It doesn't take much shopping around to make the discovery that most vintage stereo receivers these days look pretty much alike, with the tuning dials dominating the frontface, with knobs and controls often adding to the clutter. So her comes the Pioneer SX-D5000 making a major new contribution to the aesthetics of 80s era receiver design. A total break from the concept of traditional receivers. The SX-D5000 is totally redesigned. All controls (sans Volume and Balance) switches are sliders and pushbuttons, not levers, rockers or rotary knobs. Indications are all digital, even the one for tuned frequency. You don't have to be a stereo expert to see how these lines and contours add up to a distinctive kind of elegance. To see how the SX-D5000 gives the appearance of a precision transceiver, with all controls neatly grouped into three.
Visually attractive, functional, operationally comfortable - a rare combination of design qualities in a receiver. Would you expect less from Pioneer?
The SX-D5000 is what receivers should be like in the 1980s. Once again, this Pioneer makes strong impression.
Power Amp Highlights:
Continuous Power Output is 80 watts per channel, min. At 8 ohms from 20 to 20,000 hertz with no more than 0,005% total harmonic distortion.
Heat Sink - is the "I-Skived" type, which uses thinly-sliced metal fins on a lightweight but solid frame to provide as much as 50% better heat dissipation than in conventional types.
Protection Circuitry - has gold-plated dual-contact relays for fast response and unfailing dependability should power-related mishaps occur. The receiver and your speakers are fully protected; the circuitry mutes power on/off noise, protects power transistors and speakers from abnormal direct-current potentials and overload at the output.
So this "better" 80s style gear is making a strong comeback. Performance is straight up Pioneer and the vibe is decidedly 80s cool -
think Pet Shop Boys, The Smiths, U2 and Madonna. This piece is in terrific condition with just one small stain keeping it from being perfect. Has, like all our components, been brought back to spec by our expert in house tech staff. Super cool in every way.
