Ski Bum Posted January 9, 2014 Share Posted January 9, 2014 I have a couple Panasonic SA-XR class D receivers that sound very good. I owned a 300B tube amp for years and it was absolute magic with my K-horns. Bought a relatively modestly priced Pioneer receiver with class D amps and it smoked the 300B, and at 1/4 the price. It is hard to argue the price benefit ratio of modern SS vs tubes. I quickly looked up 'Pioneer class D receiver' and found their SC-05 and 07. Then went to Amazon for a quick price check on the 05. Um.....the picture of the 'Pioneer' doesn't seem right. So, what were we talking about? Something vs something else......I forget. http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SC-05-Elite-7-1-Channel-Receiver/dp/B001GBYVB6 Added to cart and wish list! 7 used from $500. They vary from Used - like new to Used "acceptable." I wonder what acceptable means? The only issue that I see is that [that particular] "Pioneer" looks like it is high maintenance, worse than tubes. Lol! Definitely high maintenance. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
