The 8000 is a pretty good receiver, but it is not going to give much of todays audiophile gear much competition. Even when the 8000 was new, it was just a higher end mid-fi. If you don't already have one, I don't think I would go trying to search one out. Unless you know someone that is just unloading one at a low price. They are cool looking, mid-fi sounding, and you could do better with a new piece of gear for about the same money as a used 8000. If you've already got one and you like it, then use it.
