The 661 is part of the 881....221 series of receivers which came out in the early-mid 1970's (late'73 to early '76).

 

The 6060 which you already have, is part of the 9090..5050 line which is the next generation that came out after the 881...221.

 

The 661 is a nice receiver, and Ive heard good things about the 881...221 series from other owners, so I suppose its your decision to make, depending on the seller's price and the condition of the particular receiver for sale.

 

My own preference is for the G series models, which I highly recommend.

Thanks for the reply..i will give the owner a call this week. He is also selling a sausui turntable it's a sansui p-d15? never heard of it or know if it's any good. he's asking 150.00 (cdn) for the both of them. I currently have a stanton t-table running with my sansui 2200 amp (which i really like). let me know if it's a good deal for both.thanks

I believe the price you mentioned comes out to about $125 in USA dollars. Its really your choice to make, I dont want to impose my own preferences on you, especially if you might happen to be interested in the 881..221 series, as some people are. Speaking for myself, I would recommend getting a Sansui G series model. A mid-range model would be a good choice as its more afordable than a larger model such as the G-9000/8000.  Thus, models to keep on the lookout for would be G-5000, G-5500, G-6000, and G-7000. If you like power meters, they would be on the G-6000, on up.

 

I am not familiar with the turntable you mentioned. I imagine its decent. My own experience with TT's have been with Technics, (SL-D2) which is a model Ive always liked.

 

As I wrote earlier, its really up to you. If you feel compelled to buy them, atleast try and see if the seller can lower the price a bit.  Good Luck.
