      Awesome job on the 1980 restore in 2012 . Recently ran across one in Immaculate but no sound condition. Anyway, good job!

      Matt - do you offer Spec 4 amp complete restoration. I have one and the speaker protection relays stay engaged. I've had supposedly "repaired" twice already and I'm about ready to give up and sell off the parts. I'd like to give it one more shot but I think it needs to be completely restored. Let me know.

      Gets in line.... I really loved your posts about restoring your SX-1250. I was hoping you could restore mine. Please contact here on Audiokarma or via email - jpclyons AT gmail.com

      I am actually planning to visit St. Louis and Kansas City this summer. I could drop it off then. Of course I would pay for shipping back to me in PA.

      Anyway, would love to hear my SX-1250 as it once was!

      Hey Matt, I've recently gotten a hold of a Pioneer Sx 1250 that I'd like to have repaired and restored. Currently the receiver gives sound only from right channel, and I haven't had a chance to treat it with DeOxit. If you think you'd be able to help, shoot me an email at alexhiller98@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing back, and have a nice day!

      I'm located in the UK and would like your assistance please. I am the proud guardian of a Pioneer SX-1980 UK 240v version.
      Problem is, that in the UK, we do not have many specialised technicians advertising.Would you know of any specialists - like yourself - that you may recommend or have knowledge of in the UK?

        Sadly no, I don't know of anyone who would be able to take it on in the UK.

        I just came across this...and see that I can post a comment. I will ask a friend in England if he knows anyone.

        I was perusing this area...as I own a SX-1250...and was checking you out. You sound BUSY!

        I'll post a PM to Idunno.

      Hi
      I just purchased a Sansui G8000 . the unit works ok but it needs restoration since the protection kicks in very often.
      I am reading the list of electronics that you provided in the forum can you please tell me where is that you get the parts from?
      Thanks

      Matt, would you be interested in repairing/restoring an Onkyo P-388f preamp? It's in real nice shape but I get No Output out of it no matter what input I use. I swapped in my Parasound Zpre and the rest of the system works fine. The power light comes on on the 388, the relay clicks but nothing out. Let me know. Thanks

      hello:

      I have a pair of JBL L100T crossovers that I would like to upgrade to the L100T3 standard

      as described in the above link.

      Is this something that you could do? Approx. cost? I can FedEx ground the crossovers to you from northern VT in short order.

      Hi Matt. I saw you in the threads, figured maybe you can help. I just picked a single-owner near mint (cosmetically) SX-1980 on Craigslist for $800. I'm getting no soft start relay. All voltages were normal on the protection board until I got to the amplifier output.

      pin 6: 1.9v
      pin 3: 75.4v !!!!

      Any advise would be helpful and appreciated. - Aaron

      Hello Matt,

      Can you please give me the last order sheet or invoice you have for replacement caps for Pioneer sx 1980? This way I just copy it. Do you buy all the caps from the same place? Now that would be real easy.

      Thanks
