I have a DRM-800 that I bought new in 1994. It has given excellent service and worked flawlessly til now, but is having some trouble with the tape deck stopping unexpectedly during play and record. I can't complain after 20 years of good service, but would like to find the cause and fix it. Anyone who knows what the cause is, please message me.



re: DRM-800

This was my workhorse for fifteen years. I have made possibly 800+ tapes for myself, friends and family. It has worked flawlessly for it's entire service life. The only better sounding deck I've had is a Nakamichi, but that unit was very unreliable, eventually needing the entire transport replaced at significant cost.
