New boxed Monobox
Posted 11 May 2009 - 11:22 AM
She wanted to record some music from the radio.
It should be a very simple unit, because her technical understanding was not so good.
So we bought her an MUSIKLAND mono ( 500schilling > ~35euro ).
I wrote her an simple manual additional to the original, gave her some tapes and told her how to use it.
But she used only the radiopart a few times, because tapeplaying was too difficoult for her.
So the box get stored in boxing and forgotten...
When she came to the pensionists home 2 years ago, it nearly get dumped when cleaning her residence.
But i saved it in a corner of our cellar and forgot it too....
But last weekend, when cleaning up i found it again.
And so it see the sunlight again, after more than 20 years storage!
The box isīnt a real keeper. Itīs very cheap made.
But the personal memories counts here.
Paperwork, tapes,... everything like it was stored 20years ago.
To sad she nearly never used it.
But for the condition it was good.
Looking like new
Plugging in, working like the first day!
I think it will be also used only very less now, but itīs saved for the future.
Happy end for an tiny mono!

It may not be the best, but that box is a keeper.

Nice mono Roman. Are those the hand written instructions you made for your grandmother?
Yes it is!
The box is very simple. Only 2 switches (AM/FM , Tape/Radio), Volume and the Tapebuttons.
I think not many of such tiny boxes survived. At least not in this condition...
