Nov 8 - sold the tuner. Amp only now.
Nice looking piece.
Good value for 120 watt amp.
Circa 1983 - Some folks consider it a rare amp - could be.
Note - there is another Pioneer A-70 that comes up when googling about - much more expensive than this one, also silver, but different knobs and stuff.
- well built amp with some weight to it - not like the later stuff that claim high power (100 watts plus ) but have no weight to them
- cosmetics good - strong 7.5 out of 10 for condition, as compared to a few other unrestored sets. Some minor scratches at bottom on faceplate. Not cleaned up for these photos.
- All light seem working including power meter
- Plays loud and clear and sounds quite good - better than the $300 as valued here actually
- no obvious switch or knob scratchiness
- havent yet tested phono stage - supposed to be pretty good - both mm and mc
As with any vintage piece - a service by competent vintage tech is recommended, but is ueasble as is.
Factory box with original foams.
Sound? Good for the money. Very useable. Not sure its as good as a couple of my $500 amps - but maybe. Probably not as good as a strong Sansui Au-717/719, and def not as good as my $1500 and up stuff - surprised?
Price? Fair I would say - an amp on Feebay recently for $499 Australian - which is v close to Canadian $ in value at moment.
Option of Interest - $200 additional for a set of Pioneer S-710 speakers that this set came with - need woofers refoamed. Stuff came to me with 4 (four) Pioneer S-710 speakers - really nice cosmetics but all need woofer foams. Factory boxes. Will be asking $250 for a pair as is - probably $400-450 if I get them refoamed, depending how good they sound. See my seperate ad on speakers for a bit more detail.
Can ship.Factory box helps.
