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 $30.00 to $100.00.
