.
