  • 23,534 Hours on the Tape Heads
ACCESSORIES INCLUDED: This item comes as seen in photos and includes only the following accessories:

  • Cables for the remote


  • Empty Tape Reel

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Good - Overall it is in good solid physical condition and is mostly intact, but it has numerous small issues. The pinch roller is missing. There are scratches on the side wood panels and some light wear on the screens. The leather palm rest has several areas of heavy wear. There is tape residue on the meter bridge. The remote's finish has worn off by the remote transport controls where your hand typically lays on it. The top surface is slightly discolored. The button on the bottom left is jammed in the down position. The remote's wood sides have scratches and wear on them. The cables have a lot of dirt and dust stuck to their jackets.

Again, many small easily serviceable issues or signs of age and wear, but overall, this tape machine and its remote are in good solid physical condition.

WORKING CONDITION: Non-functional - It does power up, as indicated by the power switch illuminating and the LCD display reads 'Audio Test Activated' but does not respond to anything else, transport or track arming LEDs, none of the functions are currently operational. Pinch roller needs to be replaced. Remote doesn't seem to get any power at all. Also, it's missing all Dolby NR cards. Servicing is certainly in order to get this machine running correctly again. Overall working condition is currently non-functional.
