Vintage Sony TC-252 Stereo Reel to Reel Tape Recorder Working Complete Set
Rare, Vintage, Complete and Working Sony TC-252 Stereo Tapecorder. This unit is in great condition, and as far as I’m able to test, it works great too. I don’t own any tape, so I can’t comment on the functions that require it, however I can get the reels to turn easily enough without it. Cosmetically it is great. Most of the marks you’ll see present in the photos have been cleaned off already with warm mild soapy water, there is a gouge on the underside near the fan vent visible in the photo. The Speaker grilles are all intact save for one tine has a split. Hardly noticed it, can be fixed easily. The reels turn, every knob and button is present and working. The meters work too. I’ve never used one before… The speed selector knob is stiff and mechanical, stiffer than the function selector, I don’t know if that’s how it’s supposed to be, I suspect this unit needs some basic lubrication, and would be a simple restoration piece. To me the unit looks hardly used and very good for nearly 50 years old, and I’m absolutely astounded by its build quality. This unit is hefty and robust, built for actual daily use and abuse. For it’s time, this would have been considered ultra portable and tough workhorse, and the way that is easily packs down and away into a protective cube is very simple, elegant, and practical. I’d keep it if I had the space, but along with a hitachi stereo receiver, a hitachi turntable, an olde timey phillips radio, and some ham radio gear, this has to be put up for sale. Check my listings if that other gear is of interest to you. The Set includes the TC-252 tapecorder unit itself, 2 speakers with cables, power cord, 2 microphones with stands and the original owners manual. Not sending internationally unless you are prepared to pay hundreds and also insure it as it weighs heaps (over 15Kg without packaging). This item is in the category “Electronics\Vintage Electronics\Vintage Audio & Video\Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorders”. The seller is “hevvyhevvy” and is located in this country: AU. This item can be shipped worldwide.
