I have own this for quite a while now. Power, reliability and smoothness and massive heat sinks, I can only add (a) Bravo to Pioneer Electronic geniuses (b) I wish to go back to the products of the past that is pure unadulterated and organic music (not Synthesized)

I'm a proud owner of a SX-1280, one of the best receivers ever made along with the SX-1250 and I have one of those also. I also have an SX-980 as well. These are truly works of electronic art from the late 70's. They really don't make them like this anymore unless you are spending mega-bucks. If you can find one of these don't hesitate to grab it, awesome piece of Pioneer high end

Outstanding well built example of Pioneer's best! With plenty of headroom power to spare - a very user-friendly and intuitive design that is timeless. Very proud to be an owner of one of these - and plan to keep it for a very long time. If you find one in decent to excellent condition - BUY IT!
