Player mini-score and questions.




Hi guys! I scored these two little guys for 20 bucks. The Nak seems to have never been used and I lucked into these two being literally tossed on a pile of sad looking VHS players (all bpc). This is a pretty low-rent thrift store but 10% of the time I get lucky. The Sony looks like it just came out of the box as well but in the time it took me to run to the "pile" (literally! I should take a picture) the slack jawed ex-con that was "putting them on display" actually dropped an obsolete direct TV on top of the Sony putting a dent in the otherwise pristine case cover. I shudder to think what these would have looked like tomorrow.

The Nak works flawlessly. The Sony didn't. The buttons won't stay down. I will post a video and edit it into this post. Maybe someone can tell me what's happening. It's so pretty I want to try and get it working and put it into the retro system.

It's a Nakamichi BX-2 and a Sony TC-K5
