    I also have another older set of 100w HPM 100's but the decal has been removed from the back; so no serial # listed.
    Thanks for the nudge, I needed to start this process.

    Hi guys!! My gear:
    CS-822A...........AH-05820 <EP> JAPAN
    CS-822A...........AH-05662 <EP> JAPAN
    TX-408.............ZL2603993M <EP> JAPAN
    SA-708.............AE2604133D <EP> JAPAN
    CT-F950...........ZJ9301038 <EP> JAPAN
    SG-9800...........AK4718138K <EP> JAPAN
    RG-2.................BB261024G <EP> JAPAN

    I´m the original owner of them; except for the CT-F950 (bought in USA, by a friend of my father), everyone bought in Argentina, at a, now unexisting, hi-end audio store, between 1979 and 1981.

    Hi,
    Is this database maintained/updated regularly? Seems very old to me.
    Any point in me sending my equipment serial numbers?
    Regards

    I don't know about a value for this database. Some folks have been interested in what their serial numbers mean (month/year of manufacture).

    Enjoy,

    I was expecting later actually as mine has the sensitivity switch on the back which is documented as being a later model.

    Awesome! I've been trying to find one for 5 years and never could afford one but traded a bunch of stuff with minimal cash for this one which is near mint. Very very happy.

    I'm surprised on how many SX'es show up with respect to the 4-digit SA's

    I like this thread, very interesting!

    I just picked up a nice Pioneer amp and tuner, $100 for pair, and they sound Great! Just need some meter lights

    SA-6700 YA 360 2034F (Jan 78)

    TX-6700 YB 360 4627M (Feb 78)
    Both made in Japan

    HPM 100 MM-WC- 15472 (March 76)
    From the paper info sheet stapled to the back of the cab. I bought this new in I think 76 or 77 maybe 78. Brain fade......
    The other HPM tag is missing.
    UPDATE
    SX-1050 WC 3905338M (March 1976) This amp is a great match up with my HPMS !
