Nando! That is just so wrong..... i am getting a Pioneer envy complex

Those are stunning speakers, i dread to think how much they are?

I would have to buy another house if i wanted those.... Mrs PC wouldn't be impressed at all

They do kind of suit you though

John: My SX-1980 is the one on the rolling cart. I was picking it up from Innovative Audio that day. Gordon S., of the shop, suggested taking the picture because another SX-1980 was in the house.

Shaun: Those Exclusive speakers were exquisite. I can't remember the exact price, but they were out of my price range.

Pioneer CT-WM77R

It's getting to the point I have to go back through the pages of this thread to see what I have covered or missed.

This is a deck I bought from the original owner more than eleven years ago. In fact, I bought a number of pieces from Jack B.. He had the most interesting collection of gear. As I recall, he was in a choir and he did a lot of recording of the live music the choir performed. He was instrumental in my first foray into the MiniDisc format. I purchased a Sony home deck and a Sony portable from him. I still have all of the equipment I bought from him and I haven't had any issues with any of it so far, even with all of the hours of use between both of us. Jack was as anal as I am about keeping all of the documentation, packing cartons, and accessories intact.

Nice photo op.
Not seen very often let alone two in the same place.
I owned a SX 1250 and 5590 at the same time.
Even traded the wood and black cases on them to see what they looked like.
Wish I had taken a photo.
The walnut case on the black faced 5590 was gorgeous.

Pioneer SX-5590

Thanks, Dennis. I took this photo of the owner's SX-5590 just after it was serviced by the shop. Having the walnut case on the SX-5590, no doubt, would be stunning, visually.

Hey guys, there's an SD-1000 on ebay right now for 900 with free shipping.

I'm very tempted but holding out for the 1100. Figured I should share.

One day! And like you I am after the 1100 version...
