Other Notes: "The new AKAI GX-280D-SS is the ultimate choice of the discriminating audio enthusiast... a 4/2-channel discrete tape deck, designed and built to uncompromising standards of quality and performance.
The story starts with AKAI's remarkably different GX (glass and crystal ferrite) heads. Unlike the pressed ferrite heads offered by other manufacturers, AKAI GX heads are comprised of a single glass coated crystal... dust free and virtually wear free. Their low noise characteristics and flat frequency response make them the most efficient heads in the world today." - Akai
