FOR SALE: Sony STR-D1090 Receiver with RM-AV2000 touchscreen remote, in original box w/ factory service manual
Sony STR-D1090 receiver. Made in Japan, from around 1993-1994.
I have had this in storage for the past 10-11 years. I figured someone else might as well use it rather than having it sit here collecting dust. It's been in a non-smoking pet-free kid-free home.
It has an awesome 17-band spectrum analyzer display with parametric EQ. The display is perfect and very bright. The buttons all work perfectly (including the bottom row, which all light up and can change modes to perform different functions - source selection, presets/numbers, or soundfield mode).
The RM-AV2000 touchscreen remote has learning features and is extremely configurable - you can pick what button labels appear on the touchscreen and program new functions into each button. I think it'll do sequences of commands too.
I have the original factory service manuals for both the touchscreen remote and the stereo itself. This is because I inherited them when my company moved into the office of a former Sony service centre that closed down and left thousands of service manuals behind in a giant cabinet. They show the schematics, block diagrams, parts lists, etc. so if you ever have problems you can perhaps fix things yourself.
It will come in the original box. The original instruction manual is included too.
Things to be aware of:
1. When I bought it in 1998, the original RM-U221 remote was missing; I bought another RM-U221 on eBay; it's functional but it turned out to be in rough shape (paint splatters, missing battery door). That's why the RM-AV2000 touchscreen remote is included! It's much better anyway. You will receive both remotes but please be aware of the condition of the RM-U221.
2. The balance knob is missing. If I can find it, I'll include it, but no promises.
3. There's a 1cm perfectly horizontal scratch near the top cursor button on the front panel. Because it's perfectly horizontal, it doesn't really stand out. Look for it in the photos.
4. There are two enormous capacitors inside; they were replaced a few years after I got the receiver (it would say 'protect' and sound would quit). No problems since they were replaced.
I ran the unit for about 4 hours today and there were no issues whatsoever. I should note that I've never used it in Dolby surround mode, so the rear/center channels have never been hooked up.
It's quite heavy so local pickup would be best. That way you can confirm it's working to your satisfaction. But I'm happy to ship it as well; I have a FedEx account with a 60% discount that I am willing to pass along to you if you want me to ship it. Being an older piece of equipment, *** it's sold as-is without any sort of guarantees ***, but I'm happy to answer questions, send you pictures/video, etc. as needed prior to purchase.
The original box is 52x48x26cm and 16kg (35lbs) when packed up. It's located in Calgary, AB T2N 1R2.
