I love it since the first day I've ever seen it at a local DJ's (Aco) house in Trnava, Cacak, Serbia. I've bought it as a present for myself on my 18th birthday (now I'm 34) from him (he let me have it, because he knew I loved it) for 20 DEM. :) Best piece of electronics I've ever purchased.

The only cassette deck I ever owned, never had to upgrade for a better unit.
