Best Tape Deck I have ever owned..Had a bunch of
Sony's over the years that where quite competent but this one is much more sophisticate although much more complicated to service.



re: GX-747DBX

Looking for a audio repair shop that can do restoration work. Can anyone give me any suggestion.

re: GX-747DBX


Does anyone have a full audio board for this type of tape recorder? Also a heads block might be of interest as well.

I need some parts. I need A back plate, the plastic heart shaped cover plate, and the remote control RC 21. I'm a vet and on disability so I can't pay top price. Please let me know if you find something like this please let me know. Thanks a lot
