    The 3D7 has good sound quality, it's not as loud as some of the others, but build quality is one of the best of the range. That's when Hitachi made them properly

    Oh, I say... VERY impressive, Boombox Taff :)

    I collected all the 3Ds about ten years ago (I also have a 3D75!), but I never got around to taking pics & posting them up - now I don't need to! Your collection is in better condition than mine, with all those boxes & stickers. Excellent stuff :)

    I have been a big fan of the Hitachi 3Ds since I bought a 3D7 new in the 80s when I was a teenager - more boom for your money than anything else out there at the time (& soon every boombox maker had its own equivalent - flattery indeed). Their non-classic look means they're not very popular now, which just means their cheaper to get hold of.
    Interesting that the ones you seek are the same as the ones I don't have - I'm not sure how many of these were ever for sale outside Japan.
    I also agree totally about the timeline - squared-off 1st gen (3D7), then rounded off (3D80), then decline (3D40), then 90s ASW (3D90).
    ...& the poor performance of the 3D30 - shame it was pretty much the best seller - in the UK at least.
    ...& that the little ASW woofer in it's tuned enclosure gives a rich, deep bass (compared to un-tuned earlier 3D woofers), but can't handle the high volumes.

    Anyway, fantastic collection, you've outdone me good & proper :)
