SONY CFS-46S Vintage Stereo Cassette-Corder Boombox TESTED Works
September 5, 2023 admin 0 Comments
This is a gently used/preserved SONY CFS-46S Vintage Stereo Cassette-Corder in perfect working order. Item is in near mint condition. Some things to note about this boombox. It is missing the rear battery cover (power cord in the back works fine). It can be tuned to 4 radio bands: FM, MW (Medium Wave), SW1 (Short Wave 1), and SW2 (Short Wave 2). Volume pots and tape heads have been thoroughly cleaned with contact cleaner. Due to the age of this item, it will need this maintenance regularly in the future to ensure that it keeps functioning properly. Failure to clean volume pots and tape heads regularly perhaps only once a year… May cause volume knob to quit working/speakers to cut in and out. This model was manufactured for the European market and as such it requires the (provided) power adapter to be able to plug into North American power outlets (see photos). Power switch on the side of the boombox must be selected to AC Power (not battery) for the unit to function while plugged in. CONDITION NOTES: Sony Cassette-Corder boombox is in superb condition for its age. You will find some superficial scratches and scuffs (particularly the black scuff to the left of the Sony badge on the front) but overall we would describe the unit as near mint. Please note the unit is missing the battery cover on the back. The boombox can run on either D-batteries or the power cord in the back. We have tested it only with the power cord. We have thoroughly tested this item, both the radio and cassette playback work perfectly. We have cleaned all the volume pots and tape heads with contact cleaner to ensure unit keeps functioning properly. Radio antenna extends and slides back into place perfectly. Item is SMOKE FREE. Please see photos for further detail. For more quality vintage.
