Service Note (1): Serviced by Absolute Electronics of Toronto, Feb. 16, 2022. Mechanically working as intended. Deck is performing normally and recording is very clear and sharp.

Service Note (2): Recently re-serviced by Klaasson Vintage Repairs of Orillia, Ontario, March 22, 2023. A glitch has been detected and it could not be repaired. The deck is not erasing a used tape with recorded music on it, in this ">" direction, but it will record beautifully on a new blank tape or "pre-erased" tape. It records perfectly in the opposite direction "<" on a used tape with music in it as it erases well. A recorded tape on this deck gives you a stunning and clear playback sound in either direction, and it also plays beautifully in other decks.
