PORTABLE DIGITAL AUDIO TAPE DECK
10th Anniversary Model
The Sony TCD-D100, Portable DAT walkman. These are great for recording live shows, nature recording of wildlife / bird calls / songs, water falls, creeks, streams, park / traffic / city sound-scapes, archiving speeches, surveillance / intel etc. via the microphone inputs or via line input with a mic mixer / pre-amp. For live shows you could experiment with microphones / placement or simply take an output from the mixer (preferably a separate mix out from the mains). We am currently experimenting with different mics including Sony's ECM-MS907 for simplicity, but may try some AKG's and parabolic's. Also, they are obviously great for compiling your favorite music to listen to in a "skip-free", durable and easy to use format. They were around a “grand” (that’s one thousand dollars, $1000) as a new MSRP. These are refurb’s from SONY and will be certified “ready to go”. Even though Sony’s techs have gone through each and everyone (which is likely way more “hands-on” testing then the one’s simply getting “spit-off” the assembly line at the factory ever got), we will also test each one for basic functions prior to shipment. These are in essentially new condition and include all the cool, original stuff / accessories that came with the units in a bag, plus some extra items that Oak Tree Vintage is throwing in to get you "up and going" (ie: Manual, 2x NEW Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (Ni-MH = Nickel Metal Hydride batteries can be repeatedly re-charged without developing a "memory"), Sony Ni-MH Battery charger and Sony AC-E45HG AC-power supply / adaptor, Sony model RM-ED100 LCD remote control, durable Leatherette (fancy word for vinyl) case, Sony model MDR-E747, “Ear-Bud” headphones & a Sony model DT-10CL DAT cleaning tape*. In addition to all that Oak Tree Vintage is throwing in the necessary cable to connect from a mixer / analog audio source, and then to re-connect back into a mixer or amplifier either via RCA's or 1/4" or into your computer / Korg PX-2, 3 or 4 Guitar processor with an included dual 3.5mm TRS to TRS cable.
