In the late seventies, I never loved Akai taperecorders. Too much mechanics, not sophisticated enough like European brands like Revox and Braun.
But today, after 37 years things have changed...many old favourites do not work properly without service but an old GX-210D.....I turned it on and.....all works fantastic. No wow or flutter! This is and will be an real old Akai ...reliable!
