October 1, 2023 admin 0 Comments
This listing is for a RARE AIWA WALKMAN CASSETTE PLAYER RECORDER HS-J35 in very good condition, little used, looks close to new. Everything works including playback and recording from the radio works fine too. 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 drive belt was replaced, after the replacements 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.
