Pioneer SX-650

 

One of the classic mid-range receivers offered by Pioneer in the mid 70's was this Pioneer SX-650. As you can see it has the classic silver face styling of Pioneer's 50 series which, when coupled with the wood case, makes for an exceptionally clean and stylish looking receiver.  The SX-650 was produced from 1976-1977 and sold for around $300.00.  The SX-650 puts out 35 watts per channel in to 8 ohms and was designed and marketed for those with an average sized listening room and who wanted good value for their money. The 650 didn't have to many frills but what it did it did well.

The Pioneer SX-650 weighed in at around 29 pounds and its dimensions are: 19 x 6 x 14.5 inches.  For those with dial lighting issues the standard bulb in the SX-650 was an 8V 300mA globe bulb. Those are a little difficult to find these day so a good substitute is a 10mm  8V  .250A wedge bulb. They can still be fairly easily found and are not too expensive.

The Pioneer SX-650's are not uncommon. They can be found fairly readily so their prices are not too high. This is great for someone just starting out in vintage audio. You can get yourself a good quality receiver for not too much money. On average the SX-650 will sell from about $50.00 to over $100.00 obviously depending upon condition.
