    At least double what I think it's worth. Though admittedly I've got zero interest in going back to cassette playback.

    The dragon's still command a stellar price on eBay. Hard to believe for me

    Owned a Dragon in the 90's for about 5-6 years. What a phenomenal deck and a real piece of exquisite engineering. Still probably the best single piece of audio equipment I've owned.

    Sadly, there is really no market for such a great piece of gear today. I have no desire to get back into audio cassettes. I'd still have it today if the media was more relevant.

    I have a fully restored (by ESL labs) Nak ZX-7. The restoration alone was ^$2K. Better than new and looks like it too.1iijuyxzg3gq.jpg

    Lovely. I've got a PS Audio P3 up for trade and I'm coming to USA in a few weeks if anyone has something they want to send to a good home :)

    I had a Dragon too back in the day. Hardly ever used it though. Always heard they were a little fragile and didn't want anything to break before I could sell it. That Nak stuff sure sounded good and looked so high tech.

    I know it's not the same thing but there's a Nak 480 in the area for $100.
