I had a very nice but not recapped SX-1250. I thought it sounded slightly better than an unrestored SX-1980. But the fully recapped and restored SX-1980 was a revelation, and so I stuck with it. At the time I also had a fully restored ' recapped Sansui 9090 and Marantz 2285, and I preferred the sound of the 1980 over both of those, so I sold them. But they were both excellent in their own right.
