  1. NEXT TO THE PIONEER SX 1010 THE 1250 IS NOT AS WARM BUT HANDS DOWN BETTER SOUNDING THEN MODELS AFTER THE 1250.THE SX 1250 IS A GREAT RECEIVER YOU CAN GET MORE POWER FROM OTHER RECEIVERS BUT AFTER ALL ITS ABOUT SOUND QUALITY SO CONSIDER THE SX 1250 ONE NOTCH ABOVE IS THE SX 1010 .

  2. I own some of the best sounding pioneers to my ear the sx-850 sx -1010 and last but not least the sx-1250 and I have to say the warm clear sound of these I love the sound but there is no pioneer other than the sx- 1980 can match the power of the 1250 it has all you want and more. from low to high volumes . so if you want one. you better make sure you have the speakers to back it up. I am running 4 hpm-100s on it and I cant get past half volume . in fear of blowing them . but the sound remains true and clear. not like most that fall off at higher volumes. with 4 22000uf caps . it has the power to back it up. trust me I am a believer .
