$200, $300 if it has the little plugs that go in the back for the speaker taps.

Thank you for the comment. This piece did come with the speaker plugs. I'm pretty thrilled. smily_headphones1.gif

Time warper! congrats! 

 

I imagine if it has never been properly used (or not used since the 70's) it will take a lot of warming up. I wouldn't drive it too hard for a while.

Good advice. Thank you. Just for yucks I looked up its cost in 2014 dollars (the SX-626 listed for $339 in '71). It came to ~$1950 (!).

My buddy just "found" his SX525 in his closet on Monday!  I've turned him into a vintage animal and we Deoxited it yesterday at work.  Loves it...............great little Pioneers! 

 

Those speaker plugs - where are they sold or are they?  He needs two of them.

The bay, or making your own. Pioneer doesn't sell them anymore. There are a couple of threads dealing with these plugs on AK

For sure.  And I offered him these and he bought them as they were displaced by the Cerwin Vega's and Klipsch 3.2's.

They are pristine. Got them from a good friends grandmother along with a cassette deck, turntable and a STA64B receiver. They all looked new! She bought them new in the mid-70's and basically never moved them! Paid $40 for everything.

There is about six degrees of separation between me and a pair of Pioneer tz-9's. I don't know much about them other than the were manufactured in the late 80's and cost about $4k. I am supposed to look at them today, but the guy doesn't want to give me a price on them. I actually have to be other that way today anyway, so why not have a look.

Hope you get to listen to them. I see that they are still fetching $600-$1600 depending on condition and finish. With that kind of range, no wonder he's not giving a price.

Those are some serious speakers. Designed by Pioneer's high end TAD group. If they are in good condition, if you could score those for something like $500-600 a pair you would be getting a great deal. I've only ever seen one or two pairs for sale and never any locally.
