VINTAGE AKAI GX-77 STEREO REEL TO REEL Working Unit
VINTAGE AKAI GX-77 STEREO REEL TO REEL – Working Unit. The unit powers up, the reels turn and loads a tape, and sounds great, it will play a tape in the forward mode and also in reverse direction, everything appears to be fully functional from the time we have spent testing, lights, level meters, playback, recording etc.. However, it may eventually need belt replacement, fast forward and rewind works, as it should, However as it is with alot of these units when fast forwarding or rewinding the tape, the reels slow down as the reel spools fills up up to toward the end of the spool. I find sometimes is a good feature as to not whip the tape around the full reel before it stops. It also depends on if your using quality tape and not a cheap back-coated tape, that is subject to sticky tape syndrome. Cosmetically there is pitting on the top outside, metal cover, other surface scratches etc… Could probably be cleaned up easily.
