Steve,

I forgot about the S10. They are very nice and I think the S10 series is highly collectible too. But in the U.S, there are quite often found and less valuable or collectible than the 3000 series, IMO.

I would keep it if there is space to store it. They are also getting rarer these days. Just be a little careful if you are planning to use them after storing them for years. Use a Variac to bring them up slowly since the old electrolytic capacitors could fail after sudden powering up after years of storage.

About 3 years ago, I was offered a very nice S10 stack (amp, pre and cdp) for a very reasonable cost and I didn't take it. I still want to kick my back for passing up the chance. It might be why I forgot to mention it in the first place. lol

Disclosure: I am a Denon addict just as much as with any other audio brand.

Here is my POA 1500 that has the black face and the beautiful mahogany like wood finish.
Im debating weather to sell it or keep it as I don't have any use for it.

Beautiful amp! I think you should keep it and keep as stock -- it's price will hold.

I think that was almost a trademarked face, since Yamaha (B2), Sony (TA-N77ES),
Onkyo (M504), Technics (SE-A70) had very similar fronts with huge meters.
Those were the days...

Disclosure: I'm a sucker for the meters.

Mike, I have one just like yours. I replaced all of the lights about 6 months ago and it just sits in my closet looking for an application. I think I might us it along with an old Tandberg preamp I have in my Tahoe house. It really is handsome and I have some great memories watching the meters bounce to some great tunes back in the day....

Oh yes, it would be great if you can put into use again. I'm think I will do the same thing and use mine again. I'm not sure where I will put it bu I have an idea. What speakers are you using?

I have a pair of B&W 602 speakers that I will use in that room. Back in the day I used the Denon to drive my JBL 4343 speakers. That was a rocking set up in the day!

I own the POA 1500, PRA 1000 & DCD 1500; purchased new in 1985 along with my Infinity RS1B speakers. I had to step up & spend over $180,000 to find a qualified replacement w/new MAC gear & Genesis 2.2jr's. My point... let's not look down on good vintage gear.
