Another Sunday has rolled around so that means another trip to the market.
 
Pickings were thinner on the ground this week but I still managed to buy a few boxes.
 
First up is this Philips D8234 - I try to stay away from 3 piece machines but lately I've started buying more.  This is a cool little machine, looks kinda funky.

JVC PC-V88 - Big machine with an LCD instead of a tuner scale.  Loud and thumping.
attachicon.gifDSC_0410.JPG
 
Grundig C 8000 - Same again, I don't normally go for Monos or Mono looking machines unless they look cool, which this does, so I bought it.
attachicon.gifDSC_0409.JPG
 
International Mod.628 - Nice looking machine which is the reason I bought it.  Can't find any info about it though.
attachicon.gifDSC_0408.JPG
 
 
Machines I passed up on
 
Sony CFS 45L - Ultimately a nice machine but the seller wanted too much so I left it.
attachicon.gifDSC_0406.JPG
 
Siemens Mono unkown model - Not my style so left it.
attachicon.gifDSC_0402.JPG
 
 
Sony CFS W480S & Sony CFS 710S - I tried to like these but they just didn't do anything for me so these stayed.
attachicon.gifDSC_0401.JPG
 
 
So this is it up to now, I'm taking photos of everything I own and posting them up in a collections thread.

How much was the guy with the CFS-45 charging? I own one and I can say there isn't really anything spectacular about it. Got it for about $40

It was about $25 for the unit. It's not one that I'm desperate for so I left it.

I'm gonna have some photos for you later mate :)

Ok, 

 

Back to the market today but it was really crap, I only picked up 2 machines out of the total 4 I saw today as the weather was a bit off and there's a referendum.  To be honest though one of the machines is a grail and I adore it!

 

This time I'll start off with what I didn't buy!

 

ITT Polo Cassette 220

Yellowed and a bit dated looking so I left this one where it was.

Sony CFS-W480S

Not a bad machine admittedly but I have have enough 90s machines at the mo, plus the volume knob had been hacked on, was really stiff to turn.

Boomboxes bought;

 

 

Daiwa 3D Compo 1430L

Looks to be a clone of the Sanyo I bought last week, 6 speaker system in a Mini format - nice looking unit.  Pretty loud too.  The only thing I can find about Daiwa is that they do fishing kit, more research is needed methinks.

Attached File  DSC_0477.JPG   85.3K   8 downloads

 

Sharp GF-767

Yep, you read that right, one of the Ultimate Grails decided to show up at the market.  I'd never seen one of these in the flesh until today, it's utterly massive!  Instantly my favourite box!  This is a really loud box with some lovely deep bass - easily a box you could listen to all day without fatigue. She's not perfect though, one antenna isn't original, some of the buttons on the front aren't original and the battery cover is missing but I don't care, I'm in love.

A badass box. Full stop.

The weather was really crap on Sunday, raining cats and dogs. When I got there, there were literally 4 stalls. One had a boombox! Yay!
It's a Sanyo M2818L, a 2 way mono unit that looks really funky (photo off of the Internet). Very funky and pretty rare I think.

So I'm back again after a week away in Istanbul. I think the sun hit me hard, I bought seven (yep, that's right) boxes.  Let's do dat shiat!

 

 

Polo/Matz (metz/motz?) MC-2XAA - A very cool looking 3 silver coloured 3-piece from a company I've never heard of, with an LED Graphic EQ, twin tape deck (one with auto reverse) and EQ. Any info about this would be much appreciated.

Telefunken Bajazzo Universal 401 - A really cool radio that has a tuner window that wraps around the top and front of the unit. Really cool looking.

Simtel SRC 3700 - This is a machine I saw a little while ago. I was definitely going to buy it this time round and I'm glad I did.  A REALLY cool looking machine in silver, black and red, plus the tuner scale is a sliding LED! So cool!

Ain't it just mate!  Fab little machine!

 

Sunday has rolled around again so it's time for the market!  I'm supposed to be selling some of my machines as I literally have no space but I just can't help myself!  I had to abandon half-way through as I promised the missus we'd go to the mountains for the day and I completely forgot. Heh!  Thankfully she called me as she knew where I'd be.

 

Right, here goes.

 

Sanyo M-X920K - Absolute stunner of a machine!  A gorgeous looking thing with brushed metal front. All complete and working - this has a really nice sound to it too. I also adore the way the tuner knob is weighted and carries on spinning a bit. Love it

Attached File  IMG_1300.JPG   92.72K   3 downloads

 

Fisher PH-W875L - I'm really starting to dig mini machines and this is no exception.  Metallic candy red with black and chrome - so damn rad!  Sounds pretty good for a mini.

Attached File  IMG_1304.JPG   100.12K   3 downloads

 

Conion C-124F - Another Conion to add to the collection but bloody hell it's so light!  It weighs as much as a caterpillar turd!  This is a unit that has fake tweeters, I might add some in to beef it up a bit hehe. Very very basic with radio and tape only, with a tone knob. Loud though.

Attached File  IMG_1302.JPG   98.48K   2 downloads

 

Toshiba RT-8035 - Yes, another mini, but this one is in sinister black! I got this for a good price which is why it came home with me. Unfortunately it has no power so I'll investigate later.

I didn't get to take very many photos of what I left behind but there were a few big Sharps (why on Earth are they missing the cassette doors?) and a little Sharp, sorry, I didn't jot down model numbers.

Thanks mate :)

On the right-hand speaker cover is a badge that says FAE. I can't find this on any other photo of the 920K and the badge is on solid.
Is it original?
If so, what does it signify?

Great score. You found this at the market?

Was FAE an electrical retailer in the 80s in Turkey or something?

Damn man that 920 is gorgeous. Hit me  up at sale time!!

 

That really is a great find, a string of great finds to lately  :thumbsup:



The FAE Xirico radio was assembled in the Popular Republic of Mozambique by Electromoc EE enterprise at its "FAE - Fabrica de Aparelhos Electronicos" manufacturing plant, during the early 80's. The project and components were supplied by Stern Radio in German Democratic Republic (Xirico looks like a Stern Contura 2500/250R radio from outside, but they only share the cabinet looks, because the pcb layout, the schematics and the radio bands are different).

 

Found that on a different radio on radiomuseum

I saw a listing last year for an M70 on eBay which is not unusual in itself. Two unusual things stood out. Firstly there was a nice red JVC tote bag case thing included on the listing but also when I zoomed into one of the pictures of the back of the box showing the suffix, it said that it was made under licence in Nigeria! Wasn't expecting that!

Yes mate, got this from the market this morning.

 

Looks like we've found what FAE means :)

I'll let you know mate :)

 

Interesting info with regards to FAE, but this leads me to another question. Why would this logo from a manufacturer in Mozambique be doing on a machine that's built in Japan? 

 

I was going to say the logo isn't original but by the way it doesn't budge a millimetre it was put on there from the factory(ies).  Interesting.

I believe it was a refurbish by FAE at the time,or an employee of theirs at the time. Saw that badge before on a shortwave that seemed cleanly tampered with. I think a foreign car radio,too.They probably knew it was a better radio than the ones they made. I have some vintage TVs with refurbish badges,from when people cared to repair.

This is one of the threads that keeps me coming back here to check out what's new, so many boxes for sale at that market!   I'm not sure if I could pass so many up.   Thanks for all the pictures, including the ones you passed on.  Seems like missing doors are common in your area for some reason.
