Vintage 1970’s Pioneer SX-980 Classic Home Stereo Receiver, 80 watts

Here we have a late 1970’s classic receiver. It is the Pioneer SX-980 and was produced from the 1978-1979 and was the last of the 900 series receivers from Pioneer. The SX-980 is basically a slightly restyled SX-950. You will notice that the meter faces are black instead of white to improve the legibility of the analog meters. The SX-980 is rated at 80 watts per channel into 8 ohms. As a comparison the SX-950 was rated at 85 WPC. While the sound difference between the 980 and the 950 may not be very noticeable to most listeners, the build quality of the two units is different.

The SX-980 features bass and treble controls with turnover switches from 200hz and 400hz bass, 5k and 25k treble, tone on/off, filter switches for 15hz and 8khz, FM muting, two tape in/outputs, duplicate switch, two phono inputs and one aux input, phono two selector is also the mic selector, mono and stereo mode, loudness on/off, mic input and muting switch, both signal and tuning meters, as well as both right and left channel output meters which display wattage.

The Pioneer SX-980 is an AM/FM stereo receiver with constant current loaded 2-stage differential amplifier, and direct coupled 2-stage Darlington single push-pull DC configuration power amplifier.

Features include Pioneer turnover tone controls, 6dB-octave high and low filters and outputs for 2 pairs of speakers.

This is a previously owned receiver and we are not the original owners of it, so we do not know its history. This item is currently hooked up to speakers to show it functions and sounds great. There are minimal scratches on this item for its age. All input/outputs work and function properly. This item is in great working condition.
