The price of second-hand tape players in the Japanese market has skyrocketed, and Sony products have risen to 5,000 yuan

[gearbest News] As a product of the 1970s, tape players were almost completely abandoned after the popularity of CDs and MDs. But now it has suddenly "resurrected" and the price has gone up. Sony Walkman Recently, according to CNMO, the second-hand transaction price of tape players, a product of the last era, continues to rise. According to related media reports, the reason for this is the sudden emergence of a large-scale nostalgic middle-aged and elderly population who miss analog sound quality. It is reported that the first-generation Walkman, the representative product of portable players so far, has now reached a second-hand transaction price of 50,000-100,000 yen (approximately RMB 2,492-4,984). In addition, in addition to domestic sellers, sellers outside Japan are also interested in such products. Sony TPS-L2 It is reported that in addition to Walkman products, Sony's TPS-L2 launched in 1979 is also very popular. This is the world's first truly portable product. Even if it is a damaged product that cannot be used normally, the market price has reached 3. 10,000 yen (approximately RMB 1497). According to relevant statistics, the market price of the intact TPS-L2 ten years ago was only about 10,000-20,000 yen (approximately RMB 493-986). According to statistics from relevant agencies, the average purchase price of second-hand tape players in 2022 will be 24,000 yen, 50% higher than in 2021. The average age of the purchasers is 45 years old, and 90% of them are men. When narrowing down to used tape players registered as collectibles, the average customer age rises to 55. According to a foreign-operated auction information retrieval website, among many buyers, there are many middle-aged and elderly male users with high incomes, so such second-hand products are easy to sell for high prices.
