bulletI have completely tested, repaired and serviced this reel to reel. The motor bearings and capstan were lubricated.  All switches, linkages, and pots were cleaned, deoxidized and lubricated. The heads were cleaned and demagnetized. All rubber parts; idlers and the capstan pressure roller were treated and rejuvenated. Everything works perfectly. This machine is simple to use.
bulletThis machine plays and records stereo tapes in one direction.
bulletTo record and playback the second stereo tract, horizontally turn and swap reel positions 180 degrees.
bulletThis unit is cosmetically almost perfect. The sound is superb. The chassis is all metal and has walnut, wooden sides and a wooden back.
bullet2 speed: 3 3/4" (9.5mm)/sec, 7 1/2" (19mm)/ sec. It also has "sound on sound" and 3 heads
bulletThere is a stereo headphone jack; left-right microphone inputs (1/4 inch jacks)`; a set of left-right line inputs and a set of left-right line outputs. (rca jacks)
bulletSince this is a deck you will need to connect this unit to your stereo system amplifier through your aux/tape/line/cd input. Don't have an amp?  I have many for sale. To listen you can also use a standard set of stereo head phones with a stereo 1/4 inch plug. I have head phones too. $10- $199.
bulletThis unit would be great for recording your reel to reel tapes to your hard drive or MP-3. SN. 80906-00895
