First, your tape player doesn't cost $1.7M. ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.../19850004597_1985004597.pdf page 16.

"The tape recorder aboard each Voyager has been designed to record and playback a great deal of scientific data. The tape head should not begin to wear out until the tape has been moved back and forth through a distance comparable to that across the United States. Imagine playing a two-hour video cassette on your home VCR once a day for the next 33 years, without a failure."

Second, the inside of the Voyager has a heater that is run by the power supply, kept it warm enough to prevent damage. "The electronics and heaters aboard each nearly one-ton Voyager spacecraft can operate on only 400 watts of power"
