Pioneer SA-9100

Integrated Amplifier

Packed with an array of useful features found in up-market Japanese audio from the 1970’s, this classic ‘Made in Japan’ shelf-bender was top-of-the-range in its day and has just had pots and switches cleaned & serviced and is in full and perfect working order.

Physical condition is excellent (see close-up pictures). The front fascia is perfect and the wood sleeve is really beautiful.
