Stereo Cassette Deck Technics M216, Made in Japan
This deck looks very good except some minor scratches on the metal lid. It's a typical consumer deck, much plastic, except of the lid, which is metal, as I already said. I include it here in my catalog because I like the good clean sound it had when I tested it. I had some problems, though, it can obviously emit a background noise while playing, but that went away when I fiddled a bit with the input select and the record button, also cut off the power a few times. But I think if you're not afraid to 'reboot' a machine, and if you want to play back some tapes just occasionally, this is the tape deck for the costcutter.
I took off the lid, the inside looks very clean. I took a look at the heads, they look also very good, so does the capstan. This deck was not used a lot, it seems. So again, take it for the cheap price. As always, tape decks are only sold in Switzerland, and you must be a customer of Calypso Now, means you buy or have bought our cassettes. Thank you.
