Sony EV-S9000E - Video8 / Hi8 player / recorder / editing.
In general with 9000's I would rate the picture quality as very good and sound quality as excellent.
Line TBC with framesync
-> no need for external framesync(TBC) with this one. Apart from professional Betacam VTRs this is the only deck I've seen with built-in framesync.
In 2008 and 2009 after buying the deck it was serviced multiple times by official Sony techies. Many parts were exchanged and calibration/tensions checked. A lot of caps were redone, including TBC unit. In the early 2010's it was serviced again by http://www.1ivanka.de/
- I don't remember exactly what was at that time.
Sadly, after last repairs some bad caps emerged again. This time the LCD screen seems to be affected -> It will randomly dim/lose backlight. There's also a 'bad cap smell' when operating. I tried to locate the caps but gave up for the time being. Some plates and screws were left out (picture). After these problems I've only used this as a backup deck in the last few years. Enough to run it once in a while so lubricants don't go bad etc.
(Problems like these are normal for EV-S9000E - caps need redoing).
It's a bit tricky to come up with a price. It works and plays tapes ok and these go for 500 € and up on ebay
. On the other hand there's the ongoing cap problem with smell and all.
Asking 100 € for now.
Shipping from Finland (EU). Ships everywhere and most places start from 30 €+
