Also have a vintage 1978 Pioneer SX-450 in excellent 8/10 condition @ $140.00

The Pioneer SX-450 is a 15 watt FM/MW stereo receiver featuring FM muting, tape monitor switch and provision for 2 pairs of speakers.

The unit employs a direct-coupled OCL circuit in the power amplifier with a first-stage differential amplifier.

High FM sensitivity is ensured by a low noise FET in the front end with a frequency linear 3-gang variable capacitor.

Specifications:
Tuning range: FM, MW
Power output: 15 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo)
Frequency response: 20Hz to 60kHz
Total harmonic distortion: 0.5%
Damping factor: 25
Input sensitivity: 7.5mV (mic), 2.5mV (MM), 150mV (line)
Signal to noise ratio: 70dB (MM), 90dB (line)
Output: 150mV (line), 30mV (DIN)
Speaker load impedance: 4Ω (minimum)
Semiconductors: 1 x FET, 3 x IC, 28 x transistors, 15 x diodes
Dimensions: 448 x 141 x 307mm
Weight: 8.6kg
Accessories: FM T-type antenna
Year: 1976

The smallest receiver in the Pioneer lineup during the mid to late 70's was the Pioneer SX-450. These entry level receivers were only rated at 15 watts per channel but were still built with quality materials and craftsmanship. Sure, there were fewer features then the bigger receivers had and vinyl veneer instead of wood but the SX-450 is still a good receiver for a second system or garage stereo. It will hold its own in a smaller room but tends to lack the power for a larger room.
Made from about 1977 until 1979 the SX-450 retailed for just under $200.00 and, as you can see, it has the usual late 70's look that personified the Pioneer receivers of the time with the silver face, beveled knobs and "wood" case. Inside it has the usual great Pioneer build quality. It is small so it only has 40 capacitors and 8 lamps.
The Pioneer SX-450 also had the following features:

FM muting
Tape monitor switch
2 pairs of speaker outputs
Direct-coupled OCL circuit in the power amplifier
High FM sensitivity
Low noise FET in the front end
Frequency linear 3-gang variable capacitor
Total harmonic distortion: 0.5%
Frequency response: 20Hz to 60kHz
Dimensions: 17.7 x 5.5 x 12 inch
Weight: 19 pounds
Separate bass and treble controls
Tuning Meter
Tape input/output
Loudness switch
Headphone Jack
Phono and Aux inputs

The Pioneer SX-450 isn't something that audio collectors are going to fight over but they still have a market. Anyone interested in vintage audio on a budget would be wise to try one of these receivers before spending a large amount of money on a more expensive unit. They are also great for someone learning to restore older audio components as these are fairly simple and easy to work on. Needless to say these units do sell well.

Right now on Ebay:
Pioneer Vintage Stereo Receiver SX 450 In Working Condition $169.00
PIONEER SX 450 VINTAGE STEREO RECEIVER $149.00

