Bottom Line:   
one of the smartest machines out there, still rocks like in the old days. it sounds many times better than any average minidisc up to sony jb940. i don't agree with so called "professionals" who says that akai is not in the same league with nakamichi, sony, pioneer etc. or maybe i should, akai is better in many regards. THIS MACHINE NEEDS PERFECT PARTNERS.
we all know that you need to match your system to sound the way you want. i agree that mechanically is not quite up to expectations but i wasn't able to figure out a better combination to match features this machine offers with reliability. overall out of 100 points this machine deserves 90. the last advice, never listen to "experts", if you think you like the machine listen to your heart and buy it!

Bottom Line:   
Whatever anyone may say here, this piece of equipment is one of the best there was.

What deck has 4 heads and 5 motors anyway????????????
No other deck has such a large and usefull display as the GX-R99, and I mean none.

This one should be in the "state of the art" museum.

Don't even go there, with your nakamichi, it has no use.

case closed.....

Bottom Line:   
I have had AKAI GX-9 I purchased in Japan in'85 and used it every day for 10 years. Great sound with proper Amp and extremely reliable. The only maintanance required was heads adjustment . Small defect was noise at line frequency when connecting headphones directly to tape recorder-but LINE ourput signal was pure.Overall performance- good.
