Reviewed Nov 02nd, 2015 by gortonandy

Cutsie DAT deck design to match mini systems of the era. Capable of good results and fully featured but probably the most unreliable DAT deck ever produced by Sony. High internal temperatures from power transistors cause leaking caps which destroy the circuit board and affect the mechanism. Only worth it if completely overhauled.
