    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...

    I really love the auto-soundstage for surround sound. Particularly gaming. It was lifelike before, but with the distances of the surrounds precisely leveled and the sub phase matched it is a truely immersive experience. I can tell pioneer put a lot more into their programming because all my Samsung did when "auto" adjusting was detect the level/size and adjust DB's accordingly. Barely any difference. On the other hand the pioneer took 10 min of various forms of pink (and possibly some other colors) noise in ea channel and used the info to really get the imaging right. I'm usually one to fiddle w the levels but I won't touch these settings.

    IMG_1826.JPG Pioneer PL117D feeding an SX2000 tube receiver. Right now driving a pair of Ohm E. I'm going to try driving a pair of KLH 5s. Might be a bit under powered. Maybe a pair of Advents?

    Btw, don't stack the TT on top of the receiver. It melts the feet! Oops!
