Wandered into the Goodwill on half-price day and pick this up for nine bucks. And miracle of all miracles someone must’ve services it down the line because the belt and idler are fine and this thing just purrs. Really a nice little deck. You can just sense the quality. This may have been one of Nakamichi’s budget decks but it makes most peoples top of the line decks look cheap.Everything has a nice firm laboratory feel. I have an even listened to it yet but I’m sure it just sounds fine. I’ve got this pioneer and this Aiawa deck right now laying around And it’s time just to trash those.. Double well decks which I never liked so I think they’re going to hit the road and I’ll just stick this on my shelf even though I’ll probably never use it except for the next couple times I play with it. Which is the point of this thread: yeah streaming is easy, but I really like playing with equipment. Pushing buttons. Seeing wheels spin. Watching counters. When you get a nice machine like this you appreciate that side of audio. Anyway I just took a picture in case anyone wants to see it.
