I acquired a Pioneer HTV-SW1 thrift some time ago. Without the Control unit, much of the control and filter function is useless due to the microprocessor data and clock signals to operate that part of the electronic in the SW1 unit. The power amps though can be directly inputed (by hook or crook) to work without those signals but you have to provide your own preamp control and lose the sub low end filter. The 8" subwoofer has some worthwhile sound as a small tight sound system so even jury-rigged it has some useful interest. I've looked for the C1 unit without much success and so just posting to inform anyone who thinks that the SW1 until will work with any other substituted input straight up needs to rethink it a bit. In addition to the volume, tone and filter control that the C1 handles there are relay protection circuits that need to be manually activated as well as the mute function. It takes a fairly experienced circuit person to manage this beast. Since I paid only $15 for the SW1, modifying it doesn't bother me to waste the micro controlled circuits and just tap into the power amps. You can't have it all on these old units but you can salvage enough to integrate it into some stereo hobby usefulness.
