Pioneer SX-780 Vintage Receiver, Serviced
At 45 watts per channel, the SX-780 might not put out huge numbers, but it delivers excellent sound at a great value. This is the perfect receiver for someone just starting out in vintage audio, as it will pair well with many types of speakers. The large tuner dial, large-faceted aluminum knobs, and lit display convey all of the warmth of traditional silver-faced receivers of the era.
This unit has been serviced by Tom Brander, which includes: tuner calibration, output board and power supply board recap, servicing and testing of tone controls, and cleaning of all dials.
The simulated wood case is a bit rough, but that shouldn't stop the enterprising at-home woodworker from enjoying the task of reveneering this case and returning it to its former glory. Price reflects physical condition.
Demos are encouraged in Lawrence, MA.
