Others I liked in this range are the Sansui AU-317 and AU-517, and NAD 3020.
The 1060 may not be the clearest or most resolving integrated, but it has it's charming side and can be a real pleasure to listen to, with it's smooth presentation. It's a true classic, absolutely beautiful to look at, nicely sized, and there were many, many made.
The 1060- pretty reliable units. The power switch seemed to be a part often needing replacement, so that's on par with things. At it's age, it should still sound good, but these are around 40+ years old, so I'd consider a re-cap in the near future, to make sure it's working correctly for the next 30 years. I have a tech local in Boston that is top notch if you want the info.
Think of a recap as good insurance- $150 is the ballpark going rate, and this will have the unit back in spec, and likely running for the next 30 (or more) years.
A unit with older caps won't sound 100%. It may sound good, but we've come a long way in capacitor quality and technology, and a straightforward cap replacement should keep it sounding like intended, as well as staving off any expensive repairs due to cap failure.
Yeah, I really am sorry about that. The past 2-3 months were a little bumpy. I'm here today, but I'll be back full-time shortly. Just got some things going on that need dealing with first. Sorry to everybody about my messages. They piled up on me.
Good to hear from you...
