A very nice sounding deck! Double-well recording, Dolby B, C, S, auto reverse, FLEX - it's all there, even a wireless remote control. The reasons I give it 7/10 is for it has only one motor per transport hence a relatively high W&F, which is a shame for such a good sounding deck, and a
cheap plasticky feel to it. Also a little dark, hard-to-read display.

Can't believe how good this sounds.
FLEX helps boost the highs on poorly recorded tapes.
Super Auto BLE makes good recordings on even cheap ferric tapes.
With Dolby S things are nearly silent.
The only thing that lets it down is that operationally it is noisy - horrible plasticky clunks!
But really delivers sonically.
