You'll be much happier than you can imagine!
By the '80's they pretty much had transistors figured out.

That does have some really good reviews. Some people even mentioned they had one for over 6 years and still works great. Which to me is great for an old amplifier.

Assuming the capacitors haven't crapped out and it's been taken care of, it should work well. But all components age obviously.

Yes, though the Marantz name engenders some added (unnecessary) cost.

Pioneer, Rotel, Yamaha, etc will sound as good for less.

Depends what they are asking. You may have to end up changing out leaky caps, and that is a serious pita. The "vintage" solid state stuff is so far superior to modern offerings (sound and power wise) that it's hard to believe we once could make stuff sound so good (and rate the power output accurately) But, it DOES have to be maintained every so often. I say "listen to it if you can". If not, ask the seller for a buy back guarentee...(just in case it something is the matter). Good luck, bro.
