    Top 3 integrated you could hunt for
    Accuphase e-202
    Marantz 1180dc
    Yamaha ca-2010

    All have a unique total signature and built like a battle ship and will give you a totally different sonic experience to your Sansui 717 and others mentioned

    Easy. In fact I'll list my top 3 favorites in order, 1200, 1120, and 1060. The 1120 has 60WPC. The 1120 has lots of features and offers a great deal of performance with flexibility. Very sweet sounding, deep, warm, accurate, wide blooming soundstage and bass thats taut and hits solid.I'm not sure why they aren't more popular, but you don't see many around. The 1200 is my favorite and current daily driver, what else could I say about the 1200 that hasn't been said before?//The 1200 has everything you want in an integrated, in any audio component, but in spades, A very robust model that can drive just about ant speaker and make them sound their best. Mine runs on all the original carsexcept 2, the relay caps on the power board, but a full recap in in it's not-too-distant future, soon as I can get a recommended list together.

    Accuphase would be best of the three, but also the most costly and no independent repair technician service friendly. The Marantz and the Yamaha are well built but not battleship construction.

    I had a 1200, loved it until the relay went bad. I looked for a replacement relay for years... then sold the 1200. and just moments after I sold it, I found a source for the relay... I still have a 1150 somewhere with a 2130 tuner... I haven't turned it on it ages... I think I'll go find it. I like the 1150 face plate with the vertical meter.
