tube stereo amps - Sansui, Dynaco, etc. which one?
Being a tube nut with my guitar gear, I'm thinking of checking out an old tube receiver for a secondary stereo. Does anyone have any opinions about what to look for? I'm thinking maybe a Sansui 1000A, but I really don't know. I read a post somewhere from a dealer who said that 95% of the old tube components he comes across don't work, so I know it's risky, but if I could go into it with a few pointers, that'd be great.  
Thanks in advance for any advice, Christopher
