Yep. 100 old school watts. The pioneers have nicer cases (wood vs. wood-pannel) but otherwise the Toshiba is very similar sounding to my sx-1250. I think I read somewhere that Toshiba used to manufacture the boards for the sx line. But who knows as it was 40 years ago.
Thanks.I had it sitting in the garage for 2 years and got it restored to give it to a friend.But now I don't know?I will keep it at least until I get the Sansui back. 
straight out
Sansui is back in the shop .   So I had to take the Toshiba Sa-7100 out of storage. It's supposed to go to a buddy soon but damn this thing sounds good with the HE-6. Bass is full and super detailed the Shelby Lynne DSD of Just a cup of coffee sounds incredible, I had to listened to the last 20 sec 5 times.  No noticeable difference between the HP out or the taps, other then the volume range?  
I have a completely opposite opinion. IMO the HAP-S1 is a great all in one solution. The built in DAC is top notch, the ability to play any type of file including DSD, the DSEE upscaling, expandable hard drive, internet radio and RCA out make it a great central system. While the internal HP amp does not have enough power for planar headphones It has great synergy with my Magnum builds (Grado's with magnum drivers). I have not heard the TH600 so I can't tell you if they...
If by "solid core" he means single filament wire as opposed to mufti-filament wire then I would agree. Solid core wire is problematic in that it does not flex/bend with movement and in a worse case can damage the driver if it is pulled by detaching the solder pad off of the driver. For Magnums I would recommend using multi-filament.
Still available. Bump
yeah.More is better.But still very much dependent on the receiver.My Sanusi is darker with a deep Soundstage.My pioneer is crisp and wide Soundstage.But both have tone filters to play with.
A bit off topic but does anyone know of a dock for Android phones/tablet with optical out? Or will I need to use an O&G cable and a USB to optical converter?
Rob knows his vintage gear.The 1980 is the pinnacle of pioneer receivers and if you can get a mint version for a fair price, regardless of what speakers/headphones you have, JUMP ON IT!However, I am biased as I own a mint 1250 (restored lovingly by Howard at Audio Specialist in Sherman Oaks). Although I have not heard a 1980 (it is a rare piece as not many were made) the 1250 (160w/ch) is still the best I have heard the HE-6.One caveat with all vintage gear is that it will...
