Nakamichi LX-5

High Spec Cassette Deck

Having had a full Nakamichi service three years ago, this superb machine is in full working order and operates like new. Physical condition is very good (see close-up pictures) but there are some scuff marks on the top of the case where other equipment had been placed on top.

If you’re looking for one of these lovely machines it’s unlikely you’ll ever see one operating as well as this one does.
