I picked up a Pioneer SX-880 in excellent shape a while ago. Pictures to follow (after I get back from the Detroit Auto Show the next couple of days). I've had what is considered vintage equipment now for much of my life. My first receiver was a Pioneer SX-780 while in tech school in the USAF in late 1978.

 

After going to Germany after tech school I sold the SX-780 , and bought a Spec-1 & Spec-2 combo. The Spec-1 sold for $325 (list $650) and the Spec-2 for $369 (list $995) at the BX in summer '79. I also picked up a Pioneer CT-F1000 cassette deck and a Technics SL-1600 Mk II turntable. Speakers were initially JBL L110's, and later added a pair of JBL L220's. It was pretty much the strongest setup in the barracks.

 

I sold the L220's before returning stateside in '81, but still have the L110's. The Spec stuff was sold on e-Bay in late 2003 for considerably more than I paid, but I have no idea the comparison on '79 dollars and '03 dollars, LOL.

 

I've also had the following receivers over the years - Marantz 2238B, 2252B, and 2330B, Sansui G5500, & Pioneer SX-1050. Of those, I'd rate the SX-1050 as the best. The military was great for high end stereo equipment back in the day. Great prices for some of the best equipment of all time.

Great stuff, thanks for sharing that. Some fantastic gear you had over the years.

I hear ya..............we are both looking at the same ads and there's NOTHING.  One $125 Sansui amp is the best I can find.  I'm after a Yamaha CR620 with adjustable loudness.

It's basically the same here as well. I see a few Macs out there, but not much has gotten me excited lately. My co-worker recently decided he wanted to build a vintage system. He already had a pair of Snall Type Ks, but wanted a bigger speaker and a receiver to replace his Nakamichi that died. He ended up driving five hours one way to pick up a Marantz 2285B and a set of McIntosh ML-1Cs. When he arrived, the cat had some AR90s hooked up. My buddy liked them and bought them too. Here's what it looks like at the moment:

 

 

 

I'm still working with him to get it laid out better.

Those speakers have nice horns!

 

Yes, I know - horrible joke but could not resist.

I had a chance to pick up a nice 1976 luxman L100u in mint condition month ago. Paired it with vintage JBL L112 speakers in my bedroom. 70-80 disco/rock music never sound this good before. Very impressive and musical sounding.
