Sony TC-200 Stereo Tapecorder

I got this reel-to-reel today from a relative who died. The unit was made between 1964 and 1967, as best I can tell, only it won't power up. Sony quoted me a ship-in price of $154 just to look at it with no guarantee they could get it running again. I'd like insights regarding another place I could take it to get it repaired, a reasonable price I should expect, and a general value judgment of whether this model is quality enough to invest much money into rather than buying a newer one. Thanks in advance.

TC-200

Hi... Sorry for your loss... I too was just handed a TC-200 from a friend and it is in mint condition! My question is not of the monetary value of the unit... I can see their values are all over, up & down on Ebay but I'd like to know is this unit good for anything? How is the recording quality? Anyone have experience with this model?
