Surprisingly good sound quality [esp. wow & flutter] by the ear, for a reverse deck. Reasonably well equipped, yet the level meters are not the most precise for home recordings:
just 2 dB deviation around 0 level.

Not the ultimate audiophile choice, yet a nice basic deck anyway, with the sense of quality to the build.
