    It just doesn't look quite right does it ?? Also the original non tinted unit shows off it's true beauty IMHO.

    Honestly, other than the wrong model number on the sticker, I like it. I dig the tint.

    DCH, congrats on the whole project. You've done a terrific job, and I like your choice of alternative dust covers. And I'm sure you could even generate a new label to cover the old. Carefully done, on the right paper, and Bob's your uncle.

    I hope you get many hours of listening pleasure out of it!

    As a former owner (and fixer) of a PL-530, I can appreciate the effort.
    Here's a gratuitous shot of mine (that's Cherry veneer I used to replace the vinyl with)

    Gorgeous. I may at some point in the future try my hand at re veneering this. Probably with walnut. If and when I do I hope it turns out as good as yours looks.

    Thanks, very kind of you to say so!

    I love Walnut, it’s an excellent choice. I have no doubt it will turn out stunning!

    Anyone find a source of Walnut veneer that comes close to that used on pioneer speakers ?
