Vintage Pioneer SX 980 receiver - after revitalization - The unique receiver of this Japanese audio tycoon, a highly rated model of the iconic series with the number 80 at the end, equipped with analog power meters, has written its place in the history of vintage audio, which is very difficult to obtain nowadays. ..old equipment (yes, it's over 40 years old!)
The Vintage Pioneer HPM 1500 - Unique - is one of the famous vintage speakers and the pinnacle of the HPM series. The acronym initially inconsistently meant "High Polymer Mylar", later being consistently referred to as "High Polymer Molecular", especially in the US in the 1980s. This heavy 4-way bass reflex speaker was sold from 1977 to 1980 for $500. The Pioneer HPM 150 was not a typical high-end loudspeaker, but rather a milestone in loudspeaker technology due to two changes. It introduced, on the one hand, the use of new materials (carbon fiber) for the construction of speaker cones, and on the other hand, an innovative "high-frequency high-polymer film".
