Akai GXC-325D


The GXC-325D GX head unit is made of the very finest materials and incorporates the very latest in recording and playback techniques.

Also incorporated into this model is Akai's superior ADR (automatic distortion reduction) system.

This changes the recording equalizer characteristics according to the signal level of a certain frequency band to achieve low distortion over an extended frequency range.

This together with many other outstanding features, including a 3-head system featuring Akai's wear free GX-heads, combine to bring you the finest in cassette recording and playback.

re: GXC-325D

I found an Akai GXC-325D cassette deck at a yard/estate sale.
They were selling everything for cheap so I bought it for $5.
I Had no idea if it worked or not so I took it home and plugged it in and IT WORKS!
It was really dusty so I cleaned it up and it is near perfect condition.
I have been searching for information on it and it seems to be fairly rare in the U.S.A.
It has some fun features like the little lights that chase back and forth while you are rewinding.
Very fun find!
