Sanyo M9800

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 $30.00 to $100.00.

  1. I had the Sanyo M9800 from 1987 to 1990 and loved it so much that I sought another one on ebay in 2021. Nothing flash, but lovely and clean. Brings back many memories playing Steely Dan and The Oitfield on this unit.
