    Other than the silver face, it appears to be the same as the CT-S88R, which is a good thing. I thoroughly enjoy my 88R. To tell the whole truth, though, I like the silver face better.

    Just finished a light restoration of an Akai 4000D. It needed heads lapping, plenty of lubrication, pots deoxiting, and replacement of pinch roller and control levers.

    Big thanks to @audiojones for sending a box of bits from the US :)

    Need to take better photos, this was right after I got it running and hadn't cleaned it up nice. Also have A Teac A 4010S I just broke open plus a I've barely looked at. Anybody know anything about those? It's kind of sharp looking but I can't find anything on them.

    Got this about a week ago. Played great the first time i used it. Then a couple days later the VU 's went crazy . The right one buried the needle. I messed with

    output knob and it got a little better. I 'll open it back up and Deoxit the pots . :)

    I hate when you buy something and then it doesn't work later, bought a pioneer 115 turntable off eBay restored 4 months later auto return quit working took for repair they said about 230 to complete repair it. They bought it from me for 75.00. Tried again bought a restored pioneer 516 A couple steeps up from 115 so for now all is well. Good luck with your deck

    Someone mentioned 8-tracks. I cleaned up and got working my old Muntz 4- and 8-track player and installed it in my 1959 Volvo 544.

    Sony TC-186SD, nothing fancy and has a hum in one channel. I've been after a wood case, silver front tape deck though and as it was free I figured why not :)

    Nice Teac 1250 in the photo. I recently swapped out reel hubs on mine to use the twist lock style. Love the clean design and auto reverse!

    Geno, I found an A-4010S at a thrift store a couple weeks back. Its my first reel-to-reel and will be my first big project. I'm going to work in stages (functionality -> optimization -> mods). Just ordered belts for it, but am really shooting in the dark.
