    I was in my gf's basement the other day and her dad has all this old mint condition
    Pioneer 1970-80's Pioneer Stereo Componants
    From what i can tell this stuff was prolly around15-20k back in the day

    She said i could have them all
    These things include, receiver, power amp, huge speakers, tape deck, record player, pioneer old school cans

    Also im getting like300 records with everything from old floyd to boston

    Some of the model numbers were as followed. Any info on how this stuff is?
    Speaker - SC-B9000D
    Reciever - SA-424
    Amp - SX-1050

    I mean is this stuff still good

    IN FACT THIS RECIEVER IS SUPPOSE TO RULE!!!
    This receiver is at 120 watts per channel. Any this is raw power

    look on the back of the equip. there should be a production date, my cousin still uses his from the same era, works fine. a lot of people over at audiokarma covet this stuff.

    I don’t think you’ll find any receivers from that era making that kind of power.

    From what I can dig up on a Google search the 424 only put out 12 watts per channel. Even if that is not correct, this picture is revealing. You can tell from the dearth of knobs and other controls that it was an entry-level model.

    hi guys

    Wayne, Radio Shack also had the same unit, my parents owned it. This was about 1975 ish. No idea on wattage.

    Regards

    i didn't mean this model exactly, but pioneer equip. from that era, such as sx1980, in think this is the right model#, i could be wrong.
