    Receiver:

    VSX-D1S

    Amps:
    Spec-1
    Spec-2
    SA-9500

    Tuner:
    TX-9500 II (have 2 of them)

    Tape decks:
    RT-909
    RT-707
    CT-F1000
    CT-F950

    Misc:
    SG-9500 EQ
    RG-1 Range Expander
    RG-2 Range Expander

    Clocks:
    JT-215A (Digital analog "flip clock")
    DT-400
    DT-540

    All this stuff is daily driver. All equipment is rack mounted with the appropriate Pioneer 19" rack mount adapters. I also have the original Pioneer (black) rack mount adapters for the RG-1 and SG-9500 and the bolt-on shelf for the turntable which were not available to the public. The racks did not have a means of securing the component in the adapter so every so often when I move the racks you have to push them back into place. You might recall seeing these in the Pioneer display double 19" equipment rack back in the day.

    Just moved a TV into my listening room so I also moved in my Pioneer LD player and matched it up with my other Pioneer gear. IMG_0678.JPG

    I'm rolling with a SA-8500 II amp and TX-9500 II tuner. I've been extremely happy with them. Sooner or later I'm tempted to track down a reel to reel and a pioneer stereo cabinet.

    Slight update/edit: Added a CB-E900 cabinet to the mix got lucky someone was selling it for cheap.

    I’m also a newbie to HiFi gear (finally ditching small Bluetooth speakers playing mp3’s that everyone else in my generation uses).

    I am using an SX-3900 receiver with HPM-100 speakers. Next on my radar is a pioneer equalizer to match my receiver and a turntable with the walnut veneer base to replace my current turntable (a technics linear tracking table SL-QL1). Baby steps.

    I recently added a very humble PL-7 turntable.
    I harvested the cartridge from a cheap Sony turntable.
    Total invested was about $11.

    This is the first turntable that I have run for any time since the early 1980s.
    I had forgotten how good vinyl sounds.
    Too bad it's trendy.

    Hey as a 29 year old if vinyl wasn’t trendy I may have never restored this old turntable I’m using. If I never restored this old turntable I wouldn’t have fixed up this old pioneer receiver my father in law had sitting in his basement for decades. If I never fixed that up I wouldn’t have found vintage speakers and my HPM’s and, getting to the point, I’d still be using my small Bose Bluetooth speaker or my Amazon Alexa to listen to the Grateful Dead and James brown.

    Picked these up today at a local thrift store.
    $13 for the SP-700D with remote.
    $15 for the GR-777 with remote, the remote looks brand new never used.

    Sx-1980 I wouldn't have it any other way and sx-650 the sx-650 does not get used it is only here for decoration because it was my first real solid state stereo back in 1981

    Well after searching the globe for more than 2 years I have finally found the turntable to complete my Pioneer reference collection, and what a find, it really is in 10 /10 condition and it comes with its original box!

    Just wandered by and saw this post. I recently came into possession of an SX-4 Reciever, and a CT-3 cassette deckThey are in good shape as they were owned by a doctor in my neighborhood that passed away. The family held an estate auction and I got them fairly cheap, both are in great shape.

    Both reference in every sense of the word. To say I'm a proud owner would be an understatement.
