Check out this Sony M-440V portable microcassette-corder and retro orange headphones. Take a break from digital media and live in the moment. Fast-forward, flip the tape, watch it spin. Listen to an album all the way through. Slow down and embrace the analog experience that is music on magnetic tape plus record your own!

This microcassette-corder has been expertly refurbished by our analog electronics gurus. This unit has new drive belts, a calibrated playback speed, a deoxidized volume potentiometer, and demagnetized tapehead. All components have been gingerly polished by our refurb technicians. 

Please note: This microcassette-corder is a single-channel mono-playback unit. When using a standard pair of stereo headphones, the sound will only generate from one speaker (usually the left side). The tape heads on mono recorder units are also usually not set up for reading stereo tapes. Thus, the sound heard will only be from one channel (i.e. the stereo signal will not be mixed down to mono). If listening to audio that has stereo panning, you will only hear what is on one channel.

Please note this little player had an entire life before Retrospekt. It will show signs of previous usage, but it is guaranteed to be working, clean, and restored.

What is a B-Grade?

B-grade products have been refurbished by our team and are fully tested and functional. However, they may not be in the best cosmetic condition and will feature some combination of scuffs, paint chips and other imperfections. While they may not be ready for the meticulous collector, they still work great and they still deserve love. So we're selling them at a discounted rate!

The B-grade microcassette-corder pictured is the exact item you will receive. This specific microcassette-corder has a broken tab on the battery cover. Please reference all photos for an accurate depiction of the item's condition.
