It can take three sets of speakers, two mics, two tapes, phono, two aux inputs, and who knows what else – this was from the era when a receiver was the home entertainment solution, and evidently many people were into overlaying their own voice tracks onto tape. The look is proto-vintage pioneer – the SX-9000 is a generation before the venerated’blue dial’ or’silver face’ pioneers, and has more bakelite plastic buttons than later units. But the knobs are heavy and thickly damped, the glowing yellow radio dial is deep set behind the glass, and secondary tone controls are hidden behind a hinged aluminum door. Another cool feature was the built-in reverb – a spring reverb system is built into the receiver, ready to add’depth’ to any music. This was to add to any voiceover or recordings made through one of the two mic inputs. One more feature was the’tone color’ selector – in addition to bass and treble knobs, there was a selector switch for four automatic EQ settings – flat, soft (lower treble), bass (obvious) and’vibrant (jack treble and bass). Switching the tone color would change the output shape in a little lighted window next to the reverb lamp – which made its own psycheldelic shape depending on how much reverb was dialed in. This turns on and all outputs and inputs work. All speaker outputs produce sound. Needle and Reverb dimly lights up on the front and shows you where on the band you are. I got this from an estate sale and it seems as though, looking though the grill on the top, someone has been in this. Some knobs are a little stiff to operate, but they do what they are supposed to and the Reverb sound works. Please see pictures for cosmetic condition. Receiver may need tune up and clean up.
