+...I have bought in 1974 - X'mas time. (usd 193.-) Recorded hundreds of records. Once -in 1978- Pinch Roller changed. That's all. In 1987 upgraded to another brand (Nakamichi BX-125). But i have always missed Akai. In these days i took it from dusty shelves to check. It runs with all functions but sound is very slow. Not from the belts. Decided to take it to service whatever the cost. Hope it will be ok.....
