Finding inexpensive tube receiver

I'm getting back into vinyl and I'm looking for a nice, powerful tube receiver. As are some, I'm on a limited budget and I feel "vintage" receivers get way over-priced, besides, there is no local shop to service or repair them. What inexpensive tube receiver would anyone reccomend? I listen to classic rock from the '60's to '70's.

There are no good, powerful, inexpensive tube receivers (unless you steal one).

I suggest a good solid state tuner or receiver like a Marantz, with a nice tube power amp (which will NOT be cheap).
