Hello AKers. I presently have a Sansui 2000x receiver that i like a lot. I have been actively searching for an integrated amp to eventually replace it because i am only really interested in how the phono stage sounds as I don’t use the tuner anyways. I have recently purchased a Marantz 1060 amp that is quite nice but I haven’t yet properly compared its phono stage to the 2000x. Going to try and get to it this weekend. I just met a guy who has quite a bit of equipment he is looking to trade/sell and he gave me a list of the receivers he has. I am okay with having a receiver until I can find the right vintage integrated as long as it has a great phono stage. He has Sansuis G-5700, 6700, 7700 and 7070, 8080, and 9090. Also, Pioneers SX-880, 950, 980, and 1050. Is there one of these receivers that sticks out as having a significantly better phono section than the 2000x? Sorry for nutty long post!
