I did recently got a used Pioneer SX-205 stereo receiver from Thrift World for $20 but my question is that what are the specs for this receiver. Some sites say that are 100 watts per channel but some say only 50 watts per channel. Also I would like to know other specs for this receiver like frequency response etc.

If I can see the owners manual that would be the best but I don't think I can download it since it was made around 1998.

It is really hard to read what it says but I think it says that is it 50 watts per channel. But is this the actual specs for the receiver I have? If someone knows that actual specs I would like to know. The Pioneer website doesn't give much info about the receiver. I need full specs of it.

Thanks

I see what you mean - let me see if I can clean it up a bit for you.

So I guess that the specs there was right and is for the receiver I currently own right? Why does Pioneer say that they are 100 watts per channel but the specs on that site says they are 50 watts per channel?

The real rating is 40W with .09% distortion, 20hz-20khz, 8 ohms, both channels driven.

That should be plenty though, especially for $20. What are you connecting to it?

Well from the specs say that for CD, Tape, LD/DVD etc is from 5hz to 100kHz -3db so that is pretty good if that's true.

I don't really need a home theater receiver since I only play music and have a pair of speakers. I usualy connect the receiver to the computer so I use a RCA to 3.5mm cable.

Btw am I able to connect a pair of 4 ohms speakers? I won't connect two pairs of speakers but just one pair.

You should, the receiver does have a 4 ohm rating.

Wait a sec I just found out that there was a receiver that was SX-205RDS and mine is just the SX-205. I found a pic of the SX-205RDS and it looks different. Maybe mine then is 100 watts per channel since the one on the Pioneer site shows the same receiver as mine.


I uploaded both receivers.


Mine is the SX-205


Both look similar but are different.

If the receiver I have is different from the RDS then I need to know the specs for the SX-205.

I know this thread is old, but anyways I have the amp in the second pic, and the two bipolar output transistors say on their datasheet 100W. So you should get up to that with a 8 ohm load. I replaced all the op amps and caps on mine, and it sounds great.
