I love it! Those are so great ads, also nice to see how expensive they were back then!!! Makes me feel better about buying them today to collect, at least I'm not the only person who spent a fortune on them :-) (figure inflation and the price would be really up there today, well if electronics were still that expensive today anyway!)

Thanks AHARDBODY!

It's not on there ( the price) but I believe I paid like $365 for my Aiwa CS-880 from a mail order catalog, (remember mail order and catalogs before online, lol ), a lot of money back than for a jobless 16 year old!

I like that one Toshiba "walky" where the top of the tape sticks out of the unit, the red one, very slick stuff

very nice Bobby, I know more members have there own brochures and stuff, everyone needs to ad to this thread, good stuff all of it.

When I went thru the old audio magazines and others that I have I only scanned boombox and related pictures, there are lots of home audio and even have some old road and track etc. magazines, if anyone would like me to look for something specific or from a certain category just let me know.

I actually wrote this before you posted the rest of those brochures but for some reason it didn't go thru

Wow!!!! There's some great adds in here...

So much to oogle over! But, among the most interesting to me are:

  • The Sharp GF-305, looks like a cross between the 9191 & 9292, plus it appears to have echo and pitch control like the 9696. Very cool!
  • The two attention-grabbing "walky" bikini shots
  • The topless girl lying face down behind the C-100!
  • The M90 / M50 add. Leads me to believe the M90 came after the M70. Can someone confirm if these were ever manufactured in the same year?


Thanks for sharing, guys!
