Thank you and congratulations.

Re: Akai GX-400DSS

Hi GSdR,
Thank you for nice comment. I agree, this is very nice machine. Unfortunately, it is no longer in my posesion. In one stage I have been offered 2000 dollars for it which was very tempting as I got it for free some 7 years ago. Now this great machine has new home in Adelaide-Australia. For these money, I manage to buy two Akai's GX-635DB (as new condition) and I like them very much. GX-400DSS is a Quadrophonic version of the GX-400D. I believe both machines share very much the same specks exept - GX-400DSS can record 4 tracks (quadro) in full tape widh. In this mode the tape runs only one way - no reverse playback. However, if you swich to normal stereo mode, you can use this machine in normal auto-reverse mode as it use only two tracks each way. Apart from GX-1000 the GX-400 series is the best semi professional reel to reel machines Akai ever made. Regarding the specs, I hve them but I canot attach them to this message. I would try to upload them to GX-400DSS side in this friendly hifiengine webside.
Cheers,
Janusz
