The TX-D1000 is to the PL 5100 as the PL-L1000 is the same as the PL 5000 TT.
It's not a particularly ambitious tuner though.
No IF Bandwidth adjustment and the sensitivity and S/N just aren't anything to write home about. It may have been an evolutionary offshoot of the tuners that were included in Syscom type pre-packaged systems. If so, then it's more of a close relation to the TX-608 and TX-540 type tuners. Fluoroscan blue, but not necessarily Fluoroscan good. I'd own one to complete a collection maybe, but not at some of the prices I see. If a Carver TX-2 sells for x then I wouldn't pay more than x or x- for a TX-D1000. But sometimes it's not about performance. I'd just be careful not to overpay. Especially if you take a look at what F-9's, F-91's and F-99's, etc., go for. some of those aren't quite as pretty but they're solid performers. YMMV.....to each their own!

Oddly enough, this may be a direct correlation to Pioneer's acquisition of Phase Linear and the marketing of the Phase Linear 5100 II. I'm researching the PL unit and attempting to find suitable replacement parts (now obsolete)...and the TX-D1000 looks remarkably similar on the outside...now looking at the inside to determine cross-compatibility.
