If you still do a lot of cassette tape recording especially when you have a large collection of original tapes and want to preserve them by making backups, this Marantz cassette deck will fulfill that duty and more. Sounded pretty good when Dolby C is engaged but not in the same league as a CD player. All the same, this will bring back some vintage memory in all of us.
Cosmetically, there are scratches and knicks here and there. A good spray paint over the chassis cover will conceal much of it and return it to good shape. We don’t have the manual or original box but will pack it securely for safe shipping.
