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.
Summary: Several of the internal connectors to the PCB were loose so channels were intermittent in copying between cassettes or from external sources. The PCB also needed more offset mounts to prevent bending.
Summary: It is hard to find a tape deck anymore, but this one does the job and is very versatile. The switch for replay, play or reverse is somewhat difficult to work with, but other than that, it work fine.
