A very good tape deck the sound is amazing difficult to her any difference between recording and playback of the music. I’m using only TDK AD and SA and this is enough for me to doing great live recording from the FM radio. Very nice design and ergonomic style to, and it comes along with infrared remote control that have all the controls you ever need to handle this fantastic Yamaha KX 1200.
