The PIONEER JA-R2S Professional Rack - 1977

PIONEER JA-R2S
PIONEER Professional Metal Rack System

In 1977 PIONEER introduced two metalic rack systems, the JA-R2S and the smaller JA-R1A. These two beautiful mobile audio rack systems were designed to conform to EIA standards. EIA stands for Electronic Industries Association of America and its standards are recognized all over the world. Most PIONEER components built up to 1981 could be fitted in these mobile audio racks. Various components were built with front panel integrated rack mounting ears like pre-power amplifier combinations Spec 1, Spec 2, Spec 3, Spec4 and tape recorder models RT-701, RT-707 and RT-909. PIONEER audio components with panels that do not conform to EIA standards could still be mounted using various adapters like the JA-R101, JA-R102 and JA-R104. Rack dimensions are (mm): JA-R2S 514(W) x 1140(H) x 534(D) - JA-R1A 514(W) x 1006(H) x 534(D)
