Aiwa AD1500 Cassette deck


Aiwa AD1500 Cassette deck

Seriously good Compact Cassette player / recorder. The Aiwa AD1500 was state of the art in 1974 & still is one of the best sounding cassette players we have ever heard.

Extreme quality & build. With fantastic styling.

This unit is in top condition – works very, very well.

Made in Japan – 1974

SKU: 000298


Checks out all OK – we have been using this for some time & will be sad to see it go. But it needs a new home!

Has had the main & FFWD/Rewind belts replaced – these had to be sourced from the USA – via the UK…..
