The device is in good cosmetic and technical condition. Recording playback is excellent. When recording, the level on both tracks is about the same, but the right VU meter shows a lower level than the left, although there is no difference by ear. Maybe I have an old tape, or perhaps some additional tweaking is required. Other features work well. I’m not an expert, unfortunately. The heads are in good condition as seen in the photos. Japanese version of 100 volts. A step-down transformer 220-110 Volts is supplied with the tape recorder for countries where the mains voltage is 220-240 Volts. Reels are not for sale. Since the device is over 40 years old, I cannot give a guarantee. I pack very securely, I use two boxes and a lot of styrofoam and bubble wrap. Track System 4 Track 2 Channel Stereo.
