Quality deck, with dual-capstan transport and hence no pressure pads. When correctly biased, the input-output audio are virtually indistinguishable. Mine is still going strong after 30 years! The tape selection /Dolby mode switches will require some contact cleaning attention (Servisol etc.) to keep them reliable. I have the full service manual if anyone needs access, but I don't have a large enough scanner (the schematics are over 2 feet wide!).
