Sanyo Record Player. AM/FM Radio. Stereo. $250.
The Sanyo model number is DC8500K.
This stereo was originally a large top of the model line, quadraphonic, furniture system. Photo 10 shows what it would have looked like new.
The previous owner was a carpenter and he cut off the lower storage compartment. This was done in a professional manner, so it looks like it was manufactured that way.
All lights, dials and meters work. It looks fantastic.
All controls and switches work properly with no unwanted scratchy noises.
The turntable is a quality unit, far better than those usually found in furniture systems. The turntable is belt drive and is perfect mechanically. It has a brand new cartridge, stylus and belt. The tone arm has adjustments for tracking weight and anti skid. The record player does have a slight background hum that can only be heard between tracks when playing records. This hum is not present when listening to the radio or playing music through the auxiliary input.
It has a very good, working AM and FM radio.
It has tape in and tape out RCA sockets, plus the old style five pin DIN socket, plus an auxiliary input.
It has a phono input, which the built in turntable plays through. Other turntables can be played through this same input.
The original speakers connected via unique Sanyo plugs and sockets, making it difficult to connect replacement speakers. The back panel has been upgraded with black and red push connection speaker terminals making it a lot easier to use other speakers. The old Sanyo speaker sockets are still there and have not been disconnected. They would still work if needed.
The four sound level meters on the left hand side of the face have small volume knobs beneath them that control the balance and front to rear fading.
It also has separate bass and treble controls for the front and rear channels.
It has a microphone input, switch and volume control on the front panel.
I have read that the total power output is around 80 - 100 Watts. That is 4 channels at 20 - 25 Watts per channel. By cranking the volume up, I believe this figure to be around the mark.
Even though half the cabinet has been cut off, it is still a heavy, bulky unit, weighing in at 20 kgs. It is too big to sit on a shelf and would need to be placed on a lamp table, small coffee table or trolley table.
I am selling this stereo without speakers. I do however have speakers that I can use to demonstrate how this unit works and sounds.
The price of $250 is solid and not negotiable. All lesser offers will be ignored.
The pick up location is Reservoir, 15 kms north of Melbourne CBD.
If you are viewing this ad, then the stereo is available. This ad will be immediately removed once the stereo is sold.
Making Contact. Best to use SMS or phone call. My phone number is ******** 893. If you use Gumtree message my response may be slow (up to 24 hours) as I only receive emails to my computer.
If you make an offer lower than my advertised price I will not respond.
