It has the owners manual and built in speakers so you can set this up anywhere You can plug it in and just put on a tape! New audio transistors installed! It has been tested, serviced, calibrated and the heads were cleaned and demagnetized for the best sound ever. The mic inputs were tested and they work as well as the other inputs. The pots and switches were sprayed and the metal parts were lubed as well. Both channels are clear and superb sounding as well. The belts and caps were checked and they’re good. All the functions work and the VU Meters light up and jump like they are supposed to. The sound when recording at 3 3/4 IPS is very clear and better and wider sounding than the Source recording from, depending on the type of tape used and better at 7 1/2 IPS. The heads are also in very good shape which is obviously why the quality is awesome as well. Pictured reels, are my personal set for testing, for demonstration purposes only and NOT INCLUDED.

Please note all local pickups are cash only! This is a HEAVY ONE! Most boxes these decks originally come in are not suitable for reshipment and are therefore immediately discarded. This deck will be packed with large bubble wrap, dense insulated foam blocks on all sides and a new box so it arrives in one piece. In some cases, these decks are Double boxed. After the time period expires, the sale becomes final. This fully eliminates all uncertainty as to whether the unit may have been tampered with or misused. No fault is found with the deck after testing it out (in this case, a new video will be filmed showing the deck functioning properly). Any other general reason not related to non functionality. DO NOT OPEN A RETURN REQUEST! I also DO NOT accept trades at this time. All decks are cleaned, adjusted, serviced, and rigorously tested before they are listed to ensure they work properly. I have attempted to describe, as accurately as possible the description of every tape deck, including the cosmetic issues and any other issues that I may find and take plenty of clear pictures so you see exactly what you get.
