You get both power and clarity from this SX-950. If you haven't heard a big Pioneer before, now's your chance. It is big and heavy and is a real treat to listen to. This model was sold from 1976-1978. The case is real walnut veneer. The power supply and protection circuits, commonly an issue by virtue of undersized transistors, have been fully rebuilt and upgraded with new audio grade components. Signs of age here and there, a couple imperfections - a small mark on the front face, and veneer wear on the lower back edge on one side, please see the pictures for detail.
This is located in the SF Bay North Bay area, zip code 94945. I would prefer to sell local to the bay area and not to ship. However, if you are interested in shipping, please send me a message.
From Pioneer's marketing materials:
High power and extraordinary FM sensitivity in an advanced circuitry AM/FM receiver.
How much AM/FM receiver can you get for a pleasantly modest investment? Try the Pioneer SX-950 on for size.
This distinctive package of plenty includes up-to-the-minute circuitry throughout its handsome construction, and then gives plenty of power to boot: continuous power output of 85 watts per channel min RMS at 8 ohms, from 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz with no more than 0.1% total harmonic distortion.
But big power is only one important attribute of this new receiver - you also get an FM front end that performs with outstanding stability and sensitivity, thanks to the use of a pair of dual gate MOS FETs in its RF amplifier and mixer, an advanced FM IF section that includes three 2-element ceramic filters and a large scale integrated circuit, plus a multiplex section for FM stereo broadcasts that uses the innovative and advanced phase-locked loop IC for excellent separation characteristics.
The result is a flawless kind of sound that is unmatched in tonal quality by any comparably-priced receiver now on the market, plus the radiant good looks of Pioneer design and human engineering. The SX-950 by Pioneer: Something extra everywhere.
