Hi everyone, I just signed up here, I am not really a boombox collector. I did have one when I was younger (I honestly can't remember the make).
Now here's the part where everyone is going to dislike me. I came across a JVC M-90 this past weekend at a garage sale, and I had an idea that it was one of the better boomboxes out there so I picked it up.
I asked how much, the guy said $15. I didn't say a word, i couldn't believe it. Then because i just stood there...he said, ok $10. I asked if the tape deck worked, and we tried a tape, it didn't work. So I said how about $8 because the tape deck doesn't work. SOLD. I paid the man, unplugged the box, and got the hell out of there.
So now I've done some research, and I had no idea of the value of this box.
The box is super clean and the radio works great, the sound quality is phenomenal. I only see a few issues with the box. One antenna is broken, however I can still collapse it properly and it doesn't appear broken. I am also missing one small switch knob, but that still works. The tape deck doesn't work, but the major issue is that I am missing the cassette door.
I see that parts are hard to come by, but does anyone know where I can get a cassette door for this model? Or if any other boxes cassette doors are the same as the M90?
I want to get this serviced and get the cassette function up and running. Any help would be appreciated, even if you could recommend a place in the Toronto area to get service, that would be helpful too.
