On The Bench
I benchmarked the performance of the SC-27 using the preouts and setting the receiver into Pure Direct mode while connected to the CD input.
When fed a 1 kHz Sine Wave, the Pioneer SC-27 has a THD+N value of only 0.01%, though quite a few different harmonics are visible here.
On the 60 Hz-7 kHz IMD test, the IMD was only 0.002% which is a very nice number
Finally, on the 19 kHz - 20 kHz test, the 1 kHz B-A was over 80 dB below the fundamentals.
