A mere week before closing the deal for the Sanyo MX-820…
There are many local thrift shops and flea markets around the Campania region where I live and I have posted pictures and videos of some of the radio’s I have found and passed on. Most are entry level boxes and most have been well loved over the years. But on a recent stop into a local thrift store I found this Sony CF-890S.

This box was clearly someone’s prized possession. It was obviously kept in doors and only had slight dust in the back vents. I received it in 100% working condition, only needing a slight deoxit on the switches. The deck is still functioning, and plays well, but I have decided it will get a full set of belts anyways.
This shop owner gave me a very good price and I’m very certain I could have played hard ball and talked him down, but didn’t feel I needed to beat him up to make the deal. Following the transaction, he gave me a business card with 40% off my next purchase, So I will be back.
The radio got a wipe down with a damp clothe and micro fiber clothe and that was it. With the acceptation of the dent in the aluminum top trim, it is near flawless.
I have no other wood panel boxes, acquired two in two weeks!
