If I recall it right, the models CT-200 and CT-300 are the same apparatus despite for the fact, the latter carries fluorescent level meter whenas the CT-200 has traditional analoque VU meters, harder to read precise.

These decks offer decent audio quality, with rather little wow and flutter for pretty basic deck models of the early 80's. The slim design is appealing. Even the control buttons look cool, while having a numb feel, though.

Along the years, I owned both the CT-200 [2 pcs.] and CT-300. I rate the CT-300 slightly higher, thanks to the fluorescent level meter. The ones I owned, had mechanism failures at rather early age.
