If I had money to throw away, I'd get one, but only if I knew an audio repair/maintenance guru who could keep the unit up-and-running. Easier said than done.
My tech was very happy when I had one. It wasn't that I didn't have the money for the repair it was the headaches of lugging it back and fort to the repair shop and it weighs in at 78 Lbs.
If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing well
If I knew a tech, I would not have parted with my Symfonia Opus 10 amp..... My favorite solid-state piece of all time..........
The good part is I sold the piece to someone who does have a tech...... His tech reconditioned the unit (replaced a transistor that was on verge of failing), and the amp now uses a protection ciruit...... Still sounds fabulous.
Worked at a store that had a new SX1980 on display. After a short time it broke. The small profit mark up (remember truckload blow out sales days) was less than what it would cost to ship back for warranty repair. So the store manager let it sit for months and months so our store wouldn't have to take a loss.
It was finally gone one day. Think the Pioneer visited and was horrified at the situation. He took care of the shipping.
The real keeper was the Series 20 class A 30 watt per channel amp. Pioneer was afraid highend 30 watt amps wouldn't sell coming from a "horse power" company. So they started Series 20. Still a nice sounding amp. Great times.
