Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Mario Filippi (N2HUN), who writes:
Interesting that it has a cassette recorder, although back in those days cassettes were popular and other radios had ’em installed to record your favorite shows or to just use as a player.
Yes indeed, Mario! I remember absolutely lusting after a few radio models with built-in cassette recording features when I was much younger. It would have made off-air recordings much easier! Of course, the most affordable (and accessible) model I remember in the past couple of decades was the vulnerable Sangean ATS-818cs or RadioShack DX-392.
I’ve never seen a pull-out cassette tray like the CK-330K’s:
It appears this Sony CRF-330K only has a few hours left of bidding at time of posting. There’s a bit of a bidding war going on, it seems, based on the bid history.
I assume the CK-330K is a performer. Perhaps our resident expert, Dan Robinson, will share his comments?
Thanks for the tip, Mario!
