Eico Cortina amp & tuner

Have an opportunity to pick up an Eico Cortina SA-3080 stereo amplifier & a matching ST-3020 tuner. They are very clean and sounded pretty good. Found 2 minor issues, scratchiness when adjusting the bass and some of the lettering missing above the power/speaker selector on the amp.

I don't see alot on this model with a google search. The metal cases are painted white and have schematics painted right on top of the case.

Anyone have experience with this make/model?

The Cortina is one of the latter-day Eicos, after they "jumped the shark". There are two reviews on AK, one is a "it's great for a little 15 WPC receiver", and the second one is a "meh". YMMV

Sa-3080

I did find this from another post, "In a 1980 buyers guide I found a reference to an Eico amp SA-3080 with 80 watts continous for $269.95.", and "The little Cortina, these are physically small, smaller then the KLH 52, was a nicely made series, especially in the integrated amp and tuner configuration."

Eico Cortina 3200 FM Tuner and 3070 Amp

Talking about nostalgia, I'm checking out these Eico Cortina components complete with operating/service manuals and schematics. I don't really have a need for them, are there any sites that allow ads for AudioKarma compnents like these?
