The Pioneer SX-850 is a high power AM/FM stereo receiver with super-quiet phono equalizer and outstanding FM selectivity/sensitivity.
The SX-850 has a super-quiet phono equalizer in a 3-stage direct-coupled design to achieve wide dynamic range and +- 0.2dB RIAA equalization accuracy.
A FET in the Tone Control section, plus a 2-step frequency turnover switch for Bass and another for Treble, 2-deck monitor/dubbing, 2-system speaker drive, separable pre/main and more, mean further control versatility.
The superb FM/ AM section uses a dual-gate MOS FET and a 4-gang variable capacitor to boost sensitivity and selectivity, a PLL IC in the multiplex to improve stereo separation, and a special Integrated Circuit in the AM for still better reception and less noise.
