I saw what I believe to be the totl Vector Research reciver at GoodWill yesterday. I never heard of this brand before but according to semi knowledgeable dudes over on AK they say it's an American maker from the 70/80s and their stuff was decent. I just read anothers' querie. What I need is a stand alone tuner or vintage receiver to go into my bdrm. to replace the current set-up of the Realistic SA-150 integrated and a Sony surround receiver that only the audio outs work and with it's tuner section being the worst ever w/ 0 control or pulling in power. The price for the VR was $50 and this thing really had some heft to it. At this particular GW there is no barganing and what's listed is the going price. Also I don't know how far they tested it and what if any is their return policy if any if something w/ tax is over $50. Sorry I did not record model # but by weight alone I do think this is the totl model. Is this worth anything, worth at least a check out if still on the shelves or a total pass due to price and or the product being beat out of the box? Oh yeah, coloring is dark grey and has a Sansui/NAD type of look with the face plate looking real good and the top has some minimal scratching.
i remember seeing an Onkyo tuner in the for sale section a ways back. If this still available and less than the VR receiver is that a better option for about half the cash.
