Going to eBay in the next few days, offered here for 450+Delivery for a painless sale. Payment to be paid in sterling if international sale, includes VAT for UK but can be sold VAT-free (360) for export. For international sales, BUYER is responsible for pickup, taxes etc. 360 equates to $450US/420/ this afternoon.

Recent (2021) major overhaul including PSU rebuild and drum refinishing by expert. Really collectable unit this one, and there are very few of these left in serviceable condition.

Please see the video tour of the machine and demonstration of it working (recorded 01 June 2022) here:


What you're buying:
1x Sony SL-HF950 video recorder
1x Universal remote programmed for the machine.

Not so good bits:
  • Chemical stain on door, not so noticeable in normal light but noticeable none-the-less.
  • Slight 'bump' when sled operating due to repair, please see videos.

    Good points:
  • Recent rebuild by well know expert in Betamax community including refinishing of drum, sled repair and PSU rebuild;
  • Works flawlessly, very high-quality playback;
  • Excluding points above good cosmetic condition;
  • VU meter LEDs work, VFD bright and clear.

Fantastic and feature-laden machine, including SuperBeta & SuperBeta Pro recording and playback, a host of trick play features, edit functions and of course the sled loading which is unique to this machine. This is a very late Betamax machine (1988 ish) so there were few if any PAL machines after this.

This machine has been doted on (apart from the carpet fitted who sprayed glue on the front of it!) and has wanted for nothing, it's also in the UK which few of these seem to be, especially SECAM compatible models.

https://youtu.be/ekLFQYmf-dQ For the series on the overhaul and repair of this machine by MrBetaByte.

Collection/Cash welcome from East Anglia otherwise well packaged and sent by DPD or ParcelForce insured to bid value on 24 hour service. International sale will be wrapped securely and can be collected at any point by courier from our Suffolk office. Invoiced sale, but no warranty implied or inferred.

Please remember I'm in BST (UTC+1), so any enquiries may result in a time delay if any North American enquries are received, you are not being ignored

Yeah, The link posted shows the VCR still broken, I would post the very last video that shows a fully functioning VCR, otherwise people assume it's sold as is for parts or repair, Good luck.

It's explained in the video.

I'm a rather huge fan of Joseph Heller's Catch-22.

All of the machines in that office have name plates that are characters from the novel.
