PLEASE VISIT MY REVERB STORE FOR MORE VINTAGE AUDIO REEL TO REEL DECKS AT reverb. Com/shop/djzvintageaudio-shop. READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION AND SEE VIDEO AND PICS. For sale is a AKAI GX-646 4 track 2-channel Auto Reverse 10.5 inch Reel to Reel tape deck recorder. It is in good condition albeit with scuffs, marks and nicks and scratches as shown. Wooden panels are in fair condition with a chunk of wood peeling as shown. 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. A new drive belt was installed as well. The caps were checked and they’re good. All the functions work and the VU Meters light up 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 and hubs are my personal set for testing, for demonstration purposes only and NOT INCLUDED. NOTE That adding this to your watch, list or your shopping cart, which I receive notifications for in hopes of getting significant price reduction a few weeks later WILL NOT WORK! I’m honestly not trying to be rude in anyway shape or form, but something needs to be said about this. Despite the cosmetic flaws mentioned, the deck works great and it is priced accordingly. If you don’t agree with this price or the cosmetics bother you, RESPECTFULLY PASS THIS ONE BY!! Here are the specifications. Track system: 4-track, 2-channel, stereo system Heads: 2 x record, 2 x playback, 2 x erase Motor : 1 x capstan, 2x reel motor Reel size: up to 10.5 inch reel Tape speeds: 7 1/2 and 3 3/4 ips Wow and flutter: 0.04% (7 1/2 IPS) Frequency response: 40Hz to 30kHz (7 1/2 IPS) Signal to Noise Ratio: 63 dB Crosstalk: 35dB. Please take into consideration that very similar or other comparable model decks are SKYROCKETING in price, including those listed in “for parts or not working” condition or are untested or partially tested and may or may not even be in working condition. But if youre looking for one that works and gets the job done whether it’s recording or tape transfers, then you’ve come to the right place! Thank you for your understanding! 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. 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.
