Nakamichi ZX-9

A lot of moolah for this ZX-9

However, the advert is informative as are the test bench/repair shop images; http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NAKAMICHI-ZX-9...item4cf3466a34

Wonder what it'll go for?

I know the seller, Vlad. He's a good engineer and enthusiastic Nakamichi tech. He has a similar setup to me, most gauges and tapes, good access to calibrated test equipment, knows his way around a Nakamichi. He has a bunch of decks, and wants to thin the herd, so to speak. Very nice guy and can be trusted. Personally, though, I think his price is more than a bit too high for what I think it's worth, regardless. This is the 3rd time he's listed it at that price.

It went for +1700. ZX-9s are wonderful decks. I love mine, that's for sure.

And just goes to show that I don't know squat about selling on ebay!! That was smart, listing it on UK ebay as well, where they do tend to fetch more. I didn't catch it was a universal voltage model..good for him! Hmmm, I wonder if any of my RX-505s are universal voltage...
