What do you consider expensive? Is $10 to much for custom set? And thanks a ton. I never would have figured out what they were called on my own.

Now can someone tell me the benefit of pairing the sx-980 and SA-8100 together? Is that even an option??


Thanks,

I'd say no benefit unless the amp or pre-amp of one or the other was broken and you didn't want to fix it. 

That function is really designed to mate either with either i) a power amp that has no pre-amp or ii) a pre-amp with no power amp.

Not really for mating a receiver and integrated as that is redundant...(unless something is broken)

Found an sx1280 not 10 minutes from my house!! It's a 9 cosmetically but needs some work electrically. I plan to do a full resto on this one and call it end game for sure. 

 

If anyone has an x80 series knob for sale, send me a pm. Pics coming up.

Ok, so say the one that isn't functioning properly is the SA-8100. It works and its stupid (insane amount of force out of the headphone out)  powerful but it has a lot of static and likes to cut out a lot. Would there be any reason to attach it to the receiver?? I'm thinking no. Bass is stronger stock from the SA-8100 and sound is a bit warmer and I feel like I'm just scratching the service with it. Its sounds amazing once things stop scratching and cutting out. Still looks great on the outside as well so it may just need a bit of TLC to really sing. 

 

All in all I'm very happy about the purchase. 

 

 

 

Thanks,

I've bought DeOxit at Radio Shack in the past, don't remember what I paid for it though.

post #10799 of 13717

It's the same money for 1/5 the amount at RS compared to amazon. :blink:
