Pioneer TX-9500II Tuner
Cleaned all Controls and Switches
Replaced lamps with LEDs
Inside it's one of the most circuit-packed AM/FM tuners Pioneer have ever built. And outside it's one of the cleanest and most simple to use.
The Pioneer TX-9500 has a new streamlined look, logically-arranged switches and controls, and a scientifically-designed tuning system that makes it all look so easy.
But it's what's inside that counts: dual-gate MOS FETs and a 5-gang variable capacitor boost FM front end sensitivity to a superb 1.5uV (IHF). The FM IF has 7 ICs with differential amps, 4 ceramic filters (with 2 elements each) and a wide-band linear detector to pinpoint selectivity at 85dB or better and beef up the capture ratio to 1.0dB (IHF). Even in stereo the S/N is a super high 75dB, with total harmonic distortion of 0.2% at 1KHz.
Thanks to the PLL MPX (phase lock loop multiplex) demodulator, stereo separation stretches to a wide 35dB over the 50 to 10,000Hz range. Stability? Even in signal-weak or signal-strong areas your station comes in clean and fresh.
Planning to record off the air? Hit the switch for the built-in 440Hz test signal generator and check the output level against your deck's VUs for optimum adjustment before the music begins.
