September 24, 2023 admin 0 Comments
This listing is for a VINTAGE SONY WALKMAN CASSETTE RECORDER TCS-430, looks like new in the box, hardly used. Sound quality is very good from this model. This walkman has been restored, so it is guaranteed to work properly. Has a standard jack so many different brands of headphones can be plugged into it. This walkman uses two standard AA size batteries for power. PLEASE NOTE: This item has been restored, so it is guaranteed to work properly. Type of restoration done: Rubber drive belt was replaced, after the replacement the speed was adjusted properly with Sony Professional test tape at 3000Hz. ABOUT THE RESTORATION: Why is it important for the item to be restored? You should know that it is extremely rare(1 in 10 or 20 chance) to see a vintage item working PERFECT after sitting for some 20+ years without the need of any restoration work done. This is because rubber gets old, plastics shrink and crack, electronic components that have liquid in them won’t give the same performance as freshly made ones, etc. Repair places don’t do restorations but just fault finding. They just find what electronic component is causing a device to malfunction and replace that component only. This is because it takes a lot of time to restore an item and unless you ask and are ready to pay, they won’t do it.
