Looking for the manual for the SX1000TW any info on this model would be appreciated.
I am very familiar with this receiver as it was the first stereo receiver I owned. I also still have a poor, but usable copy of the manual for it that I made back in 1974, as well as a couple SX-1000TD receivers that I won on eBay more recently. The SX-1000TD is nearly identical, but it does have a few internal differences. I have scans of the pages of the poorly copied manual that are currently in 4 very large ZIP files. Let me know if you are interested in getting them, and how you would like them to be sent. Maybe I will try to upload them to this site.
This receiver, when working properly, is a very good receiver. It has a 1.7 uV front end, decent selectivity and a relatively unstable 50 WPC amplifier section. The strange looking, black pill shaped diodes in the power supply section are one of its weak links. I don't think they were rated for high enough current for a 50 WPC amplifier. I have replaced them in both my SX-1000's with 3 Amp, 1000 PIV diodes and never had another problem. They were bad in all three of the SX-1000 receivers that I've owned, when I got them. That is why I suspect that they aren't big enough for the job.
It can be difficult getting parts for that receiver as it is with most vintage stereo gear.
I'm in desperate need of whatever you might have available on this unit. I picked up a basket case and definately schematics and service manual if possible. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is it possible that I could get a copy of that schematic diagram of your, HiFi vintages Pioneer SX-1000TD ?
I highly appreciat it if that's possible.
Thanks a lot.
