It was so beat, all of the lights were out and it was wired to stay on, only off when unplugged. Could you imagine the shipping cost from Pittsburgh to you lol.

The LR-x0x0 inside is identical to Setton RX-220, 440 and 660. Someone say they all made by Setton, but other say Setton didn't own manufacture factory. I think they either made by Kenwood or Fostex. LR-120DB was manufactured by Luxman. I have LR=9090, LR-120db, and Setton RX-660, I can confirm this info.

 

BTW, they all great receivers.

Awesome, thank you for the info.  I can't even believe how fantastic the FM reception is. The headphone out is unreal as well, just unlimited power. Thanks again!

Yep, the long-gone national electronics chain Lafayette Radio Electronics was a store with a catalog as thick as a phone book, sort of what you might get if you crossed Allied Radio with Radio Shack, but with fewer stores. LRE, the only US chain to carry its own version of the original Fostex T50 (not the T50RP), is still waiting for its closeup.

Does anyone have any info on Lafayette?

 

 

 

 

Nice unit. Here is the info. I believe there is a typo in the ad. It says 55 watts RMS near the picture but in the specs it lists 65. I bet its based on different measurements-55 RMS being 20hz-20Khz at 8 ohms both channels driven, 65 RMS maybe being 40hz-20Khz or one channel driven. Either way nice catch!

It is called Trader Jacks it is in Bridgeville , PA.  The guy is there every week. I do not think he posses any magical powers though.....

 

 

Not all of his stuff is cherry like the Lafayette, I bought an Onkyo A5 from him that was full of mouse droppings. Took my days to clean and salvage.

 

He did have a bunch of old Pioneer Sx seris (bad shape), some old Sonys and some Luxman stuff that looked like it was from the 80's.

Really disappointed with the 90's Pioneer.  Doesn't compare to the 70's Pioneer.

Indeed, wonderful looking stuff Parula.

Unless I'm mistaken, I think that gear belongs to crazyray, and those pics are copied from a previous post. I remember that post from a while back, and it was what first prompted my interest in one day acquiring my own ka-907. But if I'm wrong, very nice setup indeeed.

Fantastic score. You were able to find something that you like more than the lyr, which also competes above it's asking price, for 30.00? Nice indeed. There are some good gems out there that have gone undiscovered. It just shows there's more out there than the marantzs, sansui, pannys etc of the world. Enjoy.beerchug.gif

Out of all the Pioneer SX series.  Which is the best price to performance ratio.  This is specifically for headphones-LCD-2 and Magnums.  I have the SX-737 and want to upgrade.  

I wish I could afford the SX-1250, but can't really afford anything above SX-1_ _ _ but am thinking of SX-850?

 

Is it worth upgrading from SX-737 to SX-850?

Or is the jump not significant until the SX-1250 and up?

 

thanks

SX-850/950 or SX-880/980 would be good choices - get the 950 or 980 if you can afford them, these regularly sell for $300 in very good condition.
