For similar price, if it was my $, I would procure the SIMA PW300. Better Amp, Preamp, and phono section. But that's just me and I understand that I'm not responding to that actual Op question.

Great advice , I will be able to auditioning both. I didn't even think about setting aside a "after" purchase budget.
I believe the Sansui has been recently serviced but I will get the details and ask on both. Thank you!
Technically, the Sansui is a bit better.
But it really comes down on the servicing since both are really old units.

I would ask to see inside both. Newer parts are easy to see.

Depends on the mileage;
Exterior condition may or may not reflect the actual mileage.
11 is better, provided mileage is the same.

My son is still using my Sansui 7070 that I bought way back circa 1977? It has never been serviced and still sounds great, although I'm sure some parts probably need replacing by now.

Going to audition the Pioneer sx939 tomorrow. Unfortunately the Sansui guy was a clown saying before I went that he'd demo them but his speakers were to big to be powered properly. Also caught him lying about that it was his main when he recently rescued it from a basement,just all kinds of nonsense from him. The Pioneer guys seems nice and passionate about gear in general and has a good vibe overall. I'll let you guys know how it goes!
