My teenage son(15) wanted a new system to listen to his favorite radio station as well as his cd player. He was looking at all these mini systems asking me which is best, as I would cringe each time he asked. He doesn't really understand fine audio. We went to BB, CC, etc... to look at equipment and I just couldn't bring myself to purchase what he wanted in his price range. Last week I brought him home a vintage mint Marantz 2220B receiver made in the mid 1970's. I told him he would have to tune the radio stations manually and he didn't understand what I meant. I told him this piece was superior to any mini system and many of todays stereo receivers and he didn't understand as he thought it was too old. After hooking everything up and turning out the lights to see the cool blue glowing lights he says, "COOL". After hearing the bass out of his speakers he said, "COOL". He asked how loud only 20 watts could be and as I cranked the volume to 1/2 he said, "COOL". It has been about two weeks since this purchase and I'm still hearing him say, "Thanks Dad, you're the coolest". Now I want an old Marantz!!
