AIWA EXCELIA XK-009 3Heads Custom Black Piano Lacquered Side Panels Super Rare
Sourced from one of our private collections and now fully restored with custom piano black lacquered side panels and superbly serviced by The Boffin @ Nak Central AudioLabs. This Aiwa sounds as good as it looks with this custom piano black paint lacquered finished side panels!
The XK-009 opens up a new realm in cassette audio, with several important advances to push sound performance to the highest level possible.
Aiwa’s original AMTS (anti-modulation tape stabiliser) cuts resonance for clearer sound, while the Bias Shield Head Block works during recording to shield the playback head for the detrimental effects of recording flux.
Amorphous heads are used for both recording and playback, with internal coils wound with PC-OCC copper wire for optimum conductivity.
This translates to greater audio accuracy, particularly in music with delicate passages and subtle transients.
Serial No 001659
