I owned this unit once.
Bought it new in 1974 for $399.95
Loved taking it to (disco) partys in the 70's, and the sound & features impressed everyone.
Sadly, it was stolen from my apartment in the 1980's, now replaced by an Akai 4000D in my home system.
If anyone sees this recorder look for an output level control/knob on the jack panel - I added it custom to MY recorder back then - making it obviously different from the stock model.
