A recent ebay auction of a JVC RC-M90 boombox resulted in a nearly $4500.00 sale price. The RC-M90 is a fairly difficult box to find any way but this one happened to be in exceptionally good condition. On top of that it included some of the hard to find accessories such as the original box, original owners manual, sealed JVC demonstration tape, and the ever elusive remote control. The boombox has very few signs of wear and could almost be considered like new with just some wear around the power switch. The boombox seems to work perfectly as well.
The RC-M90 was sold by the guys at AnalogAlley.com who are also known for selling boombox service manuals. You can find more info on the boombox HERE. The sale price is a good indicator of the value of this boombox in top end condition and should set the precedent for other high end boombox sales for awhile to come. Bidding involved a number of buyers up to around $4000.00 and then the final two bidders pushed the final price to $4494.33. The lucky buyer will get to add this coveted boombox to their collection.
