Hi all, and an happy new year to everyone !


Just before XMas my GF asked me if I could "sonorize" the bathroom !

That was the right excuse to buy a box, so I found a nice Philips D8414 for penuts on the Bay (needed a small box to put in the only place still available in the bathroom, you know girls... :lol: ). This box is in mint condition, looks new without any mark, and surprisingly has a good sound for a "tone only" box.







5 days later we were at a big flea market where I found this Hitachi TRK-9100. Very dirty, missing its antenna, but the guy asked me 4€ for it, so... :yes:




I cleaned and tested it, everything is working as expected, even the deck. I will restore and respray it later...

And before I left the vendor, he gave me for nothing this Philips D-8534. Radio is OK, but the deck doesn't work on play (only FF and rewind), it must have the broken gear problem like a lot of boxes from Philips do... 2 boxes for 4€ :w00t:


The handle is broken and 2 sliders are missing. I will restore it too if I can find these missing parts ! Will ask in "Parts Wanted" soon :-D
