This is very hard to find
Even harder to find in this condition.
Better than Pioneer SX-1050 and a big step over Luxman R-1050 both in terms of sound and build quality (I owned all of these machines)

IN NEAR MINT FULLY SERVICED CONDITION.
TOP OF THE LINE WHEN RELEASED IN 1976.

LIST PRICE: $750 US dollars (and much higher in loonies)
THE MOST RELIABLE AND THE BEST SOUNDING OF 70'S LUXMAN SOLID STATE RECEIVERS.

There was a model R-1120 manufactured later, but those tend to have reliability issues (power amp/protection circut) and have a slightly "synthetic" sound coloration to them.

R-1070 comes with excellent tuner section and outstanding phono stage.

* 75 WPC RMS
* 0.08 THD
* Exceptionally nice smooth warm sound
* Mint condition except for AM antenna holder - I had to replace that -
original owner pushed receiver too deep into the shelf, and plastic holder was cracked, so I had to come up with replacement. Naturally, this does not affect the AM performance.
* All circuits are original - never repaired

* Speakers A,B: On/Off
* Headphones out
* Main in / Pre Out
* Phono 1, Phono 2, Aux, Tape 1, Tape 2, Tape DIN, AM, FM
* Tape monitoring 1-2, 2-1
* Volume L/R, bass, treble
* IF narrow, FM mute, Dolby FM switch
* Peak indicator - 12 dB
* Filters; loudness
* Antenna 300 Ohm or 75 Ohm
* Switched/Unswitched power connectors
* Features 3-stage circuit overload and fuse protection
* 19" x 15" x 6 1/2", over 35 lbs
* Gorgeous Rosewood finish

Serviced as following:
* Cleaned in and out
* All controls de-oxed
* Lamps replaced where needed
* Stressed solder joints re-soldered
* Power amplifier adjusted to specs

WORKS PERFECTLY

On February 18, 2009 one of R-1070's sold on ebay USA for 257 USD = 328 CAD
(auction # 140300990028);
add shipping / customs/brokerage fees /taxes to this and you will see how much it's really worth.

ONE OF THE NICEST RECEIVERS I EVER HAD IN MY COLLECTION.
