Jealous. Did you find that stateside or bring it in from Japan? Seems like they have the coolest Pioneer gear over there.

That's a North American model number, the Japanese market was different I think and the difference would be there are Japanese characters on the back panel, even if it was a multivoltage unit (often those had the diamond E-P symbol that stands for military exchange available products IIRC). The model sold in Japan should be shown there...CT-939?
