Conion C-100F,Original Box, And Original Manual

Considering how bloated the pricing is now on the 'Pay, a shift down to more reasonable prices would be refreshing. It's nothing more than hype driving the prices. People see it- got to have it- overpay for it- half or more of the sales include undisclosed issues- buyers remorse ensues- buyer becomes seller, lies about how the radio has no issues- rinse - repeat.


That is how many of these auctions go on Ebay, and it's simply a repeating cycle of getting screwed.

What's worse is we'll have some person here talk about a box that hasn't been seen in a long time/ever on Ebay, then one shows up. Retarded bidding competition syndrome ensues, $100 radio becomes $400 radio, etc.



Epay prices..... I'm so glad I only paid them a few times, and not at all in the past 3-4 years.

I Agree I Agree I Agree
I tend to agree with Ira - seems like recession has finally hit the boombox collectors. I have no problem with prices going south - I would only benefit that.
By the way - do yall remember how we were making fun of chinese sellers trying to sell that Conion for $3K?? And now we have $1200 with box and manual - and nobody seems too excited - interesting....

Well James doesnt see a really BIG difference here !

( once it get's over a grand ) I have to start

counting on my fingers all over again ...
Ah, the good ol' days, when candy bars were a nickel, phone calls cost a dime, gas was 29.9ยข a gallon, and Conion65 first stunned us (well me, anyway) with $1000+ prices for his C-100F's. Those innocent times are gone forever, I guess. Today it seems boombox collecting really has become a rich man's sport.

Great thread! I think my Conion, missing the tray and cassette door might have been the last expensive parts box to sell. Although it was all working.

I gave up hope of ever getting those parts, so I sold it on. As I like my BBX to be complete and close to MINT as possible.

Has someone bought Ira's Panasonic 'monster' yet?! Gosh I love that thing! Didnt those used to be sick money too? Its a bargan right now in my book, Im just short on funds!!!!

There still are deals to be hand, not that Sanyo M9935's are a grail by any stretch of the imagination. But I did pick up a dead MINT one from Sinister last week.

Anyone else moved on to collecting three piece boxes too? Ive kinda just discovered those...
thanks jeffery for the nice 6400 plug --

after 2 looooong months - it finally did get sold this morning to a friend of mine and many here ::

the biggest, baddest jammin sucker of all times

SKILLPHIL !!

so at least we sure know that it wont be stored or saved or polished ---it will get played Smile
