Scored this beast (girlfriend's iPhone for size comparison) off of eBay for under 100$ which according to my research is a steal. Came with the original leather case, owners manual, and an 1/8th" to XLR cable for recording. I'm excited to fuck around with it as it is still in prime shape.

Here's a link to some details to save me some typing: http://www.walkmancentral.com/products/wm-d6c

Congrats

It's a severe steal as it costs about $300, sometimes less sometimes more but in VG+ condition it's a hell of a deal.

This one was used by journalists a lot. It is cult. It cost something like $500 new back in the days. Not convenient for listening leisure (larger than usual) I dont even think it has Megabass or something like that.

Your Holy Grail is the WM-DD9, as good as a professional tape deck.


Although there some Aiwa that sell for $2,000

Shocked

I had tape decks under $20, I listened to them as I walked to school, what is the big deal? I don't see why they should be so expensive these days or so hard to find...

Never knew that there was such a thing as a $300 Walkman these days... I accept my falseness and use an MP3 player.

This is a classic professional model that was also used for recording. $100 is a steal! Been trying to snipe a D6C on eBay for years.

Having had to listen to a cheap tapedeck for a few weeks after my Nakamichi deck developed problems, I can honestly say that even for metal demotapes the difference in soundquality is HUGE.
I just can't understand people who have big collections and expensive records, than insist on playing them on some C-level equipment. You don't need super-expensive audiophile components but some level of quality should be mandatory.

Yeah, me too. While we're on the subject...Im refurbishing a really nice Pioneer dual tape deck and came across something really fucked up; both of the belts going from the motors to the gears basically decomposed to this goopy runny shit. What causes this?

yeah the difference between the cheap ones and decent ones is crazy.

this one below costs like $10 but is absolutely un-listenable.

All Coby stuff is bottom of the barrel shit. Marlboro gives away that crap for sending proof of purchase seals to them. Laughing
