This distinctive package of plenty includes up-to-the-minute circuitry throughout its handsome construction, and then gives plenty of power to boot: continuous power output of 85 watts per channel min RMS at 8 ohms, from 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz with no more than 0.1% total harmonic distortion.
But big power is only one important attribute of this new receiver - you also get an FM front end that performs with outstanding stability and sensitivity, thanks to the use of a pair of dual gate MOS FETs in its RF amplifier and mixer, an advanced FM IF section that includes three 2-element ceramic filters and a large scale integrated circuit, plus a multiplex section for FM stereo broadcasts that uses the innovative and advanced phase-locked loop IC for excellent separation characteristics.
The result is a flawless kind of sound that is unmatched in tonal quality by any comparably-priced receiver now on the market, plus the radiant good looks of Pioneer design and human engineering. The SX-950 by Pioneer: Something extra everywhere.
