    Default New Akai reel-to-reel on auction site

    Found this on an auction site - new in the box Akai GX-747 for sale. With all the sound people here, thought it might be of interest.

    Very nice, indeed! But whoever was considering the purchase would have to factor in a service. While it may (or may not) run straight of the box, non-use is a killer to old gear and so it would definitely need the care of a competent service engineer to ensure it performed as it would have, back in 1982.

    What a lovely machine though. It looks like an LED Meter version. Top of the range back in the day.
