The smallest receiver in the Pioneer lineup during the mid to late 70's was the Pioneer SX-450. These entry level receivers were only rated at 15 watts per channel but were still built with quality materials and craftsmanship. Sure, there were fewer features then the bigger receivers had and vinyl veneer instead of wood but the SX-450 is still a good receiver for a second system or garage stereo. It will hold its own in a smaller room but tends to lack the power for a larger room.
Made from about 1977 until 1979 the SX-450 retailed for just under $200.00 and, as you can see, it has the usual late 70's look that personified the Pioneer receivers of the time with the silver face, beveled knobs and "wood" case. Inside it has the usual great Pioneer build quality. It is small so it only has 40 capacitors and 8 lamps.
