This is a beautiful vintage Pioneer SX 300T stereo receiver made in 1969. It has that very nice brushed aluminum face with chrome trim. This receiver was one of the first generation solid state receivers that Pioneer put out. It plays 100% with no problems anywhere. The fm tuning is fantastic. With a small piece of wire hooked up to the fm antenna terminal I was able to pick up many stations and they were all locked in without fading. One of the small am terminal screws is missing and the bracket for the internal am antenna bar is bent. Neither is a big problem. There are 2 lights that are out, one is the stereo indicator lamp and the other is the tuning meter lamp. All the knobs move with ease and the tuning dial moves smoothly back and forth without any snags. The only drawback to this receiver is that the speaker connections require special plugs, but I was able to strip the ends of the wires folding the ends and inserting them into the slots. They hold in place really well and will not come out unless you slightly tug on them. The output on this is 12 watts per channel, but it sounds more powerful. I have this hooked up to a pair of the KLH speakers I have listed and it sounds awesome. There is something about the sound these older Pioneer receivers put out that the other receivers can't match. Every vintage Pioneer receiver I have owned had that sound. It's like a vintage tube sound and the KLH speakers really compliment it. If you are just starting out putting a vintage hi-fi system together, then this is a good starting point. The shipping cost reflects shipping to the west coast. If shipping is less to your residence then the difference will be refunded.
