One of only a handful of models that get auto-reverse right. Like the Dragon, it's in a category pretty much by itself. I'm a huge fan of Pioneer Decks and many of them compete successfully with many of Nak's offerings. But the fact remains that Nak was the target that Pioneer had to aim for and (usually) not the other way around. With the exception of the orange cap syndrome, Naks also seem to hold up without major restoration issues longer than many of their competitors. YMMV.
