Yeah, I have been saving pictures from the interwebz for years, and some of those pics are the best ones anywhere.

 

Notice there are 2 versions of the International and also the alarm sensor switches position from one side to the other....

 

The Helix is the only known Wheely with the moving spectrum and battery recharge switch on the back, but you will see that a version of the International has some kind of different spectrum. It might move or light up, no one knows for sure.

The Blu man comes through again!

 

GREAT INFO HERE!

 

Wild how many version's there are of that box and so few still around. Like btphoto said, interesting about the International being so different. Hopefully more info will turn up on that one day.

 

Do all of them have light up EQ's?

This one really looks different than all the others for sure!  It even looks like the spectrum analyzer might be real!

Even the tape doors look different!

Why do you have a different screen name than before if you were already a member here?

Thanks for the pic :D

Oh excellent! I had no idea.


I have a few of your pictures saved I think. I was on a massive hunt to find out any info on wheely's back when I got mine. Everyone contributed their part to my research. Thanks again ;)

I really don't know. My Helix, Dynasty, and Matsuki do not have a music search.

It looks like it has a 1-9 LED set up. It reminds me on a Toshiba I had.

Yeah I don't think it has music search since it has high speed dubbing ;-)

Yeah, not to put those radios down, but they aren't feature packed. Music search seems to be a premium feature

Yeah none if the black units seem to have music search but they do have high speed dubbing and program for side A and B to be played without removing tape ;-)

Newest find by Jimmy and passed on to jboogie is the Shadow brand JB-750 version of this box!

 

No records of this one anywhere. This is the only place with the best information!

 

 

Thanks for sharing this score with us.

It's crazy how all of these AKA's are nearly identical.  They didn't even bother changing the speaker trim. 

 

Must have been the ultimate cash cow :lol:

That's what the first post says, $499 in 1990. 

 

I always assumed it was a mid-80's box.
