AM/FM Stereo Receiver (1972-74)
The SX-828 is a big power AM/FM stereo receiver with advanced circuit design, outstanding FM selectivity and sensitivity, and linear scale tuning dial.
Here, in one of Pioneer's most prized packages, is a wealth of outstanding performance in an AM/FM solid state stereo receiver.
The SX-828 is another in the long, proud line of advanced stereo components from Pioneer - and certainly one of the best.
For music power that will fill any-sized room with clear, rich sound, the SX-828 features up to 270 watts (at 4 ohms).
For FM selectivity and sensitivity that has no peer in a unit of this size, the unit features a large linear scale tuning dial, the latest solid state circuitry, and a pair of FM tuning meters.
And, finally, for the supreme versatility that is so necessary to quality hi-fi today, it provides two tape monitor circuits for tape-to-tape duplication, and lets you use up to two turntables, three sets of speaker systems, two microphones and even too sets of headphones.
All in one handsomely-designed, ruggedly built unit from the quality stereo people at Pioneer.

A very handsome and powerfull unit. Super build quality all round and am very proud of the one I own. Pity they dont make them anymore but to all vintage Hi Fi fans if you get one in good working condition snap it up.
