An early 1970's Pioneer hi-fi with a legendary tuner/amplifier, a quality manual turntable and the speakers that would have come standard with these units. This kit would be a very good starting place for a budding audiophile. The KX-440 amplifier is a version of the well-know SX-440 with a shortwave band added to the tuner. The amp is celebrated on sound forums as having a warm and tube-like sound and one of the best value-amps every produced.
It comes with an authentic kiaat hi-fi cabinet from 1970 that seems to have been made for this set. We have not stripped the cabinet since it is still in fine condition with wear consistent with age.
The amplifier, turntable and speakers have all been serviced and fixed by professionals. The system could be improved relatively easily and affordably with the addition of larger and better quality speakers. The speaker cases had minor veneer damaged that has been filled and painted. The Pioneer logo on one of the speakers is missing.
