When I moved from my NYC apartment to Candlewood Lake in Danbury, CT. I purchased some vintage Pioneer components for the Living Room, mainly for entertaining. My main system is downstairs in my Media Room for serious listening so I was mostly interested in getting the best sound for not too much money (relatively speaking) and I wanted a vintage system for good value and also to go with my Mid-Century Modern décor. I got a Pioneer SA-9900 integrated amp, a TX-9500 II Tuner and a CT-F950 cassette deck (a little later vintage than the other components because I wanted the ability to play metal tapes recorded on my Dragon). To keep my wife happy, I wanted to get small, attractive speakers that sounded good, so I went with B&W Nautilus 805s. I've been enjoying the system for the last year or so, but decided to break down and add a vintage TT. To keep true to the vintage Pioneer theme, I got a PL-550 TT. I mounted a Dynavector DV-20X MC Cart through a Hagerman SUT into the SA-9900 phono stage. I was very pleasantly surprised by how good it sounds! Now for some vintage Hi-Fi eye candy: The TT: The Step-up Transformer: I am very pleased with the system both looks and sound wise.
