I still own my DD-II in red, but it suffers from broken central-gear disease as most of these units after 30 years.
2 years ago i could manage to buy a professionally restored DD33 and a DD-II in silver from a skilled person (i'm too lazy to dismantle it and collect all these tiny screws and stuff to do it myself .;-)
Unnecessary to mention that i still keep all my recorded cassettes from the 1970ies on, Maxell and TDK Chrome mainly from 1981 on. Most of them still sound great!
|Doen't it look gorgious in this cool color? i like it most!|
|still all stickers present|
|one of these tiny screws is missing|
|the transparent pane often has cracks|
|This pic shows a small plastic lever, which is often broken and then the head will not be moved to its correct position and no sound is played.|
The DD33 in my opinion is the best in quality SONY ever made, it came out around 1991.
Will present it in a different post.
