Given these efficiencies, it seems like the Audeze recommendation of 1-4 watts for optimal power requirement might be a little high(?)

 

If someone would like to get my view, send 'em! :evil:

I am officially kicking myself. There have been two SX series receivers up on the local CL in the last week and I missed both of them. One was a SX-1280 for basically nothing, and the other was a SX-1000TW (AKA the very first SS receiver they ever put out) for also very cheap. To be fair, the SX-1280 was gone after like 10 minutes; a level of craigslisting that is incompatible with almost any sort of job.

Just have to hang out with the old friends for a while then -

Sorry to hear your near misses on CL. I feel that technology is taking over there somewhat. The 1280 is an outstanding receiver for both speakers and hp's. Hate to hear that you missed it.

Lol @ "Fear the Goat" poster. It reminds me of a terrible and awful thing that spread across the net some time ago. I'm not going to specify it...

Haha, it's no biggie. I miss things all the time, but man do I wish I hadn't. I think if I got the 1280, I'd finally put the 1980 out for a full restore at circle stereo.

:D I can testify, a bit of good luck can certainly change your day/night! For about 18 months of closely watching CL, I kept missing things... a lot! And then on a Spring night, an almost uneventful Friday night, after dinner I brought up CL to look a bit. Precisely 2200 hours. 

 

The seller of my G-22000 just posted his AD well under the 5 minutes I began to look at vintage stereo receiver listings... Bang! I never knew:tongue_smile: I could type so fast!!! I'm almost certain the email was littered :rolleyes:with errors. I was the first to contact him and he responded right away - he was actually calling it a night after listing. And he would not return to the store until Monday morning.

 

What's more, he knew the value and rarity of the unit but gave me his word that, while he couldn't put it on lay-a-way, he'd give me first shot! As long as I could make it to town between the morning's open and 1300 hrs. This is because I had to travel out of town but his being closed on the weekend made this easy!

 

I'm still smiling at the luck I had on a single Friday night. :ksc75smile:

Owning both a 1980 and a 1280.....................audio bliss.  Almost like these guys who have multiple Spec systems.............check these out.

^^ wow...:eek:

 

 

Question, I have an offer to trade my sx890 for an sx950 with $50 cash on my part. Both receivers in very good condition.  

 

Thoughts?

There was talk about posting some nighttime shots of our SS vintage...........so I turned on the whole system and turned the lights off. Photos don't do it justice.

I think that is a good trade. I've had more than one person tell me they preferred the sound of the 1050 and 950 to that of the 1250, 1280 and 1980. I love my 950!

I see potential in that shot! Just need to make a few adjustments with the use of your lens. Does your camera have the ability to extend Shutter opening? Got a stand; timer? Great shots await!

There is a conspiracy going on. I mentioned a Marantz 2238 on here and it vanished shortly after. I wont ever say anything regarding craigslist again on here. LOL!
