FS: Aiwa AD-F990 Cassette Decks A and B versions


Recommended Posts

Item Condition: Used
Shipping Options: Shipping is available at agreed cost.
Suburb or Town: Brisbane
State: QLD
Payment Method: Money
Reason for selling: Thinning the collection.

Further information:

 

On offer are both the first and B versions of the Aiwa AD-F990 cassette decks. Both come with an R200 wireless remote  receivers each and share one T200 remote. These were optional extras but come as part of the sale. 
 

The decks themselves function very well and are a technical tour-de-force featuring a built in demagnetizer, auto tape adjustment, real time tape timer and more. Here’s a good place that gives a run down on these wonderful sounding machines

The A version with the silver top has some dents on the cover. This is purely cosmetic. It also intermittently stops playing although this might be due to the deck being not used enough. 
 

Prefer to sell as a pair but splitting available - PM me.

Great decks. Didn’t know they came in 2 variants. Is there a difference apart from the cosmetic?

I have the F660 somewhere tucked away in the garage.... that’s a good deck but these are the next 2 levels up!

There was a F770 in between as well if I recall correctly.

yep, I had the AD F990 (no remote). I think this was AIWA's flagship unit. It had a feast of functions, supported by a visual feast of glowing lights. I think it had auto bias and eq, where lower models had manual.

Thanks @Bill125812! I could not get the images to upload correctly no matter how I tried. 

The AD-F990 has the all important amorphous heads and Dolby HX-PRO which truly works a treat. The automatic tape calibration is pretty effective to. I do have one more 990 which I will be keeping. These decks have a smooth and transparent sound which is listenable for hours and hours at end. I forgot to mention that they have all had their belts replaced so they are good for years of trouble free service.
