$420 · CLASSIC PIONEER SX-880 STEREO RECEIVER AMP AMPLIFIER *BEAUTY*

WORKS AND SOUNDS GREAT, WILL BE PLAYED FOR YOU

All output transistors are original blu'n'black NEC
It's not mint, but is very clean in and out.

Extensive 5-hrs maintenance service was done in March 2016 to assure proper performance/sound quality, including that of service bulletins:
Cleaned and detailed, all controls, switches and connectors deoxidized and lubed, tuner bearings lubed, new relay installed, cold solder joints re-flowed with fresh solder, lamps replaced, as needed, extra heatsinks for power supply transistors installed, DC offset trimpots upgraded to premium multi-turn type, DC offset adjusted to below 8mV L/R, bias voltages adjusted to 31 mV L/R, output meters calibrated.

Pioneer SX-780 is considered the best-selling receiver of all times. SX-880 is even better, bigger, has more power and uses excellent discrete output transistor as opposed to Darlington IC packs of SX-780. The circuit topology is similar to SX-780, with some improvements, including use of extra FET transistors for premium sweetness.
The sound quality is finest of vintage Pioneer, clear, transparent and warm, very musical. While overall build quality is not quite as good as that of SX-828 and SX-850, the sound is superior. SX-880 also looks exceptionally classy and is far harder to find.
