Pioneer SX-6000


Pioneer's Model SX-6000 puts together in one attractive package everything the Hi-Fi enthusiast would ever ask of a stereo receiver: power, FM sensitivity and selectivity, the versatility to handle multiple speaker systems or tape units, and advanced circuitry for low-noise music output and long-life stability and performance.

The basic performance specifications speak highly for themselves - and go a long way to show why this receiver is one of the finest ever made for its price.

You get peak music power output of 200 watts at 4 ohms (IHF), or 54 watts of continuous power per channel driven at 8 ohms.

You'll pull in even far-off fringe FM stations with the FET front-end and FM sensitivity that is rated at an exceptional 1.8 uV.

And you'll be able to handle up to three different speaker systems, a pair of tape decks, even two different turntables with this highly-advanced Pioneer unit.

No matter how you like your stereo, no matter how much you want from a receiver, the SX-6000 is going to make all the difference in the world for good music listening. Just listen.

re: SX-6000

I have owned a Pioneer SX-727, Sansui 5050 and Pioneer SX-737 and of all of these this is the best of the bunch. It has much better FM and AM signal reception than all previously mentioned receivers, from the same location with the same external FM antenna and built in AM antenna. It is also very musical through vintage AR and Advent speakers, it fills our small listening room with driving bass that pressurizes the room. I think the secret to this receiver is its damping factor 65 compared to 40 for the rest and frequency response 5Hz to 100Hz. The music is right there in the room, and the deep blue face plate on a black front makes Marantz blue kind of pastel, music and mood, you'll have to supply the rest.
