Since I got curious about HLD-X0 serial numbers I did the same exercise with the HLD-X9:

old numbering system: (YY100XXXXT))
QH - 1996 Aug - 3015~3150
QI - 1996 Sep - 3168~3312
QJ - 1996 Oct - 3432~3795
QK - 1996 Nov - 3867~4038
QL - 1996 Dec - 4457~4651
RA - 1996 Jan - (none found)
RB - 1996 Feb - 4703
RC - 1997 Mar - 4861~4883
RD - 1997 Apr - 4909~4988
RE - 1997 May - 5086~5118
RF - 1997 Jun - 5220~5290
RG - 1997 Jul - (none found)

(new numbering system: LLTT00NNNNJP)
RH - 1997 Aug - 5342
RI - 1997 Sep - (none found)
RJ - 1997 Oct - (none found)
RK - 1997 Nov - (none found)
RL - 1997 Dec - 5407~5490
SA - 1998 Jan - (none found)
SB - 1998 Feb - (none found)
SC - 1998 Mar - 5554~5583
SD - 1998 Apr - 5678
SE - 1998 May - (none found)
SF - 1998 Jun - 5752~5796
SG - 1998 Jul - 5885~5897
SH - 1998 Aug - (none found)
SI - 1998 Sep - (none found)
SJ - 1998 Oct - (none found)
SK - 1998 Nov - 5962~6016
SL - 1998 Dec - 6124~6141
TA - 1999 Jan - 6166
TB - 1999 Feb - 6235
TC - 1999 Mar - (none found)
TD - 1999 Apr - 6300
TE - 1999 May - 6301
TF - 1999 Jun - (none found)
TG - 1999 Jul - (none found)
TH - 1999 Aug - (none found)
TI - 1999 Sep - (none found)
TJ - 1999 Oct - 6422
TK - 1999 Nov - 6489
TL - 1999 Dec - 6543
UA - 2000 Jan - (none found)
UB - 2000 Feb - 6560~6592
UC - 2000 Mar - 6616 (new logo! how is that possible?)
UD - 2000 Apr - 6669
UE - 2000 May - 6734~6746 (old logo)
UF - 2000 Jun - (none found)
UG - 2000 Jul - (none found)
UH - 2000 Aug - 6815 (old logo) and 6830 (new logo!)
UI - 2000 Sep - (none found)
UJ - 2000 Oct - (none found)
UK - 2000 Nov - (none found)
UL - 2000 Dec - 6880 (logo unknown)
AA - 2001 Jan - (none found)
AB - 2001 Feb - (none found)
AC - 2001 Mar - (none found)
AD - 2001 Apr - (none found)
AE - 2001 May - (none found)
AF - 2001 Jun - (none found)
AG - 2001 Jul - (none found)

AI - 2001 Sep - (none found)
AJ - 2001 Oct - (none found)
AK - 2001 Nov - (none found)
AL - 2001 Dec - (none found)
BA - 2002 Jan - (none found)
BB - 2002 Feb - 6968 (new logo)
BC - 2002 Mar - 6994 (new logo)
BD - 2002 Apr - 7012~7108 (new logo)
BE - 2002 May - 7140 (new logo)

Assuming the counter starts at 3,000 like the X0, ~1,650 units in 1996 (starting from July/August), seemingly falling to ~750 in 1997 then another ~1,800 units over the course of 1998-2000 for a total of 4,000+?

Wasn't the X9 supposed to be produced in larger quantities?

What's your serial number?

Anyone owns a HLD-X9 with the new Pioneer logo to provide the serial?

Feb 2002 is the newest I've ever seen.

Mine is TETT006301JP from May 1999, with the original (and far superior) logo..

Made a graph of the highest known serial number/month.

Kind of makes sense (similar for the X0)!

Agreed on the logo. Not so much that I care about a font change but dropping the tuning fork/omega symbol was surely about the dumbest thing Pioneer ever did.

Back on topic I recently added this to my little X9 fleet:

March 2002, must be getting towards one of the last?

Only saw this for the first time about an hour or so ago, after getting more curious; maybe anyone very interested in this thread already saw it: https://www.avsforum.com/threads/reminder-pioneer-hld-x9-ld-s9-to-be-discontinued-in-7-days.110516/?

Was there really X9 production up to May 2002? Or if there was a 31 January deadline did the Feb/Mar/... manufacturing satisfy it?

I think Nicolas was taking the serial # at face value:

Quote:
number of X9 built since launch: close to 7000


... but it looks like Pioneer started counting from 3,000, not from 0.
That would make it "close to 4,000" instead.

I have yet to see a X9 with a serial # below 3,000.

Nice! I Just found out that I have a very late example! It's a BD serial number which makes it April 2001...

Do we know If there are any later ones?

mint-o-matic is saying 2002 for the BB/BC/BD serial numbers, yet the original post says 2001. Which one is correct?

Good catch!

I probably jumped to "B" but there's a whole 2001 for A's don't have any serial for.

Right. So we can assume there are no players later than April 2002 because no higher serial than BDxxxx has ever surfaced?

That's how this table is built, yes.

So looking potentially perhaps possibly more like Nicolas may have been correct on a last production run of May 2002.
We have a BC
We have a BD
Can we find a BE?
