    Here's something BIG. The SIEMENS RC-555 from 1979. It plays really nice.

    Picked up another one at good will for $9 Sankyo STD 2000. Needs new belts and some adjustment as the cassette loads, FF and REW, but the play and record button won't move.
    I have manual for it must be some sort of adjustment needed internally when the tape is inserted.

    I'm just a sucker for the large VU meters. Just couldnt walk away. Especially if price was right. ;)
    And while pretty simple and not hugely respected - both of these decks play very well. Dont know how well they record - I dont do recording usually anyway. But their sound really did surprise me - much better than I expected:

    Very early 60's Denon tube reel to reel. Recapped, plays amazing for being 60 years old s-l1600 (1).jpg s-l1600 (3).jpg s-l1600.jpg

    My main listening room "system" which features a Marantz 5030B, teac X-1000R and a lowly Teac 4030S. They all run nicely and I enjoy seeing the electric bill. IMG_6116.jpg

    Found this computer rendering of my "new" toy. Not 100% accurate; note the metal looking pinch roller. It's a beautiful deck, though. My reproduction Akai labeled reels should arrive tomorrow. Then I'll post the real thing.

    Unpacking, I found my RTR tapes. I haven't had a working deck for over 10 year, and decided it was time!
