I remember my TC-D5M purchased around 1990/92 , I think...Fantastic little deck.
Awesome performance for a portable and many were used by journalists that I knew.The only problem with these was that they were fragile...Drop them once , no problem...Drop them twice , watch how they are treated from now on...Drop them thrice , you can toss them right in the dumpster . As a tech I saw more of these in shop than out on duty.
They were just to fragile...A real pity , cause they were dynamite...
Sony does not support any of its electronics after 4 years and its no small wonder...After all they manufacture tons of consumer and professional gear .
I couldn't agree more about the fantastic performance of these decks. I own an early TC-D5, a TC-D5M and a TC-D5 Pro. When comparing their audio performance to my Nakamichi decks, they held their own very well. The only disadvantage they had was the slow rewind time. Definitely a remarkable achievement by Sony !
