Reviewed Mar 01st, 2016 by Pat Morford

fantastic unit. great specs, hard head, lasts a long time, not an IC signal path.
there is a fine motor speed control accessable while a tape is playing from the front, with the cover off the tape door, which just pulls away.
all kinds of eq settings and meter settings let you fine trim this unit to perfection.
the flywheel is pretty huge, probably why it has such great specs...i wish it were sexier looking, but as cassette units go, his is a lifetime keeper.
dont transfer your old tape mixes to digital, enjoy the quirky original fun factor and texture of using the real deal, like vinyl, it has something...this unit has something extra...i imagine sonically it would be hard to tell from an ultra high end machine, 70db s/n with dolby B? thats plain fantastic.
MY ONLY POINTS OFF are for silver cheeze esthetic..would that it were black, or really committed to the cheeze factor with some wood panel printed stick on tape highlights, but perhaps thats. YES, make yourself a remote that is a wood grain vinyl covered chopstick to work the controls with!
carry it in your pocket liner with your best pens and pencils!
cheers to the 80s...where i am guessing this unit birthed from.
