Nice looking Otari MX50...

Mine was the Otari MX5050 MKIV similar to the photo above that I destroyed the electronics on it when one day I decided to use too much deoxit to clean it up. I thought I was being careful when I was cleaning it, however, I didn't know that some of the liquid leaked inside the electronics module. Needless to say, when I turned it on again I smelled something funny and then nothing... What a waste as I always loved that machine. Oh well live and learned I suppose.

BTW, the 3-prong wall socket on the wall behind the Otari is that an M.E.S DOUBLE SOCKET OUTLET 2 x 3-pin outlet 250V AC 16A I thought they only use that kind of wall socket in Europe.

If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing well
