I have owned this tape deck for over 40 years. I was told by a factory representative at the time that I purchased it that it was originally designed to be a video recorder, but was changed to be an audio recorder because of a lack of demand for video recorders at that time. Individual frequency response readouts were supplied with each deck, indicating its record/playback capability. It is a beautiful unit which sounds great. The one that I purchased came with a wood cover that can be removed when the unit is in use.
