re: GX-M30

What a great little deck this is.
This sounds way better than it should.
I'm not sure why it should sound this good as the specs don't give much away.
I also own a Akai GX-F31 and this deck sounds better to me.
This doesn't have all the fancy options like the higher-end Akai models but the sound quality is surprising good and has been a good fine for me.
This deck doesn't command a huge price tag so you can pick this up very cheaply on ebay.
The deck will not please a cassette deck fanatic but for most people the play-back is more than fine.
