Nice looking deck with the very cool tape flipping mechanism. Seems that the rubber tire on the drive wheel needs replacement as the fast forward and rewind are kinda slow. I have music out of both channels but notice an ultra high pitched sound as well. I haven't cleaned or demagnetized the heads on this unit- that is most likely the source of the noise. I haven't used it much either- only to test. That is all I can tell you other than it is a very well made deck and heavy. They sold for $800 back in the 90s. In the pic there are some spots that showed up on the play, ff, rew buttons- looks like water or some other sort of dried liquid which will wipe right off. Cosmetics on this unit are as good as I have ever seen.
