In the 70's, I often visited someone owning the TC-800D. Thus, I had the opportunity getting to know the model.
In a way, the deck had looks to it. Then again, the item took the space of two standard-sized tape decks.
The TC-800D had the looks, it did not have the sound. The deck produced rather inadequate audio. Annoying to operate. The level meters were not fit for a hifi deck. Clumsy and unreliable to operate. Plastic feel to it. I also learned, the very unit broke down twice in roughly a year, though not in very heavy use, even.
Back then, I would not have recommended the TC-800D to anyone, I considered the model more of a failure.
