    The look of this Technics deck is cool Martin. The SQ is a little bit behind

    I know, you had to go right up to the top to get a tape deck that could really cut it. But I still miss them and I'm always talking myself out of buying one.

    Your Technics setup looked really good too. Especially the speakers.
    Why have you changed it to the Pioneer?

    Embrace the temptation - buy a Nakamichi for SQ and Pioneer CT-F1250 for the eyes

    Bartek,
    I will try to answer in a few words. I have started my vintage project with Technics because this was my first HiFi brand back in the day. With the innocent intention for something small and basic. It was a mistake. I didn’t know how big is the vintage bug. Technics has some serious vintage bits but on very high prices. For serious collectors. My SB-5000 speakers are looking very attractive, to me at least, but they are no match for Pioneer HPM 100. Not even close. On the other hand I find the design of Pioneer CT-F 1250/950/900 extremely attractive. So I wanted a deck like this. After I bought the CT-F900 the desire to have other matching Pioneer bits became irresistible. So step by step I have acquired what you can see on the pictures in the first post. I still have to find a Pioneer PLC-590 though...

    A nice bug too Bartek!
    The combination Onkyo P303 and Hitachi HMA-6500 looks great!
    You have a deck or two too
    I used to have Tanoy Mercury 4 but older than yours. My first HT system was based on Onkyo and Tanoy.

    Default Finally... Pioneer PLC 590 turntable

    I'm really proud to present you my last vintage acquisition - the Pioneer PLC 590 direct drive in very good visual condition and technically perfect.



    This is a long desired TT. Almost 3 years I was looking for the right chance. Today I got lucky. And I came home with the PLC 590. It's with the Pioneer PA-1000 carbon fiber tonearm. The shell is Pioneer PP-312 carbon fiber headshell (the one in the plastic bag above the original manuals). The shell on the arm is a borrowed one from a friend of mine. A temporary solution until I find a proper MM cartridge. The Pioneer SA-7800 amplifier has only MM lines. There is a cleaning arm as well. And some original mounting plates for other arms. So I consider this TT as a top component in my vintage system. A 15 kg of beauty. And I'm happy. I will post more pictures after I connect it to the rest of the system.
    On a later stage I could start looking for Pioneer H-Z1 MC head amplifier or some other brand, vintage of course. That's for now.

    Thank you Jamie!
    Would you share some opinion regarding your Denon HA-500 Head Amp please? And what kind of MC you would recommend?
