Akai X-1800SD Reel to Reel and 8 Track Tape Recorder Built-In Speakers. This item is for parts and repair. The wood cabinet has cosmetic damaged but is structurally sound. Word surfaces will need to be finished on all sides. The item does have power and will move forward and reverse stopping in both directions. The rubber pulley is dry rotted and all the knobs are missing from the face. Most of the switches and buttons have a reaction or resistance when depressed or turned and the counter moves with the reel-to-reel when in play mode or reverse or forward. VU output left and right both work and lights up but the cartridge and programs light 1 2 3 and 4 do not also the lens cover for the cartridge program has come loose with from the face. I was not able to produce sound from the speakers but when I switch the recorder over to the eight track I was able to plug a set of headphones into the item and did receive sound in the left and the right side of the headphones. Also was able to distribute the balance to one side or the other. Unfortunately as the 8-track continued to play the tape from the 8-track came out from underneath the reel to reel ended up cutting to remove the 8-track out of the cabinet. Needs repair work done to the eight-track section of this piece as well. The overall cabinet is in good condition it is missing the back cover and it is missing three of the original rubber feet. I did not test any of the ports speaker ports in the rear of the cabinet nor did I check any of the other possible problems or troubleshoot it. Looks to me that this cabinet has most likely been opened up before and has been worked on by the previous owner but to what extent and what is repaired and what has not been repaired I do not know. I do know that this item will power on it will play it will Fast Forward it will reverse it does have sound out of the headphones Port. When the 8-track tape is playing headphones do have a sound. This item is in the category “Consumer Electronics\Vintage Electronics\Vintage Audio & Video\Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorders”. The seller is “joetheballedguy” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
