RE: Want a RTR;Recommendations

To be honest, there are many great decks, and a lot depends upon what you find important. 1/2 track? 1/4 track? Plays 10.5 reels? (in my mind, VERY important.)

Because of age, many will say that whatever you buy, it will need to be gone through, which will add to the purchase price.

I have several RTR's, a TEAC 2340R, a Pioneer RT-1050, and a Technics RS-1500US.

My favorite is the RS-1500.

You might join (free) "Tapeheads" and ask there. There are many people there that will give you some great opinions, and if you wish to buy a already-restored deck, I'm sure you will find someone there who has one for sale that will meet your needs.

Good luck, tape can sound very very good!
