All of the recent Pioneer activity made me think of something a buddy has for sale:
Here's the description:
For sale is a Pioneer Spec-1 Preamp in good working and cosmetic shape, the only issue I know of is the little orange power bulb is burned out and needs replaced which is common on these, I have owned several of these over the years and have never had one with a working power bulb
Anyways $400.00 + shipping.
My area code is 99707 for those wanting to guesstimate a shipping cost figure a box 25 X X 13 X 25 weighing 32 lbs or so to your zip code. USPS Parcel select or Priority mail your choice if choosing parcel select it can take 3 weeks to arrive from my location.
If you're interested, let me know and I'll pass it along.
He's only posted here once or twice and feels like he'd be abusing his rights by just posting a For Sale ad.
