You are looking at a vintage Pioneer RT 2044 (RTU-11 transport with JT-2044T/JT-2022T heads, plus 2 TAU-11 amps). See the deck and hear actual audio recording here: https://youtu.be/IexMJ37Dp4o
I purchased this deck from the original owner around 1981. It saw little use from him, and I used it for tracking demo tapes of my songs. It has truly seen low recording time, and is in excellent condition for its age. It has always been in a smoke-free controlled-temperature environment. I recently reconditioned my old demo tapes and dubbed them to digital files with this deck, in order to gain some much needed room.
This unit has all the original front protective covers. It is a complete, functioning unit with all the rear cables. PLUS a JT-211 Remote Control. All front I/O jacks work except for the top left mic input (see tape over jack). I think I overloaded it once. The line-in works fine. An engineer who is handy with resistors might be able to fix that jack. All the record-heads are clean. I've always been pretty persnickety about cleaning heads during production.
PLUS ... I have an extra RTU-11 with the JT-2022 head (see photos) that functions, though I've never hooked it up to the TAU-11 amp to see if it is "fully functional". This would be an extra sale item for $250. I always kept it around in case I ever needed extra parts. It also has the front cover.
I'm guessing on the weight. It could be more than 50 lbs. It's a heavy unit and probably needs to be packed really well for shipping - so the weight will probably go up. If you're local to the Seattle region, I'd deliver it.
