This is bliss. No recaps no parts replaced. As good a monster receiver as Pioneer made - just awkwardly beautiful. Musical, quiet background, dynamic range is sufficient, sweet sound, versitile, my favorite receiver.

Bought as NOS 2017 in Canada. This is a first rate item from Pioneer and maybe the first digital front end with analog everything else. Sounds great and I guess I will leave it to one of my kids when I go... Also have Pioneer Reel to Reel Tapes, RT-707 RT-909 I truly think Pioneer was the best back in the Day.

These are one of Pioneer's most underappreciated monster receivers. The SX-D7000 came out in 1980 at the peak of monster amp/receiver development and just as the digital age of audio was starting. The result is a receiver with all the old-school power of the late 1970s and several new features that we have come to expect in top rated modern audion receivers such as quartz-lock FM tuning, station presets. It even has a switch for using with moving coil cartridges which had just been introduced. Lots to love in features and performance including incredibly low Total Harmonic Distortion of 0.005%! The one downside for many may be the design. This more space age silver front with digital readouts, backlit selector buttons, softtouch and slider controls probably doesn't appeal to many vintage afficianados used to the look of the classic 1970s SX series. I kind of like the retro Star Trek look myself.

re: SX-D7000

I picked up my SX-D7000 about a year ago. Paid $25 for it at the Salvation Army store. Didn't have high hopes for it, but it light right up and has been banging away ever since. I'm a big SX series fan, but this receiver tops them all for sound quality/features/performance. I didn't think I'd find a receiver that could please me more than my SX-980, but here it is. Nonetheless, my 980 isn't going anywhere!

Same unit more or less as the SX- 3900...
