Sorry, found this thread minutes ago. Whenever looking for some exotic vintage gear, just punch
"exotic vintage gear ( Brand, model )" into Google - and with any luck you will land on http://www.thevintageknob.org/pioneer-PL-L1000.html
On thevintageknob one can find better/top gear that officially was never exported out of Japan - and examples known to exist in the broadly speaking West are far in between.
Sorry #2, not familiar with Pioneer linear trackers ( 1000 also sold under Phase Linear ). But basically, should be of very high quality.
If you are considering purchase of any vintage DD, make shure to check and if necessary, out of prevention replace all electrolityc capacitors. Some ICs are now unobtainium and if they fail, you heve guessed it, it is the end of the road. Only avaliable through canibalizing another unit of the same type. ICs by themselves fail very rarely, but are likely to be forced beyond their intended capabilities if capacitors did appreciably change their values or effectively dissapeared altogether > failure of ICs. As I said, not familiar with Pioneers and if they are known for this IC problem, just saying what is the most you can do to prevent it from happening.
Greetings to my neighbouring country that should be more known for its exquisite vinyl pressings !
