Fantastic 1/2 Track machine that sent a strong message through to the established professional manufacturers like Revox - beware.... the Japanese can make professional tape decks that will not only rival you, but will beat you. I own a '74 unit with practically zero miles on the heads and in perfect out of the box condition and it sounds amazing, even at 7 1/2 ips. I love it and will never sell it. Amazing to think that in '74 this cost the equivalent of almost $10,000 in today's money!!!
