I bought my Rt-2022 with an additional amplifier TAU-11 (has two) in very good conditions in a garage sale for 100 bucks. I listen to it now and then because I love the way it sounds. It's very heavy and weights a lot, but it sounds lovely crispy and powerful. I think I did good buying it. I recommend this machine. That's for sure.
