I'd like to get a modestly priced decent vintage receiver from the '70s-early '80s. Everything I've seen elsewhere on the topic recommends $500+ models. I can appreciate the audio fidelity that one of those beautiful receivers puts out, but unfortunately I just don't have that kind of cash laying around. $100-$200 is my sweet spot. There are quite a few of them on ebay in that price range, but I don't want to take a shot in the dark and wind up with something better suited as a boat anchor. I'd like to use it as a tuner and for my television/video game audio. Sooner or later I'd also like to add in a decent turntable. I know I'm not going to get a big bad legendary receiver for that price, but can any of you guys help me get the most bang for my buck? I'd really appreciate the help because I'm kind of at a loss at this point.
