So I have been currently questing for the various components to my very own starter system. I already have the centerpiece if you will, a beautiful Technics SL-1200 turntable all rarin' and ready to go. I am currently looking for a receiver to mate my turntable with and some affordable speakers to listen to the tunes with. In my weekly thrift store finds I stumbled across an Salvation Army with these: 1) Kenwood KR-5200 ($80 w/ 2 "kenwood" un-id speakers) 2) Pioneer SX-720 ($50) Both units lit up fine when I plugged them in. All lights were in working order and cosmetically they looked gorgeous. No ostensibly visible dings or marks of any kind. So my question: Which of these receivers would be the best mate for my Technics Turntable? What are their respective stats (wpc, etc)? Do either of them perform better than the other in any specific areas? Any tips for a first-timer setting up his first system? Many thanks for all your assistance.
