Bottom Line:   
Have just bought this unit from cash converters for £28.00, and i am totally stunned on the music sound quality coming out of it, this must be my best hifi bargain ever!
The unit itself was a graded unit, there is not a mark on it, and i got the actual instructions booklet too, in its original box.
I cannot hear any hiss coming out of the speakers, i have got it plugged into my cambridge azur amplifier, with wharfdale diamond speakers.
I have been wanting a deck for some time as you can buy audio cassetes for as little as 10p each at the charity shops, but the only ones i saw were sony for £190.00, and i have always been put off of going down the seconhand market.
I just love the motorised cassete ejector, it automatically knows what type of cassette you have put in
it just oozes quality.
Now i must try and get a remote control for it.

Bottom Line:   
I've had this deck for nearly 8 years now and not so much as a hiccup, still makes recordings just as good as the day I got it. Yes there are better machines out there I know but for the money and I believe you can now buy it for little over £100 it's a fine machine. Plenty of functions available, although it doesn't have manual bias. Still, the auto calibrate is fairly good depending on what make cassette you use, nice touch with the powered door open and close. One handy feature with this deck is after about a second of ff or rew, the speed goes into overdrive making quick work of searching, quite useful! Also it's remote control too if you really feel the need to purchase a remote handset, sadly it dosn't come with one. The overall build quality is pretty good too. At the moment I use this on my 2nd setup in the bedroom which used to be my only setup, now I have the better stuff, Rotel,Arcam etc.
It's a deck I'll always keep hold of though even if only to be brought downstairs to be linked up to the yamamha kx580se for tape to tape recording, which my wife as a school teacher finds useful for work. Definitely stands the test of time this machine, would certainly recomend.
