I've got an A-80. My dad bought it USED in 1983 (it was built in 1980). Currently it sits unused thanks to the MINT! harman/kardon HK330i I got at Goodwill for $10. Less wattage and "kick", but noticably better clarity out of the HK.

I have a RCA to stereo mini plug cable and hook it up to my computer, so I can hook up MP3'* to this old equipment. Not the best being a digital source, but hey, it works and sounds great.
I've also got a mammoth Nikko system with pre-amp and giant equalizer in the living room. My mom bought that new in '83.
