We have completely gone through it cleaning all and adjusting the head azimuth & track cross-talk for optimum performance and the best high-frequency response (not normally expected from 8-track cartridge performance). Head azimuth, track alignment, signal phase and internal output level pots all adjusted utilizing dual-trace oscilloscope and factory test tone tape. Internal playback pots also adjusted w/ O-scope. Entire transport and mechanism has been disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and de-magnetized. Program change mechanism / elevator re-lubed for trouble-free program changes. Capstan motor completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed. Flywheel / Capstan removed, cleaned, burnished / retextured and re-lubed. Flywheel thrust plate bearing surface cleaned and re-greased. New, main drive belt installed for trouble-free service. All original track indicator lamps work fine and respond to program / track changes. Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized and are in great shape. Only issues are some scuffs on the top edge of the face plate trim (see above photos). This machine would be good for burning your stereo 8-track collection to CD or simply for listening to your stereo tapes. Tape speed tested with factory 1kHz test tape for reproduction at 993Hz or 99.3%. Deck looks good and works GREAT!

Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.

 We have completely and extensively gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit.

  Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was cleaned of "varnished" lubes and re-lubed as well as the always at issue, Pinch Roller plunge assembly, re-lubed and reassembled.

Main drive belt has been replaced with NEW for trouble free service.

Replaced bad track indicator lamps, and checked the balance for function

Capstan flywheel removed, cleaned, burnished and re-lubed prior to re-install. Entire transport and mechanism has been cleaned, re-lubed and de-magnetized.

Program change mechanism and indicator contacts cleaned / burnished and re-lubed for trouble-free program changes. All original program now lamps work fine.

Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized and are in great shape.

 Head azimuth adjusted with alignment / test tape and O-Scope for best High Frequency  and channel to channel Signal Phase.

Track alignment adjusted to eliminate 'cross-talk' between tracks and to ensure the best high-frequency response (not normally expected from 8-track cartridge performance). Deck now has clear sounding highs even when using pre-recorded tapes.

Speed checked afterward with factory test tape to 99.8% accuracy! (meaning in this case, that our 1000Hz test tape plays back at 1002Hz on our Freq Counter Meter)

Deck 'sonically' checked for WOW and Flutter with no appreciable issues

Since we also burnished the program track light contacts, they all light and are responsive. Unit works and sounds GREAT

_____________________________


This is a 'players' unit, and not going to win any beauty contests. It's got a few scratches on the top of the case, and numerous dings / dents around the edge of the front bezel (see lower, right photos above). You're paying for it's performance following the above tech time, not it's attractiveness (or lack there-of). It's for 'use'n' not 'look'n' at.

 As stated above, we have completely gone through this unit, refurbishing and then testing with amazing results for an 8-track. This machine would be perfect for burning your 'Stereo' 8-track collection to CD or computer. Sounds great!  Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty. Measures 8" wide x 10" deep x 4" high and weighs 7 lbs unpacked.

Great quality 8-track cartridge play / record deck. This is a great deck for transferring a large amount of tapes to another media as it has two very important features. 'Locking' Fast Forward and Auto Stop. These features are used to find the beginning of track one without going past the beginning of the next track. Trying to do a lot of transfers, as a business without those two features will cost a lot of time / money!
   Features include:

   
  - Stereo Playback and Recording 
  - Back-lit, analog VU level meters
   - Separate L & R controls for Input / output level
   - Locking Fast Forward
   - Auto-Stop
    - Dual 1/8" microphone inputs mounted on the front panel
   - 1/4" Stereo Headphone jack
   - Rear mounted RCA I/O's

   
 
  Again, have completely gone through it making ready for playback for listening to or burning your collection.

Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit. We have completely and extensively gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit. Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled.

- Entire transport and mechanism has been disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and de-magnetized.
- Program change mechanism / elevator cleaned and re-lubed for trouble-free program changes.
- Internal Linear Record switch cleaned
- Capstan motor inspected and re-lubed.
- Flywheel / Capstan removed, cleaned, burnished / retextured and re-lubed.
- Flywheel thrust plate bearing surface cleaned and re-greased.
- New, main drive belt installed for trouble-free service.
- Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized and are in great shape.

- Head azimuth, track alignment, cross-talk, and signal phase for optimum performance and the best high-frequency response (not normally expected from 8-track cartridge performance).

- All internal playback / output level pots all adjusted utilizing dual-trace oscilloscope and factory test tone tape.
- Records great* with the following test results after adjusting heads and internal level controls; +2d @ 1kHz, 0dB w/ full bandwidth Pink Noise, and ~0dB with CD Recorded Material!

- All track indicator, meter and other indicator lamps replaced with new bulbs and respond to program / track changes.

-
Tape speed tested with factory 1kHz test tape for 98.5% accuracy.

Note: Counter disconnected. This model along with a few other Pioneer tape decks utilize a 'tape counter' that has an issue with a nylon gear that 70%+ of the time will be cracked as it's fitted to a metal shaft. Once the gear splits, it jams up and the counter sticks. Even if we were to change it, it would just happen again, so RH-65's and a couple of other Pioneer decks are sold with defunct counters.
There are two types of Pioneer 8-track tape counters. Those that have already have cracked gears and those that are just about ready to have cracked gears. The "work-around" for this is to remove the linkage belt, thus rendering the counter as a "wall flower".

This particular RH-65, #...5096 is a great recording 8-Track deck after restoration. Records great with the following test results after adjusting heads and internal level controls; +1dB @ 1kHz. Dolby circuit is exceptional sounding on this particular deck. With exception of the above mentioned counter issue and "Auto-Stop" all functions test fine and everything works GREAT!
_____________________________

Decent performing Pioneer / Centrex RH-65 8-track. Great for listening to your tape collection, burning your tapes to another media or for making "new" 8-track tapes for listening in your vintage or muscle car.


Again, we have completely gone through this unit, refurbishing and then testing with amazing "sonic" results for an 8-track. Since this unit has both "Locking Fast Forward" and "Auto-Stop", the machine would be perfect for burning your 8-track collection to CD or computer, a media transfer biz and / or making new tapes for your show / muscle car. One unique feature of this deck as opposed to many 8-tracks is that it allows monitoring of audio signal when recording. Unit looks good and sounds GREAT! Comes with a copy of the owners / users manual / spec sheet.
(Tape cartridge shown in photos not included with deck) Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty. Measures 14.75" wide x 11.5" deep x 5" high and weighs 15 lbs unpacked.

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!
