I have owned an M9 ( since I was in the Army in Panama in 1969). It worked well for many years and has been passed along to several family members over time. I recently re-owned the unit and find it has developed some attitude. Doesn't sound as well as it did and several of the control knobs are missing. Biggest issue is when listening to a tape, sometimes the take up reel will stop and a great pile of tape develops on the floor (music doesn't stop because the feed reel continues) Real problem, any ideas from anyone are welcome.
Recently purchased another unit for parts and we'll see what I can do. If all else fails, guess I will splurge on a working unit and have 3!! Where is the best place to get repair parts?

I own this machine.
Beautiful sounding recordings when restored and properly set up.
Use high quality tape and keep those heads clean.
