A high end audio cassette deck. Very nice font panel. A rare find nowadays but highly recommended. Was priced for over 1000 euro.
Introduced originally under brand ALPINE, model ref. AL-81. I have happily owned one for 25 years.



re: K-109

I would say Alpine AL-81 might have a slightly more robust font on the power button as it tend to fade less quick due to the lettering being on the frame rather than located on the button itself. Also, this is one of those decks to have PB EQ 50ms Metal, the others being Alpine AL-61, Alpine/Luxman K-109 and Luxman K-109.
