Pioneer TX-9100

FM/AM Tuner

The flagship model from Pioneer’s 1974 range, when Pioneer separates really were ‘Made in Japan’ and built to last, this fabulous tuner is in full working order. Picture 5 was taken while just using a length of speaker wire as an improvised aerial.

Physical condition is pretty good. The front fascia is very nice but one little sliver of the real wood veneer is missing from the top/rear/left (see pictures 5 and 6).

The following information and specifications are from the excellent website:
“The TX-9100 is Pioneer's finest professional FM/MW stereo tuner. It has an outstanding FM front end section with dual gate MOS FETs, 5 gang variable capacitor and 2 stage RF amplifiers. Phase linear ceramic filters are used in the FM IF section for excellent selectivity and phase characteristics, and a unique PLL MPX circuit that improves stereo separation. Special features include a pulse noise suppressor, 2 step FM muting switch, multipath output terminals, MPX noise filter, independent AM and FM output level controls, headphone output jack, dual meter tuning system and linear dial scale.”
