SOLD > AIWA J500/J08 Mint and working! < SOLD



I’m selling here an used AIWA HS-J500 (same model as the J08 sold in Europe). It was the top model back in ’85 and it was also a ground-breaking model that offered a bunch of hi-tech features that blowed-up their competitors. All in a compact size. The number of features was really ridiculously high for such a small gadget back then.

It has the following features:

  • Full Logic control
  • Remote for all the main functions
  • OSC Automatic Music Search for a quick skip to the next or previous song
  • auto-reverse (2 modes)
  • Radio AM/FM Stereo
  • Dolby B noise reduction
  • Tape selector
  • Two jack outputs
  • Stereo recording with integrated Mic
  • Supplied external stereo mic
  • Metal body
  • Hard protecting case




After being serviced by a professional, specialized in walkmans, technician. He has changed the belts, all caps and adjusted azimuth and speed to factory settings. Almost all functions have been checked, except recording. External stereo mic seems to not perform as expected, although it works. Back clip is not included. The stop button of the remote sometimes does FF at first touch (but it stops at second touch). Cosmetic condition is beautiful and there are just very few and rather small scratches.

For details, see the photos.

No black marker has been used (to hide scratches) before taking photos.



the hard case, the remote and the external mic. All original.




Bank transfer, PayPal. You can also pay it here if you come to get it.



Cost depends on the country (check price in table below). You can also hand-pick for buyers near Barcelona.
