Default Two Sony 'ES' units - Tuner and DAT

For sale, collection from West Dulwich.

Sony 730ES Tuner, powers on, tunes stations well but intermittently the display flashes and the output cuts out. In storage for last 20 years so may be a failing electrolytic.

Sony 55ES DAT, works fine, squeals a bit when loading tapes.

Units are 30 each or 50 for both.

Thanks,
Jonathan

I have one of those Sony 730ES tuners and it was their top model at the time and possibly their best ever.

It has an unusual arrangement where the audio from the discriminator is used to wiggle the tuning of the front-end RF varactors so that the front end filtering tracks the incoming signal, reducing group delay non-linearity which reduces distortion.

It doesn't look very special on the outside, but the insides are rather good.

Martin65 - I'd like to avoid posting these if at all possible. Where abouts in the Uk are you?

Edit: Doh, I've just realised you are in Frome.
I will look into how much postage will be and get back to you.

Hi Jonathan

Thank you for looking at getting them posted, I can always arrange to get them collected if it is easier? If you can pack them up I can get them collected.

I would really like these if they are still available

Thanks

Martin
