The TEAC PD-H570 CD player. A beast of a player with room for 7 CDs. How a CD player ended up in my house is another story. Mechanically almost everything works except the laser motor. Time to investigate that further.


★★★★ = Hard
Cost: Low

The TEAC MD-H500i MiniDisc Recorder. There are very few Minidisc players with this sleek appearance, Teac is one of them. But time and 'gravity' haven't done him any favors, watch as I work on a more modern tech. Where a temporary solution leaves me baffled.
So far it has not been possible to repair it and have now put it away in storage...

★★★★ = Hard
Cost: Medium

New (LED) lights for my Realistic TR-882 8-Track recorder. Recently a light bulb on the recorder stopped working, if I want to replace it, why not replace all of them?

★★★★ = Hard
Cost: Low

The Erres HiFi Sound Project 3537. A beautiful cassette recorder with extensive functions. I had purchased this as an already serviced device, in the end I was the one who could carry out this service myself.

★★★ = Medium
