Yeah, I called Varvatos the other day and spoke to the dude in charge of the audio gear. It sounded pretty interesting but it was pretty darn expensive. Supposedly, Mr. Varvatos himself tracks down this old gear and buys it only if its in mint to near mint condition. And also, supposedly they don't make much of a profit off the gear and its for sale to add character to the store.
It all seemed pretty bourgeois to me.
Too bad about Stereo Exchange not being in the used business anymore. Back in the day you could find tons of used great equipment there! C'est la vie! The NYC scene for used audio (and electronic parts -- remember the old Canal Street, you used to be able to buy tubes there) sucks these days. We need some good used audio sources and a good electronics parts district again! Anybody know of any places near NYC?
Check out ebay. It has become more and more expensive over time! But sometimes you can still find deals. An integrated amp or receiver should not be hard to find at a decent price. Although, integrated amps have gained in popularity because they may sound better than a receiver. Look up Nakamichi or Denon receivers on ebay; I bet they sell for cheap...
