You don't get a mess of white noise through the sx-850 HP out?

post #6107 of 13886

My SX-1080 finally arrived.  The switches had some static in them but I cleaned them out with some DeOxit and Pro Gold 5.  Now it sounds nice and clean with no noise or static.  I tried to put it in one of my system racks but it was too wide.  Most components are 17" or 19" but this thing is like 21" wide so I had to put it on the top shelf for now.  

 

 

 

The case is in real good condition.  I rubbed it down with Pledge Revitalizing oil to bring back it's color and shine back.  I think this is the last receiver that I will be getting for while.

Nice unit there!!

Yeah, I think that one will hold you for awhile.  rolleyes.gif

 

I had the same problem with the width of my receivers.  I'm having to put two receivers stacked on the top shelf of my rack.  I wish I had done a little more research and held off on buying my current rack as I don't really like the stacking option.

It definitely makes me want to make a move on the SX-1250 I just found...I'll have to find the link.

Very nice 1080!!!   Congrats.

Hi, anyone can advise if a Sansui AU-317 is a good buy? Read some good things on the Sansui AU-x17 series but am wondering how the sound signature is. Am actually planning to use it to pair with my HE-6. Yay or nay?

Lee that 1080 is a beauty, congrats. I'm sure it sounds great, too. I bought a 980 for my brother and I know it sounds great, and of course I love my 1280 and 1980. So I am certain the 1080 is winner!!

That is one BEAUTIFUL 1080!

Congrats!

Is anyone else using Pledge on their vintage components?  I'd sure like to find something to use that would make 'em that pretty.

Hey Skylab, got a question about that.  iknow its slightly off topic but this is my fav thread for info on all things vintage.

I found a pair of very very near mint Klipsch Chorus the other day.  I didn't hesitate to grab them for the 200$.

BUT

they look like they've never been treated or anything.  just dusted occasionally.

 

I have some Howard's, can i use this on them?  or should i just leave em as they are?

will the Howard's do any permanent damage to the wood veneer?

If you can get that SX-1250 for a good price you should move on it!

Thank you for the complements Guys!  I have used the Pledge Revitalizing oil on other wood furniture around the house with good results.  I thought I would give it try on this one's case.  It soaked up the oil and was touchable about an hour later.  It did put a nice shine on the finish.  I hooked it up last night and will leave it powered on though out the weekend to see how it sounds on Monday.  The Marantz and SX-780 really warmed up sound wise after 3 days of being powered on.

Is it real wood veneer? If so, Howard's Feed'n'Wax will for sure not hurt it, it will actually help protect the finish!
