Had one of these in high school back in 72. This thing was the envy of all my buddies.
Too long ago to remember how it sounds other than wonderful at the time. Never let us down.

I purchased a brand new 330A back about 1974.
Had it up until 1989 when it finally died.
Recently found another 330A in beautiful condition with wood case (as pictured).
I did a full re-capping, a bit of realignment to peak it up, and it's a sheer joy to listen to.

This receiver is a keeper.

I have had one of these before in the early 80's and recently bought one to replace a much newer model. I forgot how good these really sound. I use this in my garage and have a pair of Thiel SCS bookshelf speakers as well as a pair of outdoor Advent speakers. This receiver drives both speakers well. Tuner is good, but would be better if it had muting. I have an iPod adapter jack connected to the AUX input, and use a CD player on the tape monitor input. In this way I can select between iPod or CD with ease. The amp and tone controls work well. Sound is warm and full and almost sounds tube like. This old entry level vintage receiver blows away many new receivers. Best thing is that it typically holds its value--$200 new in 1974 and worth nearly that now. Mine is the version made in Japan instead of Taiwan.

The 330 receiver is a joy to look at with, looking at the small poweramp, a good performer with massive lows. One can only think: "Wow, how good must the more expensive sisters sound......."
