This deck sounds and measures way better than it should. The idler wheel in the transport is a trouble spot, but replacements exist and are not a lot of money. A fellow came over to hear some speakers, but spent a good deal of time playing with the cassette. He did not know cassettes could sound that good!

One of Nakamichi's entry level machines. The good: outstanding sound quality for the money. The bad: the transport is prone to early failure, the take-up reel loses grip and the machine senses it and shuts down. The only real solution was to have the whole transport replaced with the factory replacement. Clearly Nak knew there was a problem, because the new transport has far out-lasted the original.
