SHIPPED TO CANADA

We have completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this unit. Entire front panel removed. Most mechanics, disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed. Capstan burnished & cleaned. Rubber pinch roller removed from arm and  reconditioned. Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport. 'Direct Drive' capstan so no main belt utilized. New counter belt installed. Nylon 'Fast Wind' drive wheel re-knurled. All internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function. Floor noise tested w/ the following results; 00.7mvAC on R and 00.7mvAC on L. All fluorescent displays and LED's working fine. Both spindles in perfect alignment. FF, REW, & Play transport functions all test perfectly and controls positively responsive. Eject door 'scissor' mechanism COMPLETELY disassembled, cleaned of old lube and re-lubed with fresh 500,000 wt Silicone fluid and now operates smoothly. Heads in good shape as well, with many years of performance left in them and head alignment / azimuth has been adjusted with factory 10kHz, Sony alignment tape and O-scope for peak performance. Playback level and meter 'micro pots' adjusted to 'even' with factory test tone tape. Plays perfectly and records well on normal bias, Maxell UR tape @ +2dB with no NR, +2.5 Dolby B and w/ CrO2 tape; no NR =0dB & +1.5dB w/ Dolby (we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy). Pinch roller and heads all in GREAT condition!!! Both level meters playback even. Speed adjusted to 100% accuracy with 1kHz factory test tape. Only issue we could not address is the cassette well back lamp as we could not source a correct replacement. Face is made of beautiful brushed aluminum, and is in good condition. Deck looks great!

SHIPPED TO PENNSYLVANIA

We have completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this unit. Entire front end removed and disassembled along with the complete transport assembly. Most mechanics, disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed. Both capstan flywheels removed. Capstan's burnished, cleaned and re-lubed prior to re-install. Both rubber pinch rollers removed have been reconditioned while transport was removed. Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport. Main flywheel belt reconditioned. New counter belt installed. All internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function. The only thing we did not address was the 'well window lamp' as it was not 'monetarily practical' to replace (means it would have added an hour / $75 to the final price). All fluorescent displays and LED's working fine. Both spindles in perfect alignment. FF, REW, & Play transport functions all test perfectly and controls positively responsive. Eject door mechanism operates smoothly. Heads in good shape as well, with many years of performance left in them and head alignment / azimuth has been adjusted with factory 10kHz, Sony alignment tape and O-scope for peak performance. Azimuth verified for BOTH directions and remained consistent. Playback meters zero with factory test tone tape. Plays perfectly and records well on normal bias, Maxell UR tape @ 0dB with no NR, Dolby B or C and at -2dB with dbx. With CrO2 tape we were able to adjust within -2dB with no NR (we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy). Pinch roller and heads all in GREAT condition!!! Both level meters playback even. Speed adjusted to 100% accuracy with 1kHz factory test tape. Balance of deck cleaned inside and out with a full cosmetic detailing. Deck looks, works and sounds great!

We will be getting more machines ready over the next few days to a couple weeks, but it is a slow process, as every 20+ year old Reel to Reel tape deck requires 10-18 hours of service to be brought back to "usable" condition. Check back often as they will sell out quickly!
