Technics RS-1700,auto reverse,3-speed pro deck.This unit is from my own collection,it was bought from original owner who used it very little,heads are excellent & unit is in beautiful condition.When I got it,i cleaned every switch & control with Deoxit,replaced the tension arm bearings with new ones,removed & cleaned the whole head block,polished guides,oiled the tach drive bearings,oiled the counter wheels & replaced belts on counter,adjusted the brakes etc.I was going to have this pro calibrated,biased,tensions set etc.The tech I use is always backed up & now I must sell due to medical reasons.After I gave this unit a recent test ( it had not been used in a few years,as I have many more recorders ) I noticed the unit ran very quiet,played & recorded in both directions but the tape would slack a little sometimes when going from fast forward to stop or play,,so it will need a good service on brakes & tension adjusted,by someone who knows these machines,so I am selling as is.This is a wonderful machine in beautiful condition & surely worth getting tuned up.These are getting very hard to find in this condition,the beautiful wood side panels are also excellent.I really hate to have to get rid of this one.I have been collecting,buying,selling recorders for over 45 years & these are one of the finest when tuned properly.Hubs,spacers,manual & new extra set of counter belts are included,reels are not.Shipping is 85.00 to 48 states only & will include insurance,heavy duty box,lots of bubble wrap & Styrofoam.It will be shipped by FedEx.I have shipped a lot of these & know what it takes to get it to you safe.
