    Pioneer RT-1011L

    Hi Guys, Thanks to a longtime friend yet another RTR followed me home this past weekend. This one has spent the past 30 years or so in a church and would bet it hasn't been used more than a dozen times. It needs some stickers removed but otherwise is in great shape. I fired it up and it...

    Have been looking for a couple more Minimus 7's for some time and today I found both the 7's and its brother the 77. These look to be the first generation 7's as they have the screw terminals rather than the spring clips. The drivers look to be in great shape and the enclosures in good...
