What you are looking at is one of top end Cassette Decks ever produced, the Alpine AL-85. This is basically a re-branded Luxman K-04, except that the color is Alpine black and of course, has the Alpine logos. This was released right in the middle of the Luxman Acquisition by Alpine.
Cosmetically, condition is phenomenal with no major dings, dents of scrapes. Functionally it is fantastic. Bias adjustment, recording, playback, fast forward and rewind all work without any issues. THE ONLY issue to note is that the counter LED readout has gone out. I'm not sure how easy or costs for fix.
Usually the needles on the VU meters are the first to fail on these decks, but this one has the meters working great. It's a rare and phenomenal sounding deck for both playback of well recorded tapes and for making your own high quality recordings using hi-grade tapes.
Only reason I'm selling is I have another one.
Asking price is negotiable.
