My Marantz 2218 sounds excellent. I'm sure the other 22xx's sound just as nice. Ton's of other options as well.

I recently scored a Yamaha CR-820 on Ebay for $33. Didn't really need it. It was local, so no ship fees, and I had always wanted one of these bigger Yamahas when I was a kid. It's a little bit dingy, and I needed to clean the switches, pots and inputs with contact cleaner. But Whoa! this thing sounds good! Power in reserve, warm, punchy and clean sound -- even some modest high fi qualities (soundstage depth)! Very good FM tuner as well -- manages to catch and hold signals that for some reason give other tuners trouble where I am. Even if I didn't have fancier, better electronics, I could be a happy music nut with this receiver.
