    Hi,

    We have gotten a Marantz PMD222 and like the title says,
    it is as we may have gotten it out from a museum's
    collection : ) !!! It is some years old and it is unused. Yes,
    unused! We know here is digital audio, but we would be
    very grateful if you could suggest a few (internet) places
    where we could sell it. We would also appreciate to know if
    it may also be something worthwhile to keep in this digital
    era. The Marantz PMD222 is an audiocassette recorder and
    many, many recorders nowadays are digital. So, is it worth
    it to keep a cassette recorder?

    Here is a link with some specifications to the Marantz PMD222:

    Thank you in advance, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    P.S. Could this recorder be used in Europe, where the
    electric current oscilates between 220V - 240V ??
    This recorder has an AC Adapter. On the adapter one
    can read:
    MODEL: DA-36
    AC ADAPTER
    CLASS 2 TRANSFORMER
    INPUT: 120V - 60 Hz 15W
    OUTPUT: 4.5 VDC 700mA
    *The adapter may not be used in Europe, but could
    the recorder be used in Europe?

    Even among vintage electronics enthusiasts (I am very much one of them),
    you might find there is little love for tape recorders. Good luck though!

    I became interested in audio recording and production as a kid back in 1971, when my dad bought an Ampex cassette deck and, later, a portable Realistic cassette recorder for the family. I've since owned several multitrack reel-to-reel recorders, an S-VHS deck with high-quality audio, Roland's first 8-track digital workstation, and, now, Macs and iDevices. I have to concur about not missing cassettes: they never sounded great, and they were prone to jamming and breaking. Someone might be interested in your Marantz deck as a collectible curiosity, since it's never been used, but probably not as an audio tool. I imagine your best bet would be eBay.

    For a general place to try to sell , of course there's ebay. For a more audio centric site, you could always try audiogon.com.
