    has anyone ever used or heard anything about AKAI 1730D SS? I bought this reel to reel unit at a yard sale for $5. It's in pretty good condition, so I'm wondering if there's any possiblity to sell it, I'll never use it.
    thanks,
    Coop

    Well, you could always use it to record a pop star and then sell it afterwards for top dollar :cool:

    How is the condition? have you surfed ebay to see if they have something like it?

    well, the body condition is great, but I think because of it's age it needs a couple belts replaced. I plugged it up and the lights and the vintage VU meter works great.
    Actually, I'm bouncing back and forth from their now. I've seen a couple prices jumping around and it's giving me a few ideas on price.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=67810&item=5749735528&rd=1&tc=photo

    My guess is max. $200 in working condition, unless you are a good storyteller...
