    Good luck finding a CR3020, I saw one for sale in the States about a year ago for about 3k, plus a shed load of $$ for shipping...
    always wanted to own one, but rarer than hens dentures in the UK.

    Hey, I'll need good luck with most of these, but if you don't ask, you don't get! I'm a patient man and I generally find most things come along - eventually!

    Well, as a collector there are items that particularly appeal for a variety of reasons. In my case I generally collect receivers that are 100W/ch minimum. So that automatically applies a 'mid 70s' start date. Plus, early 70s hifi receivers, amps and tuners was finding their feet technically due to rapid advancements in semiconductor design and indeed circuit design. In short, a lot of technical advances were made in the early 70s that began to bear real fruit in the mid/later 70s and early 80s. I also have to appreciate the appearance and physical design of a receiver. No doubting that NAD is great kit though, I have owned a few pieces in the past. The NAD 160 is 'only' 55W/ch and so apart from anything else is not really what I'm looking for. The NAD 300 is a similar design and vintage and is 85W/ch. I suppose if someone offered me a NAD 7080 at 90W/ch I may be interested, but looks wise it's a bit 'black and modern' looking compared to the classic, silver anodised and wooden ended cabinet sets that I generally prefer. Otherwise, one's wallet and storage space forbids collecting anything and everything! Hope your find your '160' again.

    Surely the Pioneer PD91 and 93 are CD players not Cassette decks?

    If looking for a vintage cassette deck I have a Sony TC-K555 in clean, working condition - could probably do with a service though.
