    Just reactivated a few days ago, as also the SR-202W.
    Nice toy - but I will give them away. Too special :D

    My only functioning Pioneer piece right now is my VSX-512S from 1993. It's a beast of a receiver. It barely fits on my shelf! I love all the video inputs it has on it. I'm using them all!

    I never saw this thread before but will chime in now. My inventory includes a SX-990, 3900,1250, 1280,1980 in the receiver department. Also included so many cassette, CD and Laserdisc players I cannot even bring myself to admit (ok, remember) the models or quantity. Suffice it to say it's maybe a dozen or so. A set of vintage 16 ohm speakers and a similar era reverb unit. Bought a very nice early 70's turntable about ten years ago but it arrived looking no better than a pile of trash. Fortunately the seller gave me my money back.

    It is a looker. I find myself doing a double take every time I walk through the room.

    Everything has been overhauled in the last 5 years. Figure my Grandkids should be able to read my cursive. Oh Wait a minute, that's not taught in school any more. So much for them reading my notes on how to repair the gear. I ain't gonna re-print out everything.

    Right now I have my little SX-434 hooked up to my main system. It's not the end-all, be-all in every finite aspect of its sound reproduction, but I always enjoy it when I have it hooked up. At the end of the day, isn't that what it's all about? ;) :)

    Most of those small beauties aren't esteemed in a fair and just manner (is that the right expression?) - most people only would like to have the "monsters". That's a pity. There are so many gems amongst those little ones.

    Hi all.

    I started off by using my fathers old Pioneer system. It was a DC-X21z with a turntable PL X21z.

    After many years of memorable use the amplifier suddenly blew up one day. A very sad day.

    Since then I've gotten my hands on Pioneer DC-Z91 system, with a tuner F-Z91L, turntable PL-Z81 and a cd player PD-Z81M.

    Using the stock speakers, S-Z91.

    I've purchased a separate turntable since then, Pioneer PL100. Just waiting for a new headshell and stylus for that :)

    For an almost 30 year old system it sounds pretty amazing, definitely a step up from my previous one :D

    Hi John401, Would you mind me asking what speaker stands you have under your CS-63DX's? I also have a pair of them stacked on a pair of Frazier Model Seven's and am very impressed with the sound.
    Thanks.

    I would agree. I have owned and listened to bigger 70's SX units in the past, and I prefer my little SX-434 over them. It isn't my reference receiver/amplifier by any means, but I always seem to enjoy listening to music through it, and at the end of the day, that's all that matters. :)

    Pioneer SX-440, my last one. But I guess, it will go soon. A good fella casted an eye at it...

    Just bought a Pioneer A-7 1980 model amp in good shape. Not in my rig just yet, Will pair up with Pioneer DV717 CD/DVD player.
