I hope no one is too frantic or freaked out about the impending holidays. Remember that vintage audio equipment is always an appropriate gift.
I freaked a little myself at the prospect of not having my Marantz 1152DC over the holidays, and so picked up two other amplifiers today to tide me over. I have a Marantz 1060 (with wood case), and a Sansui AU-888 (also in wood). I'm listening to the Marantz now, (which sounds great), and will be cleaning the Sansui and refinishing its wood case, and I hope, photographing both tomorrow.
