Pioneer SX-980 vintage 70's stereo receiver. Features 80 wpc RMS continuous power, original wood casing, AM/FM analog tuner, two tape loops, two moving magnet phono inputs (one is shared with a mic input), two ground jacks, one aux input, 15Hz/6Hz filter, two pairs of speaker jacks, separate bass & treble controls with turnovers for 200Hz/400Hz (bass) and 2.5KHz/5KHz (treble), loudness switch, one pre-out with jumpers, three AC outlets (one switched, two unswitched), power consumption is 260 watts. This unit has one of the best tuners I've ever heard! This receiver has been thoroughly tested and is fully functional, HOWEVER, it does have some obvious issues: The left side speaker B jack is stuck in the "up" position so an inserted speaker wire has difficulty making a good connection, causing some static in that channel (I still have the pin that fell out of it, so perhaps it can be re-inserted and repaired). All the other speaker jacks work fine, though. Another problem is the frequent static in the controls, causing volume dimming and sound drop-out in one of the audio channels. The rear audio inputs are also very finicky with the same symptoms. Adjusting the controls will usually alleviate the problem, but this is definitely a trial-and-error process. When it's finally adjusted to the point where it's working properly this receiver sounds INCREDIBLE!!! If left alone it operates fine, but as soon as you try to turn another knob or throw a switch the same problems pop up again. So it works, but it is VERY temperamental. A good cleaning/servicing would more than likely bring this baby back to fully functional operation. So it's being offered as a fixer-upper. If you're handy with these older units you may even be a able to fix it yourself. This was going to be a project of mine but I never seem to have the time to get around to it. The cosmetic condition is quite good: Glass is clean with no cracks, face is also very clean and shiny, all lamps are working, and there are no missing switches or knobs (some knobs do show a little wear). The wood case does have some discoloration on the top. This is a very powerful and awesome sounding vintage receiver, it's just in need of some cleaning and fine-tuning. This thing is big and heavy (built like a tank!), so do check the shipping price before placing a bid.   >>>>>High bidder agrees to pay within 7 days of auction close with either a cashier’s check or by Paypal. I do not accept personal checks nor do I ship outside the continental US, so please don’t ask me to quote you an overseas price! I also do not end auctions early or offer a But It Now price, so if you’re interested in this auction then you’ll have to place a bid. If you have any questions about this auction or any item within it, don’t hesitate to ask a question. I will respond with a quick and detailed answer. Thanks for checking out my auction and good luck!!!<<<<<
