Sanyo Robo 01

Sanyo Robo

Ok, so you thought you had seen all the Sanyo boomboxes huh?  Have you seen this Sanyo Robo-01?  Given its colors and styling it was obviously made for the younger boombox crowd. And I mean young!  In fact, Sanyo had an entire line of Robo products, all with similar styling, that were designed "for curious KIDS".

I'm not sure about the specs on this unit.  I see the other Robo products fairly often but not the boombox. I do know it was produced around 1987-1988.

I'm not sure how any boombox collection could possibly be complete without this box in it. And, if you have a child that you want to introduce to boomboxes maybe this is the way to go.   : )

Sanyo M9800

Another classically styled somewhat drab Sanyo product.  It's the Sanyo M9800. It's a nice basic box with average features including AM, FM, single cassette, tone control knob, function and mode switches, LED FM stereo indicator, Pause control  etc.  Not real exciting but still a good representation of boomboxes of that era.

The M9800 measures 17" X 10" X 5" and weighs about 7.5 pounds.  This one comes in an M9800 box but is actually labelled M9820 on the back of the unit. I don't think there is any real difference. It runs on six D cell batteries or an affixed power cable that is contained in its own compartment.

These boomboxes aren't in real high demand but they do have a market. In good working and cosmetic condition they will sell for up to $100.00.  One recently sold for $82.00 (8-1-2012).
