I am the original owner of this very well cared for classic Nakamichi Dragon with original double box packing materials. I checked all the features and everything appears functional. Cosmetically this is like new; there are no scratches or worn lettering on the front . The top and sides have very minor scuffs from moving hardware around.
As you know, this was the pinnacle of cassette technology; easily matching open reel performance. Auto reverse, auto azimuth, bias calibration, auto fade, etc.
This deck is a dual voltage model. I bought it from the Marine Corps PX in Okinawa. Nakamichi serviced this deck and along with a full calibration, replaced the belts, pinch rollers, RCA jacks and conversion to a removable IEC power cord several years ago. It's probably time to run this through all the fine calibration procedures, again. These are the hot rods of the industry; precise tuning yields high-performance results that will please for many years to come.
I don't have the time for this hobby any longer. But hopefully you do and recognize what a gem you'll be getting with this highly desired classic hardware.
Box is in less than perfect shape from age. I will double box to assure safe packaging. Based on the method of shipping the buyer chooses I will calculate shipping and handling costs.
Tape deck is sold as-is.