ATTENTION all CAM member tube shoppers...
Finding the right tube for your amp/pre amp,you will find that there will be a lot of different opinions ....
Many times all the answers are right.
The complications can be is some tubes can be very system dependent so it will depend on your system as to which tubes sound the best.
We all desire quiet nice sounding tubes.
Why are some tubes noisier then others,or quieter in certain amps and not in others?
Audio tubes need to settle in and then will get better once burned in.
Definitely buy from a reputable dealers!
If you're going to be into tubes, its always beneficial to develop a relationship with dealers you can trust.
If you want to find the best sounding tube for your system and don't mind spending $$, then buy several brands/types and listen for yourself.
Each brand tends to feature characteristics that may appeal to you and match well with your unit, others not so much so there really isn't one 'best-sounding' tube out there as its very dependent on the application.
Also, while these super rare and uber-expensive tubes do sound great, they're best implementation is in sensitive pre amps and phono stages Remember, a good portion of their cost can be attributed to their scarcity, not just their sonics.
They really don't stand out in the usual amplifier's driver stage and in most other gear, a similar but substantially more common NOS tube of the same manufacturer will provide all but maybe the last 1% of the sonics of the super tubes at a much lower price.
Although improving, still many of the new tubes made today in Europe, China and Russia only reproduce random varied harmonics.
This can be why most of us upgrades to a vintage made tube made decades ago when these rare inner earth metals were available in the inside construction of the vintage tube.
These metals have become too expensive to use and today’s tube makers have found cheaper substitutes which seem to work but do not reproduce all the nuances and textures in music! ...
These 5963 tubes are usually very well matched (triode to triode) and noise-free.
Try them, you may like the results.
The highly recommended 5963 variant of 12AU7 tubes is an outstanding audiophile tube!
Try them in your amp/pre amps/headphone amps!!!
You will be impressed enough to buy another as a spare, and most likely not expect to continue searching for anything better.
Now is my favorite tube in my 12AU7-based collection of variant tubes!
It exemplifies "truth in timbre" and is very clean, sweet (but not artificially so), and neutral.
Inner voices and hall acoustics are easy to hear!
Just wait until you listen to all the types of 5963's.
It's another 12AU7A variant.
The 5963 IS A MEDIUM-MU TWIN TRIODE. 9—PIN MINIATURE TYPE
A variant of the 12AU7 family of tubes
Very little is written about these 5963 tubes.
It's practically today unknown, yet these are excellent fantastic replacements for 12AU7 tubes!
Smooth and sweet,yet bargain priced compared with many European brands!
Very smooth tube from top to bottom with no weakness!
These are a nice industrial/military upgrade variant type which is nearly identical to the standard 12AU7.
RCA made a nice black plate version of this tube
The 1950’s RCA 5963 sounds more dynamic than the standard 12AU7 Blackplate
It’s also a very good low-noise tube.
The plate voltage rating is a little lower than for a 12AU7, but for most applications, it will work fine.
It has a rugged cathode and should be quite long lived, similar to the 5814.
That specially-designed cathode is said to withstand long periods of time in cut-off without damaging the tube (cathode poisoning).
This made them a great choice for NORAD computers, which led to a good supply of them on the USA West Coast.
Use them and you will marvel at the quality and value.
They are dead-silent and seem to have an unusually long lifespan.
Very satisfied with the sound they produce.
I prefer it to Mullard 12AU7, Sylvania 5814A,and of course the stock modern 12AU7's.
A truly fine 12AU7 variant from the 1950's, many tube audiophiles feel these can outperform most other NOS 12AU7 tubes!
In computer (and some other) service, tubes were quite often operated as switches, biased to cutoff (no plate current) for long periods of time and then turned on, while always the heater and cathode were warmed up and ready to go.
In ordinary tubes, this leads to a condition known as "cathode interface resistance" or "sleeping sickness."
The cathode interface is a layer of metal, usually nickel, between the cathode sleeve and the oxide coating that emits electrons. In ordinary tubes, under conditions of long-duration tube cutoff, it generates a growing resistance until at last the cathode "goes to sleep."
Computer tube cathodes were specially treated to survive those long periods of cutoff without developing cathode interface resistance

The 5963 tube is a nice industrial type which is nearly identical to the standard 12AU7.
G.E. ,RCA and Sylvania made very nice versions of this tube!
The plate voltage rating is just a little lower than for a 12AU7, but for most applications, it will work fine.
It has a rugged cathode and should be long lived, similar to the 5814.
Watch this tube, as it is plentiful now and prices are low.

The 12AU7 is a miniature medium-mu twin triode.
This tube finds use as a phase-inverter/splitter in push-pull amplifier circuits in ac/dc radio equipment and in many diversified applications such as multivibrators or oscillators in industrial control devices.
The tube is quite pokey and sections can even be connected in parallel to create a power amp with enough current to drive a pair of headphones or even a guitar speaker.
A centre tapped heater permits operation of the tube from a 6.3V or a 12.6V heater supply.
The tube requires a noval nine-contact socket and may be mounted in any position.

DOUBLE TRIODE (separate cathodes)
Heater Voltage 6.3-12 V
Heater Current 300-150 mA
