Pioneer SX-880, 70's Greatness
The Pioneer SX-xx80 series came after the SX-xx50. The Pioneer SX-880 is a classic example of that generation of Pioneer receivers and was the last of the 800 series. It premiered around 1978 and retailed for about $425 at the time. The main aesthetic difference between the two series are the dark faced meters with white lettering. This change was made to improve visibility. The SX-880 produces 60 watts per channel with total harmonic distortion at 0.05%. It can handle a speaker impedance of 4 Ohms.
The tuning section utilizes a 3 gang variable capacitor tuner. Other features include:
- Bass and Treble tone controls with tone defeat.
- Low cut filter which cuts out ultra low frequency noise below 15Hz (like low pitch rumble from a turntable)
- Independent left and right power meters
- FM Muting
- Stereo and Mono modes
- Two tape in/outputs
- One phono input
- One Aux input
- Duplicate switch
- Loudness switch
This Pioneer "Silver Faced" is another beauty. It plays wonderfully and has been recently gone through by our expert tech. Has the look, sound and vibe of vintage Pioneer all the way.
Demos are highly encouraged in Lawrence, MA.
$699 (plus applicable sales tax)
Note:we have discounted this unit to $599 due to some peeling of the original vinyl veneer. A great deal for a little compromise!
