Thanks for your good effort anyway, my friend. One way or another, my Marantz(es) will live to sing another day. Cheers.

DS.

Ahh yes, that warm sound and those lights!!! I have a Sansui 9090DB out in the garage hooked to a pair of M3s. I enjoy the way that receiver looks with it's lights on and the garage lights off. It's a WOW!!! I've really gone crazy with these vintage receivers. I have already bought and sold a Kenwood 7400 and a Pioneer 950. I am now waiting the arrival of a Pioneer 1050, 1250 and 780, all bought on ebay. Yipes, help me.......

I'm done buying the vintage stock. I now have a Sansui 9090DB, a Pioneer SX-1050 that looks brand new-the wood is perfect, and a Pioneer SX-1250. I'm done. Oh these sound so good and they do have the power for 2 channel!!! Hmmmm.....

I'm looking at purchasing one of the vintage Pioneer models, may be a dumb question, but can a cd player be connected to one of these old beauties, can't remember if the vintage stuff has analog connections.

Yes it can. You just use any of the line level in connections.

Well, Frank, you've purchased a receiver from the year I was born! It features 20 watts per channel, and those blue and red lights Marantz is famous for! With a brushed aluminum face, it has style that will fit into any household. And all for the low, low price of only slightly less than it was sold originally!

In all seriousness, enjoy your new toy. Kinda wish I hadn't gotten rid of mine...

Yes, I hook up my CD/DVD player and even the TV sometimes through the AUX connections and the tape connections. Won't work through the phono connections but works fine in the others.

I just rediscovered the sound of my Sansui 9090db as well. I've had it for nearly 30 years and it has never let up. It is the most reliable audio component I have ever owned.

This weekend I disconnected the amp section and connected the Sansui as a pre-pro to a Bryston 4bsst amp with a Sony ES SACD player through the aux input and an Oppo dvd-a player through tape 1 play inputs. Tried it with various speakers and I was wowed by how good it sounded. Compared to my Arcam processor it sounded a bit warmer but very pleasing and just as clear. Also the tuner section is without equal. I was tempted to buy a new stereo processor for music only but the 9090db has won that honour.
