Marantz 2220 Receiver/Pioneer SX-580?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm to use a vintage receiver and right now im looking at the Marantz 2220 and the Pioneer SX-580, i was hoping for some feedback on both receivers.

Would anyone take the Pioneer over the Marantz?

The Marantz is being sold for $160(Negotiable) while the Pioneer for $55, is the Marantz Receiver worth the price its being sold for?

Note: Local Purchase only, not looking to buy a receiver from the net at this time so im deciding between the two mentioned.

If the Marantz is in clean, good working condition and has been checked over by a knowledgable person in the last couple years I'd get the Marantz.

Pioneer made some good stuff, but Marantz even then was a step up in quality IMO. I've had a vintage Marantz Integrated and currently own a Marantz receiver and a SACD player.

If you're buying vintage be sure and check DC output before connecting speakers!
