This particular 5550 sounds almost as good as Marantz 2265 and Sansui QRX-7500; I can listen to it for hours, without any listening fatigue;
In Technics lineup, this is a special machine.
Later models like SA-500 SA-700 cannot touch it, as far as sound quality goes.

I've been collecting vintage stereos for a long time, so trades for old Akai, Marantz, Sony, Denon, Kenwood, Sansui, Sherwood, Philips receiver, amplifier, CD player, speakers in any condition will be considered.
