Seriously! Now if only they had a DAC from the 1970s tongue.gif especially now that I can crank my DT990s loud enough to hear all the interference coming off my Xonar DG confused_face.gif

Realistic is one of Radio Shack's house brands. The receivers were made on contract by a variety of companies. I've never seen a consensus on who made which models; supposedly many of them were composites of various OEM parts.

They did a good job on the ol' iron, all things considered.

Yes, the Pioneer Spec 1/2 pre-amp and amp are very good. Even the rack is worth $$$.

I would say, if working well, that's over a $1000 of kit...

I found a Pioneer sx-636 locally for well under a $100. Don't know a thing about it, but that I like the look it. Anyone have an idea about this one?

Honestly, the wonderful posts and pix in this thread has kept me both entertained and patient, while I await the release of my own love.wink.gif

The gent was a bit aged, had no computer and no interest in spending time selling. No idea what Craigslist is so that ought to say something. He found me by a mutual acquaintance I bought an equalizer from, asking this guy if he knew someone who wanted to buy an "old stereo". Seriously.

Seriously, You got the best stuff Pioneer can offer in 70s for the price of that rack!!!

 

I think you can retire all you toy receivers and recap the SPEC rack, go through sister thread in speaker section and find some speakers, and enjoy your music. Never come back to this thread, because you can always laugh out our tiny whinny receivers or integrated amps.

I feel like I should buy a lottery ticket.  It was one of those right place, right time things that I so rarely experience. 

 

Better pics will be coming.
