SAE "X" Series
I started out intending only to collect the "X" series gear that had the optional black face plate instead of grey, but the "X" line eventually became my favorite and so I have concentrated on tracking down the uncommon components.

You will notice on "X" series components that you will see various shades of grey anodizing. This was a constant quality control issue as the shade was accomplished strictly by time of the aluminum in the acid bath.

This is the power cord tag for the "X" series

A T101 AM/FM Tuner with a silver/gray anodized face plate to match the "X" series amps and pre-amp thus making it an "X-T101".

This is an E101 Parametric Equalizer. It has a silver/gray anodized face plate to match the "X" series amps and pre-amp thus making it an "X-E101". This is EQ is owned by David of www.davidsaudio.com. Please go to his web site to see his collection. I am on the search for one of these for myself.

Here are some various  X10A and X15A amplifiers with an on/off switch. Due to European regulations enacted in the early 1980's, preamplifiers were not allowed to have the switched outlets with the higher amperage ratings required for amplifiers and therefore audio manufactures had to re-tool any amps that did not have on/off switches in order to export them to Europe. Some of these amps can be found stateside because Pacific Stereo also requested the option of on/off switches on the "X" and "01"units they sold or they were brought home by military personnel serving overseas .

Above are prototype "X" series amps. The X25 and X15 amps have gain controls like the P250 and the text was slightly modified from the "01" series amplifiers - mainly the M, N, R ,W and X.

Above are prototype "X" filler panels.

Above are prototype "X-43F" Forced Air Cooling Systems. These were based off the production 4301/F105 systems.

Above is a prototype "X-42S" Speaker Switching System. This is based off the production 4200 system.

Now here is where I had a little fun. I took a Monster Power AVS 2000 Voltage Stabilizing Conditioner and created a SAE X-44V Voltage Stabilizing System. It came out better than I imagined.
