Bottom Line:   
I bought this used over the internet back 1995, although I don't use it often but I
do on occasion use it to tape digital music from cable to play in the car and home.
I've used/owned many tape decks in years past and nothing comes close to
the Akai GX-8. It still looks and operates as NEW! When it does finally die, I'll
be done with tape cassettes, until then, I'll keep using it.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this machine 11 years ago. In my humble opinion it was Akai's best. Not a single problem over the years. Even the motorized door works! This was what I thought would be the 1st part to break. Good sound. DBX seldom if ever used because of the slight "breathing" it creates. Here's a tip to preserve the rubber capstan: Obtain Teac's/Tascam's rubber cleaner/restorer. This product is applied to the rubber roller with a cotton swab, allowed to remain for a minute and then removed with a clean swab. Available from Teac/Tascam and well worth the extra care. An excellent piece of equipment.
