I am selling my fantastic Marantz (Gold Series) SD 72 high end Cassette Deck (circa mid 90's). This unit functions absolutely flawlessly. From a 100% smoke and pet free environment.
A three head / dual motor tape mechanism who's playback sonic's are phenomenal. I just cleaned the heads and the transport well. Belts are supple and quiet. Tape-well door opens and closes super smoothly and quietly. ~ ~ Cosmetically the unit is in Very Good condition; I am giving this an 8/10 because -the only slight flaw >>> is the wearing-off of a tiny bit of the faux-Bakelite texture on the steel side panels in the front corners (see photos). Most metal finishing companies can re-do this texture or remove it totally and polish the side panels (which I've seen done, and it looks fantastic when finished), again, other than that, it's cosmetically beautiful. ~ ~
I do not have the original box or the original owners manual (but it should be able to be found online on HiFi Engine). ~ ~
