    Just got this off the bay minutes ago. It is in protection and has a broken handle. That's all I know right now but as soon as it gets here I will update and add pics. SPEC 2 AK.gif

    Tons of Pioneer power. Your going to like it, after you put some magic back in it.
    Matt's restoration thread is about the only info you'll need.

    Looking at the specs and service manual it appears the power supply of this thing is less robust than an SX1250 yet it is rated at 250w/channel. Is the 1250 really that overbuilt?

    I don't see it that way.
    Looking at it in a reliability standpoint using my experience (Which is a handful of Spec 2's and lots of 1250's)
    The probability the Stabilizer goes out on the 1250 is higher than a failure in the Spec power supply but still a rare accourance.
    All the failures in the Spec 2's I've repaired, are related to the driver boards. One Spec 4 had one of the filter caps was darn near short, which is rare.
    Not much of a trend too compare but the PS are pretty well built.
