Akai GXC-46D

Vintage Cassette Deck

From mid 1970’s, here is a really nice vintage machine, in full working order and wonderful physical condition. This shows little sign of previous use. Everything works like new. Fast Forward & Rewind whizz through like a train and record & playback are perfect.

This comes with its original microphone pair, acrylic dust-cover and a print-out copy of the user manual. The only cosmetic imperfection is some scuff marks on the acrylic dust-cover. Apart from that it’s pretty much as new.
The following information from the excellent hifiengine.com website:-

“The most perfect cassette recording in the world today is attained with the GXC-46D. It combines Akai's exclusive automatic distortion reduction system with Dolby to eliminate all high frequency distortion above 8kHz. Fully equipped with tape selector switch, over level switch for high volume recording, automatic stop, pause control and two heads, including Akai's exclusive GX recording/playback head.”
