In high school I bought a new at the time Pioneer SX-780 receiver with turntable, speakers and cassette tape deck. Halfway through college the receiver began to act up, worked intermittently for a couple years, then quit altogether. After college I bought a Harman Kardon 495i (I'd wanted an HK340 when I bought the SX-780) but hung onto the Pioneer through 6 moves and triple that number of years. Years ago I logged on here and found the fix to my issue: the common and well-chronicled cold solder joint failure. With that fixed easily enough, the Pioneer has been working flawlessly ever since in my airbrushing studio for the past 7 or so years. The original Pioneer Project 120 speakers were lost in a flood 20 years ago and last year I added compact JBL speakers to the basement set-up. It's kind of fun to connect my phone or iPad to the ancient Pioneer and blast Pandora or XM tunes through it though I was thinking earlier tonight of connecting the turntable and spinning some old vinyl for old time's sake.
