post #8011 of 13885

Sorry,to interrupt but as mentioned before somewhere,I have ditched my Phoenix immediately after hearing this Pioneer SX1010.

Right now,. I still have the Audio GD NFB 17.32 DAC but should get a Havana NOS DAC by the end of the week and then I might sell the Audio GD DAC.....quite likely,actually!

The Pioneer is used as headphone amp and phono stage ONLY.

The turntable is Lenco L833DD.

SX-1010 is the original monster receiver. I had one for a while and thought it sounded great!

Got some LCD-3 today. Listening on the SX1010. So far so good!!!

 

Photos don't usually do the SX1010 justice. This receiver looks so beautiful and impressive in person. Silversurfers photo does a very good job capturing this monster.

How is the amplifier with the HD800?  I've heard the HD800 through the SX-780 and it was very enriching.

Had the HD800 with a WA6 and also balanced with a Phoenix but the headphone out on the SX1010 is on a different level.There's lot's of meat and bass,not to mention the holographic soundstage.

Could any burn-in session improve the sound (make it warm)?

 

I didn't replace any caps in the NAD 3020.  Just cleaned all the controls and RCA jacks and vacuumed the dust bunnies out of it.  Also refinished the walnut end pieces.

 

With respect to the SX-636, it was unlistenable before I recapped it and installed a bunch of new transistors.  There are three types of failure prone transistors in a 636 and one of more of them had failed.  It squealed/screeched very loudly every time I turned it on.  I am the original owner, but it had been so long since hearing it work correctly, can't comment on whether the recap made it darker or brighter.

I've seen it and it is BEAUTIFUL.

Funny, as if in a dream, I woke up this morning, and here it was!!!

At $9,000, though, I'm not sure I'm in.
