Pioneer SX-1280



pioneer-sx-1280


The Pioneer SX-1280 is one of Pioneer's classic receivers. It came out in 1978 and took over for the SX-1250. The design and styling are beautiful. It is rated at 185 watts per channel which is second only the the monster SX-1980's power output. MSRP was around $900.00 which was a decent chunk of change in 1978 and rose to $950.00 in 1979 which was the last year of production for the 1200 series receivers. You'll notice that the Pioneer SX-1280 has black vu meter faces with white lettering while the SX-1250 had white meter faces and black lettering. Just one of the subtle differences between the two receivers.

A few features:

  • Total harmonic distortion  .o1%
  • Weight: 63.25 pounds
  • Power output: 185 wpc in to 8 ohms

 

SX-1280's are very collectible and prices reflect that fact. A parts or repair unit can run upwards of $500.00. In good working condition they routinely sell for around $1000.00. In mint working condition I've seen them reach $1400.00. So, if you're looking for one of these receivers be prepared to shell out some cash.

$1000 to $1900 depending on condition. That’s what has SOLD on eBay in the U.S. recently. Not sure about Portugal.
