Summary: I needed a new dual cassette Player/Recorder as I have a good collection of cassette tapes that need to be burned onto CD's. I bought this machine in 2012 and have been slowly transferring my cassette collection to DVD"s So far no problems.
Summary: This is an excellent tape deck. The graphics are very accurate when recording. The controls make it easy to edit tapes, playback and record. The double-reverse works well. The deck is well-made and very durable. The BEST deck I have ever owned---I have two of them.
Summary: This was used so I got what I deserved. I have another Sony just like this one that's worn out. Unfortunately, so is this one. The dubbing function doesn't work; it might as well be a single cassette player. Buying electronics online is always risky.
