    It's gorgeous. Where did you buy it from. I was looking on ebay for months and I couldn't find this exact model

    Thank you, I got this Pioneer from local classifieds.
    And picked it up very quickly, I was lucky. You do not see this type very often, you're right.
    On ebay it is usually rare and more expensive.

    Sorry for the delay. The stands are reproductions of JBL stands. My woodworker son makes them among a lot of other things. I'll post a pic..... Speaker stands.jpg

    I have a Pioneer SX-1000 TD Stereo Receiver in my bedroom hooked up to a set of Bose 501's and some vintage Utah's of unknown model number, and then my LCD Projector rig has a Pioneer TX-6200 Tuner that is mated with a Hitachi IA-600 amplifier.

    I recently picked up a TX-9100 to go with my SA-8100 which is powering system 2. I just had a tech clean and align the 9100. I really like the sound of it, and I think it looks pretty good, too. To me it says "Seventies stereo."

    I have the sx-650 which was my first real stereo back in the day , then a few years ago I bought the sx-1980. then more recently I parked the sx-1980 and bought a spec 1 preamp which is being powered by 2 Altec 9440 amps for my main system

    SX1080, SX1250 and an SX737 that I got recently from a neighbor. The latter will likely become my workshop system. The SX1250 is in my living room and the SX1080 is currently resting.

    Picked up a Pioneer SX-737 about a month or so ago at an estate sale. The unit was paired with a set of KLH Model 6 speakers, which have recently been recapped. I've found that this is a very nice sounding amp with plenty of power for a moderately sized room.

    For the first time in 25 years I don't have a pioneer receiver. I have been trying to thin the herd for years now . Sold my last pioneer receiver a qx949 a while back , tough to let it go. I do have a pl- 518 turntable .

    DSC00698.jpg Just recap'd this old SA-9500. Pulled my pair of JBL 6332s from storage. Man! This old amp is really detailed across the spectrum, bass to brass. I can't believe how detailed this amp is! The JBLs are 4 ohm and not so easy to drive. Sounds is very very good, better then my Threshold S500/ Audio Research SP9 combo. WTF!
