| 178  6   1378 |  1579   179   59  | 1348 2  13478 |
| 179  4   1379 |  2      6     8   | 13   5  137   |
+---------------+-------------------+---------------+
| 5    379 1789 | b1469  a189  b469 | 368  17 2     |
| 1689 2   189  |  3     a189   7   | 5    4  68    |
| 1678 37  4    | x156    2     56  | 9    17 368   |

Thanks for the puzzle immp! After basics:

Code:
+-----------------+------------------+-----------------+
|  2    5   j178  | a17*    4    3   | 168  9   i1678  |
| e178  6    1378 | d1579  d179 d59  | 1348 2    13478 |
|  179  4    1379 |  2      6    8   | 13   5    137   |
+-----------------+------------------+-----------------+
|  5    379  1789 |  1469   189  469 | 368  17   2     |
|  1689 2    189  |  3      189  7   | 5    4   h68    |
| f1678 37   4    |  156    2    56  | 9    17  g368   |
+-----------------+------------------+-----------------+
|  4    79   6    |  8      79   1   | 2    3    5     |
| c7@9  8    5    | b79     3    2   | 14   6    14    |
|  3    1    2    |  46     5    46  | 7    8    9     |
+-----------------+------------------+-----------------+

Then I used the chain 7*r1c4-[r8c4=7@r8c1, -(7=1|5|9)r2c456]-(17@=8)r2c1-r6c1=r6c9-(8=6)r5c9-(67*8=1)r1c9-(17*=8)r1c3 contradiction (i.e. 8r1c3, 8r2c1) => r1c4 <> 7; stte.
