Pioneer SA-8800

Integrated Stereo Amplifier (1980-1981)

Pioneer SA-8800

Description

The SA-8800 has the impressive feature which is the NSA (non switching amplifier), created specially by Pioneer.

This is a type of amplifier that adopts the merits of both class A and class B amplifiers, and it excels in keeping down the heat loss and allows the transistors to operate all the time in the active region.

For this reason, a high output power with a very low distortion factor is yielded all the way up to the high frequencies.

We were given one of these units by a good friend of the family over 10 years ago. This amplifier is one of my favourite. Lots of Head Room to power a set of 15 inch speakers. You can throw anything at this amp and it never distorts due to its high wattage power suplly. When play HI fidelity it reproduces a warm sound unlike some others which are harsh on the same set of speakers. and its built like a work of art. You pick this amp up and you know its made for quality and power.

UN SALUDO MUY GRANDE

Pioneer SA8800

A recent power surge from a lightening strike took out the .25in dia x 1.125in Long, 800mA fuses in my SA8800. The Pioneer PN is AEK-111.

They have been difficult to track down. Does anyone have a few laying around they would like to sell me or better yet know of a supplier.

Thanks

fuse

I see no problem using a .25in x 1.125in 1 amp fuse which are sold at electronic supply stores
