      You know it all boils down to how much real estate you have in your home to display your collection I keep telling my wife I need 10 more feet she's not buying it, but I am looking for a few more receivers, and then there's the ones that I don't know about, so I'm looking for the SAE the optonica the Philips and the Harden Kardon totl thanks Sam

        Olsen is obscure. I've only seen one example.

        All winners. My silver collection is not what it once was but I still have some good stuff. 300dc/3650/2130, KA907/KT917 with handles, Accuphase P200/C200/T101 and the two receivers. Sansui, Pioneer, and Yamaha are all gone.

      I have a strong appreciation for separates, but I don't have any of the separates that you have mentioned, the only separates that I currently own is 7 Altecs 9440 + 7 Carver p.m. 1.5 amplifiers which I don't use the Carver's but the Altec I use in my home stereo system I run the Altecs in bridge mode , I plan on collecting some of the better separates eventually I just need to finish my receiver collection first

        You are on your way. Great idea to focus on TOTL to keep the numbers in check.. You may have seen this receiver site:

        Chris is in so cal and he might answer your questions on which are the ones to collect. He is the vintage receiver expert bar none.

      I do not have the Sansui G 33000 and the Marantz 2600 yet, but substituted for now for the g9000 and the 2385, I think they represent the manufacturer's well

      No I don't have those, who made them? What I'm looking for is the Philips ah 903 maybe it never existed, it's rated at a hundred and 125 watts. And then there's the optonica sa 5901 ,5902 and the 5908 I don't have. do you know which ones were made in silver and which ones were made in Black? And if the Philips never existed what is the biggest stereo they made in silver or black? Thanks Terry

        KA-907 is TOTL Kenwood. E-202 is Accuphase. Philips separates AH572, AH573 AH578 are @200 wpc set

      What I'm collecting is the top-of-the-line model from each manufacturer from the 70s to the early 80s in the solid state integrated stereo line with at least a hundred Watts ,I've got it narrowed down to about 4 - 5 Stereos left that I'm trying to find Maybe you could tell me if they even exist anyway thanks for responding back Terry

      Parts are not that expensive except for main filters which can be pricey. Labor is the wild card. Try pacificstereo.net.

      I have a chance to get a crown xls202(non D) for $170 locally. After seeing your posts on it do you think it would be a wiser choice for the money than another adcom amp? I'm very familar with how adcoms sound but have never heard this crown before.
      Thanks for your time.
