How can 30-year-old receivers sound better than new ones?

Since no one listens before they buy, selling today's receivers is a numbers game, and sound quality takes a back seat.

The story is too old to be commented.

because its cheaper to mass produce. older recievers are also very heavy which costs more to ship.

I have an old Marantz receiver which I got at a garage sale for $50, that plays music way better than my 8802A.
