Product Description

Manufacturer: Sony

Model: PCM-R500

Condition: For Parts or Not Working. Comes in non original packaging with minor scuffs and scratches. Overall, this unit is in very good condition. All the buttons, knobs, switches, and sliders are intact and function properly. The inputs and outputs appear clean and undamaged. The tape bay door is missing the spring to pull it closed so the door stays open. The photos show the exact item(s) the buyer will receive.

Notes: This unit powers on normally.  When a DAT is played the timing on the spindles seem to be off and the tape sounds distorted. Therefore this DAT is being sold AS/IS for parts and repair. No manuals, cords/cables, or additional items are included if not listed or shown.
