SONY TC-KB820S cassette deck


Manufacturer: SONY

Stock Level: 1

Product Information

Fantastic opportunity to purchase an almost new hardly used high quality Sony cassette deck with Dolby S, If this was around today it'd be priced £400+

Sony TC-KB820S stereo cassette deck

Dolby B, C and S with or without filter.

Auto tape calibration to fine tune the recording setting to match the blank tape used

Very little use indeed, hardly used at all, no head wear. Just a couple of very small fine surface scratches if being picky..

With owners manual.

This machine was recently brought out of our own storage (store of new or nearly new quality cassette decks) and set up to either put into daily use ourselves or sell in our shop for around £250 BUT......

We can report that the recorded sound is excellent, very good quality and also the tape running speed is very accurate which can always be a concern on decks which haven't been used for years, so no belt changes needed it has been stored and looked after well.

We used it for approx 3 days, maybe 15 hours use testing some different types of ferric tape we have and also testing some chrome type 2 and also some unknown stuff. All was well apart from one recording on some unknown chrome tape which played back in parts with some high pitched buzzing, it seemed to get triggered off when high levels of high frequencies were recorded on this tape. Normally we'd put it down to the unkown tape but we tested the same tape on another machine and it recorded fine so we investigated with further tests (dolbys on/off, filters on off, level adjustments etc) and the problem on that tape on this deck went away so happy days, no worries, But unfortunately for us the same problem returned on another tape (unknown chrome tape again) a couple of days later and again that went away after trying on other machines and recording again. So we don't have 100% confidence in using it in our workshop or selling it at £250 or more. We are therfore offering it here at a bargain price. It will most likely be something to do with that tape, maybe the auto-calibration was working overtime keep on changing the bias settings and once sorted itself out works fine on that tape but it's very unlikely you'd be using that tape anyway and we didn't come across the same problem with any other tapes including other chrome and a metal test.
