Pioneer (Vintage) Speakers Owners & Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

I just picked up some Pioneer DSS-9's on a whim with little prior reading.

 

They seem to be in very good condition, and the sound absolutely blows my B & W 683s2's out of the water.

 

Is there much love for vintage pioneer over here on SNA?

 

The sound, clarity, imaging, bass.... These may be end-game speakers...

 

Anyone else heard these before? Anyone else have some, or other vintage pioneer stuff? 

 

Chime in!

 

Ben

      Item Condition: fair Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Norwood, Adelaide State: South Australia Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: upgrade to OLED Hi all, a golden oldie here - Pioneer 50" PDP-507XDA with bottom mount speaker and stand, plus Pioneer VSX-AX2AS with remotes. The Plasma is Japanese made of course. Still works wonderfully and no problems with the picture, but we've unexpectedly adopted an OLED so time to move this on. It has an inbuilt digital tuner and looks great with Netflix, consoles, FTA, Foxtel etc. but is capped at 1080i so can be left a bit wanting for Blu-Ray. It'd be awesome as a second tele or in the pool room. We would not have upgraded if the OLED hadn't been offered - plenty of life in the old girl yet.
       
      The stand is a little rough in places but not so noticeable with the amp sitting on it. I have remotes, cables etc but no manuals. No box either so local pickup would certainly be best.
       
      No idea what these are worth these days so happy to entertain offers. Figure a perfectly working 50" with amp and stand still holds some value, right?!
       
      p.s. cables route through the stand to keep it nice and tidy but it's been on the wall and I was too lazy to run them properly for the sake of the picture.
       
      Thanks all, happy to answer any questions of course,
       
      Hugh

      Item Condition: Good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Sunshine 3020 State: Victoria Payment Method: Cash or EFT Reason for selling: Too many speaker Further information: Selling for a friend in Melbourne. Described as the Maltese Falcon of vintage JBL, these L212s are without the subwoofer, but sound so good they don't really need it, superb tweeters and fantastic midrange, with original grill covers, included is 3m of Belden speaker cable, good condition for age. Pickup in Sunshine, Melbourne OK.

      Item Condition: As new Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Sydney State: New South Wales Payment Method: PayPal, eft, cash Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
       
      Price is negotiable
       
      I've had this AVR for just under 2 years and it's served me well. It's had moderate use in that time.
      It's in 'as new condition'. No marks that I could see.
       
      I recently got a 9/11 channel AVR so no longer have a use for this.
       
      Remote and microphone for MCACC are included and it will come in original box with manual etc.
       
      Specs are here - https://intl.pioneer-audiovisual.com/products/av_receiver/vsx-932/specification.php
       
      It can be collected from Blacktown NSW or shipped at buyers cost, which would be between $50-$80 depending on your location.

      Item Condition: Used, Untested Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Laidley State: Queensland Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Not needed Have had these in my possession for a short time but am unable to find the time or motivation to test or inspect them.
       
      They appear to be in good physical condition, however I have not had the means to test them or power them up.
       
      Needs to go. Happy to consider offers or inspections.
       
      Freight and packaging is estimated at about $90, mainly due to the weight of the power amp.
       
      Thanks for looking.
       
      Rob.
