A couple posts back, I mentioned having some leads on good decks. Well, a lead paid off.

Earlier this year, I acquired a stash of nice SR-MV45 units. It was hard to turn down, the decks really were nice, not your average eBay/Craigslist junk. I know members here are always seeking quality decks, so I grabbed all them for us. However, even being nice decks, I saw these could be better. After a quite a bit of time and expenses, I refurbished several of the decks to minty like-new condition, and those are now starting to become available.

(Worth mentioning: Several perform/function below my expectations, and those are parts fodder if/when needed. Good parts, not eBay junk decks "for parts".)

Back in December, I honestly thought I was done with VCRs.

So if you want a good deck, get it while I got it!

Added some decks, including another A+ 7800!

Hi, Lordsmurf! On my other forums, when there is a smurf, that is always the go-to gal or guy! Funny, but true. Anyway, I have been reading here for a bit and I would be interested in your jvc 7900. Is it in great working condition? I stupidly sold my jvc, I believe it was the 9600 or 9900, a few years ago and now ant it back. I understand from your ratings that this one is a good one. Please let me know if it is available. I first want to use it to watch home videos made on the compact cassette (I still have my adapter thing) and then will watch movies. I do not need to record excessively, but would like that as a future option. If you suggest a different deck, please advise. Thanks so much!

Updated the list.

All of my nicest A+ and A++ decks are now gone. But I still have some A-/A+ available (not quite A-, not quite A+). If you've been on the fence, now would be a good time to act. This may be the last year I sell VCRs, still undecided. What that means is this: what I have available now is the end of my small stash of decks. So if you want a known-good VCR, now is the time to get it. Aug/Sept, try not to wait until Oct-Dec.

Very few decks are now remaining.

This past fall, after the above update, I did manage to refurb a pair of SR-V10U decks into astonishing A+ condition, surpassing my expectations of the refurbs. Shot for B+/A-, got A+ instead. Nice! But that took months of work, and I will not be repeating that. Ground-up VCR rebuilds take a lot of time, more than I want to invest this year.

Would be interested in a 9000 series if/when you come across a good one. Would also love for a write up on refurbishing these things. I think that would be a worthwhile guide on this site.

I have 3 final decks available.
And at the moment, I have no plans to refurb any more VCRs for the foreseeable future.
