Surprisingly good. Once I saw great looking piece of equipment. So I compared it to higher GXC model and to some other tape decks. This one was surprisingly good so I bought it.
It is not my main tape deck, but I like it a lot. If you do not have cassette deck and You want to have one buy this. If you have more and you like it buy it also?. Maybe that’s why I have so much gear.
