    Let's hear it for JVC! A lot of great gear under the radar. There's a let's see your Sony's, Technics, etc...threads, so why not! Show us what ya got!
    I'll start.
    Amp, tuner & EQ system I put together over this past year. The Receiver I've owned since new in 1980. The speakers were my dad's who was the original owner from 1968 which he gave me recently.
    A-X5 Amp, T-X6 Tuner, SEA 80 EQ, R-S77 & GB-1E speakers.

    Saw that thread. Some nice gear. I didn't see an unofficial/official "Show us your JVC gear" thread though.

    My JVC XL-R5000 CD recorder. Picked it up cheap at GW. It beats all the other CD players I've had by a good margin. Plays any CD no matter what shape it's in.

    Here's an RX-750V I rescued from a recycler. Still working on a right channel issue, but is somewhat working. I have about 20 bucks invested at this point.

    [​IMG]

    Here's my RX-750V that I bought new in 1987. It also has an issue that I'll be addressing in the future.

    [​IMG]

    I don't have pictures right now, but here's the other JVC stuff I have...

    RX-950V x4 (3 work fine- 1 is a project to learn on.)
    R-X40 - Great receiver from 1982. Has a great review in Stereo Review mentioning how the distortion is so low they cannot measure it with the equipment they had at the time. These are rated at 40 WPC RMS, but I think they can give bigger amps a run for the money.
    TD-V66J - 3 Head Cassette Deck. Amazing sound. Don't see much use anymore.
    XL-V450 - CD Player. Plays anything.
    XL-V550 - CD Player. Plays anything.
    AL-FQ555 - Turntable. I bought it because you can control it with the remote and it's black to match the other stuff. Quartz locked maintains speed well. Using a Stanton L747S cartridge.
    HR-D470U - Hi-Fi VCR. This was one bad ass machine. I used it to death. It gave up on me at about 25 years of age. I bought another one and it also died. I bought a newer model (don't remember the number, but it tracks all of my tapes great). Now I have to digitise them.
    No JVC speakers. I have Boston Acoustics A100 Series III that I bought new in 1988. I will never part with them.

    Me too, sharp look'n for sure!

    I bought a small JVC receiver with the slide EQ and volume at GW for $10 and took it to work. I worked with assholes who smashed the top in and dropped it so hard the feet were almost level with the bottom. Funny thing was they couldn't kill it!
    I laughed every time I powered it up, it just pissed them off to hear it, after their abuse! I finally gave it to a friend and as far I know it's still running in his garage.
    Glad I changed jobs!

    JVC PC-D5L from 1980

    Meet the JVC PC-D5L from 1980, part of the ultra-versatile portable component system - JVC PC-5. This was a special concept from JVC with separate components that could be assembled into a portable unit. As a result of this concept the JVC PC-D5L compact cassette recorder can be used independently either with a 12V AC adapter, a 12V car adapter or 8 "D" size batteries.

    Quite a collection!

    I bought a girlfriend a R-X40 back then. Very nice receiver.
    Thanks for posting!

    That's a cool piece! JVC was an innovator for sure.

    Back in the day I never heard of JVC until VCR's. A couple of years ago I saw this R-S33 at an SA for $13.00 (lucky number):

    [​IMG]

    Then I acquired the TOTL R-S77:

    [​IMG]

    And this JR-S300:

    [​IMG]

    I almost forgot the NIVICO 5003:

    [​IMG]

    In my multi-room setup one receiver in the room where the antenna feeds are acts as dedicated tuner and feeds line-level audio to the other receivers. The JVC's are cool because if you're listening to AM (oldies, etc) you can give the line-level audio a lot of "meat" by enabling SEA in TAPE OUT.

    Het loopstick!

    That's a great selection of receivers you have!
    We have all of those except the S300 in the family.

    I'm the original owner of my R-S77, my dad is the original owner, 1968, of the 5003, I bought my daughter a R-S33 for a Christmas present two years ago.

    The 77 has a special place in my heart and will never be sold. I abused the crap out of it during my college days and the 80's with crazy parties running 4-5 pairs of speakers for hours! Who knew about ohms!
    It's still used regularly.
