    I have a opportunity for a CR-820 one owner he bought it new in the 70’s asking $150 for it.

    Or a CR-1020 for $200. Looks OK, front panel lights out. Wood cabinet is clean and overall appearance is good. .

    What should I go with?

    I've had both and I prefer the higher powered CR-1020. The tuner portion seems about the same but the additional power really works well with the right speakers, such as the Paradigm Titans I'm using with mine.

    Not an easy decision, though. Have you listened to them yet?

    Good luck!
