I am new to Boomboxery. I current am growing my collection and I have a Sony CFS-501 and a Sanyo M9970K. I really enjoy rescuing these devices, cleaning them up and bringing them back to life. I especially like devices that have line-in and out, since they can form the basis of a small stereo system, which I think is pretty cool.
I have an opportunity to pickup a Philips D8880 - a CD / Tape combo unit. But, both the CD player and the cassette deck are not working. It seems to be an early CD portable, since it is a vertical loader, probably 1986/87?
Question: does anyone know much about this unit? Are they rare? I can't seem to find much about this unit online.
I realized I wrote D8800. I meant D8880.
