Sansui? Pioneer? Marantz? Advice
I'm looking to put together a new vintage (late 60s-late 70s) system. I have very limited knowledge of vintage equipment but have been using a Sansui 661 through a pair of Sonab unit 1 ?(the little square ones) speakers for quite some time and I have loved the sound it creates. I recently lost one channel in the 661 and I'm getting it restored so I'm keeping it regardless.
I am thinking about using this as an opportunity to upgrade and was curious what folks thought would be the best combo for me. I have the opportunity to pick up a Pioneer SX 727 and my pops gave me a set of Marantz Imperial 5s.
I'm most interested in the best sound at low volume. My Sansui has probably never been above 4 on the volume dial which more than fills the room. Which reciever? Through which speakers? Is there a similar reciever from Marantz or another manufacture/model I might look for?
Any input would be appreciated.
