    I just got myself a used Nakamichi MR-2 tape deck. Problem is, they do not have the user's/owner's manual.

    Does anyone either have this manual or otherwise know where I can find one, free if possible.

    Is their a certain feature you are curious about? I bought one without a mnual...never had a problem operating everything myself.

    A spec perhaps?

    Nah - I don't have one.

    It's a piece of junk anyway - just sell it to me for $5 and I'll dispose of it properly. (Racked right next to my preamps... :lol: )

    Seriously though - what's the issue? It's a pretty straight forward machine. Get it calibrated and tuned-up and you'll have a machine that, IMO sounds a lot better than some of the digital recorders out there nowadays. It's a great deck for on-location, straight to 2-track stuff.

    I am unfamiliar with the following features:
    1) EQ (uSec) 120/70 - switch
    2) MPX filter - switch
    3) Bias Tune - rotary knob
    4) Master Fader up/down - switch

    You are right in that it is a rather straight forward machine to operate, and I feel that it's well worth the $90 that I paid for it. Whether it is calibrated or not, I do not know - is this something I can tell without having a professional inspecting it ?

    Either nobody knows these features in question, or folks got outraged by a member of RO not knowing such basics . . .
