I replaced my Kenwood KR-5200 receiver now in reserve, with a Pioneer SX-780 (1979).  I picked it up off Craigslist a few weeks ago.  I had a local independent audio repair place give it the once over and repair some bad soldering done by the PO.  She sure sounds great and has an beautiful phono pre-amp.  I had one ba   ck in the day and always wanted another one.

Nice stuff Richard, I noticed the tt right off, definitely back in the day equipment.  I’m running a mix of old and new in my setup, found this Dual 1245 at a flea market a several years ago and got back into vinyl.  Now I’m on the never ending search for sound. 


going to update with some specs, the Integrated amp is a Rogue Sphinx driving a pair of mini magnepans, but the lucky strike was the TT had an Audio Technica AT133LP cartridge, high end back in the day.  The Rogue has a phono stage so I was able to avoid a pre amp.  Other inputs are from the av receiver, cd and Apple TV.  Output back to the av receiver to allow driving the cheapie bookshelfs and/or the indoor/outdoor Yamahas on the patio.  Vinyl sounds really good with the speakers in the right place.

Great pic.  My turntable is a Pioneer PL-55X.  I decided that I would go vintage since the build quality it better and for price is a much better deal.  The way I see it this equipment was built specifically to play vinyl records and the the late 1970's is the high water mark for this equipment.  Staying with the mid-level stuff -- Pioneer, Kenwood, Marantz, Sansui, Akai, Technics and the like was way more affordable then going with Macintosh, Thorens, etc.  Lastly, it was the stuff I grew up with couldn't afford!

That's a great receiver Richard!  I have an SX980 I picked up in the original box.  not new, but re-boxed VERY soon after purchased.  It would be my main component if I wasn't so into the sound of Sansui.  The SX980 was my LR Sterno for a few years   

One of my 9090DB's:  (I bought a spare after having the one you see here shipped.)  the TT is the one I bought originally "back in the day" - I have a spare for that one also!

The cabinet is built into the wall and projects into my MBR walk in closet,  the back of that "cabinet" opens up with 4 wing nuts, and there is 2"  PVC as a conduit to the middle of the wall to the right, for the home theater setup.   I still need to complete the sliding shelf for the TT.

I use a Pioneer SX-950 with Technics SL-1950 turntable.  Old school.  I bought the receiver in 1978 from a friend who was trading up to something else.  I had a local guy go through it 2 years ago, but I don't think he was top notch.  It runs great, but I want to get a real pro to go through it one of these days soon.

Running an old Luxman receiver with a slightly modified AR XB turntable with a Grado cartridge. The speakers are older KLH. They have a doped fabric for the woofer surrounds, should last forever 🙂 729FA031-AA5E-4E2E-91CC-15DA8C5A06C4.jpeg

Those are nice speakers! I've had both the 17's and the 20's  I used them in the office (home and work) for a little while.   I've had over 60 different pairs of speakers in and out of here, but the Snell type EII (and a second Pair of EIII's)  are my best; those are in the family room

We have a pair of Wharfdale Sapphire SP-89's in the LR.  I liked the Saphires so well I tried the smaller SP-87's and the SP-83's but no magic there; they got it right with the 89's and that was it.

My SX-737 is the heart of my analog/digital conversion project.  Dad has really bad hearing after working for our Uncle for 20 years.  Until a few years ago he could listen to music through headphones.  Not now - but back then - I set up to copy just about anything that walked in as an analog recording (33. 78, , 45, 1/4" tape, cassette tapes, answering machines, WWII boot camp records, audiobooks, and more) to a digital format.  Got reasonably good at it.  Dads hearing further deteriorated so the old CW records no longer could be heard and I stopped doing it almost every weekend, but still do some from time to time.  The SX737 with two tape in/out puts and aux-in helps immensely, and brings back so many memories from College to the present!

Ebay is probably the best place to get top dollar. CL is a hard sell as almost everyone lowballs, so you have to be patient and stick to your guns,  (and deal with the occasional A$$)

AudioKarma used to be a great place and may be still I stopped following some years back however so not certain how it is now.  (am Member 30XX there,  they crossed I think 3 million members while I was still there?  I should go pay a cursory visit...)

Nice to see the "good stuff," is still being used.  I have about four systems from the past, Sony, JVC, Kenwood VR 507 100w, and a Sherwood 7100 on garage duty.  Three have Sony GX12 3-ways, while the Kenwood has a Bose surround setup.  My grandkids love to crank them up and are astounded at the level and quality of sound produced.  Turntable is a JVC.  I also have a couple of linked 100 CD "jukebox," players wired in to play any CD or playlist I want.

The biggest issue I have is that most everyone doesn't own music anymore.  They subscribe, lease or license it digitally, which can disappear at any time.  Of course the providers will guarantee it won't, but you just have to keep paying, and paying and paying.  When Apple hijacked the Napster model, and realized they had a gold mine, well, the day the (free) music died, and most everyone is a now paying subscriber slave to iTunes or Amazon Music.

I think I'll hold on to all my 60's-90's albums and several hundred CD's, since I own them, and can play them for free anytime I want, without an internet connection or cell service.

Here's a good article on the history of how the music industry changed from Napster, others, and finally iTunes, that stole the show.

My home theater set-up is a complete hodge-podge of old and new. My front speakers are Bose 901 Mk IVs from the mid-'70s. They came with the stands ($25 for the set at a second-hand store, labeled as "end tables"), but I hang them from the ceiling due to limited floor space. My center speaker is a Coral Audio studio monitor, also hung from the ceiling, and my rears are two Pioneers. Subwoofer is an auto "bazooka" unit with push-pull speakers driven by a Sony car stereo amp. My Technics 1200 turntable usually has four lanterns sitting on top, but still gets used occasionally for some of the 1,200 or so disks I have. All of this, plus DVD and MP3 players plug into a Harmon Kardon 8.1 channel surround-sound receiver. I do miss the old analog receivers, but I like the full-on theater experience.

PS: I once added up the area of speaker cones in this set-up. I have 6 square feet of cone in a 16 X 24' cabin! I can kill flies by turning the volume up.

Ironic thing is, by the time I was able to accumulate all this audiophile gear, I was unable to appreciate it. Age sucks and youth is wasted on the young!

PPS: Doesn't anyone have any electrostatic speakers? Klipshorns? Nothing like a few thousand volts running through your speakers!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
