Building description and sooner or later to be offered...
Bought this in 1992, plugged it in to see if it worked and had it out for a few days. Than packed it back into its original box and from there it ended in storage ~26 years ago, still as new as when purchased.
Suppose it wasn't good I spent all that money, just I was busy in travels that it became just another item forgotten. Stored and well cared for over time and Iím sure easily tripling the $500.00 or so what it cost. Still has the original receipt.
Likely if the manufacturer added temporary scratch protector(s) to the plastic lens face itíll still be applied...
-Tuning range: FW, MW
-Video Connections: composite
-Accessories: remote control
Product Quantity: Only 1 item in stock.
Condition: A similar to new item with extremely short use and of vintage.
As with most all items Iíve owned that are stored, Dry-Air packs are used in enclosed boxes, climate regulated, so never too hot or cold, even the use of tarps in addition to being in a protected area. Itís just that I always thought to keep things as new or as they were when bought, knowing materials would change if not kept as controlled as possible, including ozone damage considerations. So Iíve been a real stickler on this notion of caring for things. This since I always intended to use the items I purchased in top condition long ago, just never have.
I also had my failures too. Once stored stuff inside a motor home on the West Coast up north of California, thinking that it would be fine. Years later in returning everything was eaten or destroyed by rodents that somehow found a way in. Only thing that stopped their party was the Dry-Air tubs that had in time filled with bad water. Luckily they drank it, still was an occasion decades back that I wonít let happen twice, since I lost nearly everything.

Like to know why older is better, read-on.
Electronic circuit boards of this era were of tin-lead. It has yet been shown to be an issue once said to be by those mandating new restriction on lead. Restriction that includes global bans on industries use of this base metal for products we purchase and enforced by the EPA.
Newer disposable device circuit boards in use since 2000-2005, are of inferior quality non-lead or tin solder and in my opinion donít withstand heat and time well.
Such soldered points will be brittle, weak, actually can move (tin hairs) and dissipate.
Not sure why it seemingly evaporates, maybe because of the tinís ability to migrate and not stay put over time.
Giving a once long lived lead soldered contact point, a very iffy and limited life span. Why some prefer to reball their computer boards, to rid them of cheap solder.
For electronics such as this being offered, it has the longer sustaining lead mix (ancient) solder. That is by far a superior quality product, outlasting anything made since 2005 that uses tin mix solder.
Yes newer maybe priced $ cheaper and they may be considered as updated products, but theyíre questionable, with an expected and early die date! My best for why older electronics are still in demand.
