For sale is my Nakamicki 1000 MK II
Three Head Tape machine with Nakamichi remote and original box and packing. I am the second owner of this machine and
have owned it since sometime in the 1980s.
I don’t use it much anymore, so if you’re looking for a very nice
cassette deck, this is it. Using Audiogon’s
definition I’ll rate it a 7 because the lettering on the controls are slightly rubbed
off and the remote has some spots on the face.
The wood paneling looks very good.
1 or 2 minor scratches, looks used but well maintained.
Electronics should have no dents or bulges,
but a few minor scratches. Perhaps a little wear on the knobs and switches,
like the slightly darker or shiny coloration seen on volume knobs. If the item
was rack mounted, plastic washers should have been used. Chrome may show slight
pitting, but not enough to be visible without close inspection. Silk-screening
on the glass is separating in at most one area of less than 1/2" diameter,
and some parts of some letters may have worn off.
I have listed the Nakamichi Tri-Tracer remote (pictured) as
included, but please remember this is from the 80s, when even remotes were connected
by wires. This remote is connected by a 14-15
foot long cord. This was a big help to
me because I recorded a lot of individual tracks off records and the remote
allowed me to have the record controls right next to the Turntable, at my fingertips.
Included are: The 1000, the original
box plus internal packing, plus the remote,
This is a heavy bulky item to ship. Shipping
is to the contiguous United States only and will cost $55. If you live close enough to Milwaukee
Wisconsin I will be happy to set this up for you, in my home, so that you can audition
it and inspect it up close.
