    Default Technics RS1500 a sad day for me

    Decided to let my Technics RS-1500 go the other day
    Lovely machine this and in excellent condition, good on the eye and also in sound quality, but it was not getting used so decided to let it go to a good caring owner.
    Fully serviced, recapped and calibrated for RTM SM-900 & LPR-90 tape, I put a lot of work into restoring this machine and it runs like a dream
    I'm sure the new owner will be very happy

    Lovely machines Alan, shame to see it go.

On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    Micky Ricky has just bought my "bestest" Tascam BR20 from me, so he has put the RS1500 up for sale on PFM.

    Thanks for the update Mick and Kudos to you for delivering it to him in person

    The new owner contacted me and said he was very happy and said it sounded excellent with the tape you gave him
