Great little deck. I dragged mine out of the loft after more than 20 years and it just came to life without any problems on both record and replay and it sounds quite good too. Surprisingly none of the belts appear to have deteriorated. Lots of features including Dolby B and DBX although my preference was for everything switched off. I don't know of many other cassette tape decks which feature variable pitch. Shame this deck isn't still in production.
