    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!

    Finally got most of my "Champagne Series" gear racked up:
    F-9
    SR-9
    RG-9
    A-9
    SG-9
    plus a
    CT-F1250

    I'm using a 19" rack sourced from a local supplier of studio music gear and cantilever 2RU shelves for all but the DT-540 that sits on a 1RU shelf.
    The turntable is a NAD 530.
    It's missing the CT-9R, but it's still out of action.

    Not yet wired up, but next will show it in action

    Cheers,

    Les

    My turntable is a Pioneer PL-540 that I found dusted down and forgotten in the attic of a music store, where it probably had been sitting since the 1980s. It wasn't working and the owner sold it to me for $20. I cleaned it, brought it back to life (very easy with the help from this forum), and have been enjoying my vinyl for over a year. :)

    I already owned a MA-62a (mixing amp), now a new addition has come along: a SX-5560 (blackfaced SX-750).
    This was previously owned by a friend of my father's who were both active in the dutch military in Germany ('70s - '90s). So this receiver was bought at the PX (most likely in Bremerhaven).
    So far I'm extremely happy with it. The SX-5560 replaces a Sansui AU-5900 which in turn replaced a Dynaco ST-70 (VTA).

    Those 'tables are gonna outlive us all. VERY good designs. The 630's speed issues are a bit of a thing, but it's a relatively easy fix as long as it's a cap issue. I have two 630's, a 560 and a 514. My first true TT was a 512. Workhorses, all.

    I love Pioneer! The only things that aren't Pioneer in my main set up are my two TEAC reel-to-reels.

    I have a Pioneer SA-9500 amplifier, A pair of Pioneer CS-05 speakers, a pair of Pioneer CS-88A speakers, a Pioneer PL-31D turntable, and a Pioneer HR-100 8-Track deck. I also have a pair of Pioneer headphones, which I can't name right now. Come on, if you didn't ask me, I could!
