    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!

    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.
