Excellent deck that can still be maintained - I was able to buy new heads in 2014. Solidly made. I do not use the memory functions which I find less than ergonomic, but the rest of the controls are excellent, and the sound is crazy good on all tape types.

re: 122

One of the best Cassette Decks ever made with all the controls and adjustments required for Pro use.
After many years of use the head azimuth adjustment screw was worn to the point where it wasn't possible to use a phillips screwdriver so I had to replace the screw.
This deck performs like the first day it was manufactured especially with metal tapes that have been recorded from a CD or 320k MP3's. Truly sensational and thank you Kone and AlcatrazBR for uploading the Mk3 manuals.
