A friend of mine called me yesterday... he had been helping a friend of his clean out the house of the friend's father who recently passed. He had called to ask me if I wanted an old R t R tape recorder that they found in a closet. I told him that I absolutely did, that I'd love to see what he had. What I found amazed me. A Sony 630TD 2 track deck, in as close to mint condition as you would find for a deck built in 1970. My guess is that it had been used maybe twice. LOL... It came in the original box, the owner's manual was still sealed in a brown paper wrapper. This deck is in magnificent shape. I know, however, that I will need to go over it, because while it wasn't used much, it's still been sitting a long time. My thoughts are capstans, pinch rollers, etc. This was a beautiful consumer deck at the time, when record labels were still releasing commercial albums on 1/4" tape. I'm looking for ward to giving it a going over later today, and I'll take and post some pics. You guys won't believe the condition this machine is in!
