this is a great sounding feature loaded deck, replaced the belt and works fine, except this one has an intermitent problem, the meters work fine but sometimes when playing a cassette the meters will peg all the way to the limit and stay there, so will the dynamics meter, it does this mostly with tapes i have recorded on it, if someone knows why it does this please contact me darrkwing9@yahoo.com. other than that it looks great with rack handles too, love the looks of three VU meters awesome. It gets a 9 because of this, other than that a deck without this issue would be a 10

I just bought a deck CT-F700, Pioneer. The mechanics did not work anymore. I replaced belts, cleaned and greased all the mechanics parts. Just turned on the deck and the electronic part works flawlessly, after it has been left unused for about 12 years. This deck is a reliable device with a great sound.
