I've got an opportunity to pickup either a Teac or an Otari MX-5000 reel 2 reel player. They both function, but the Teac is $100 and the Otari is $200.00
I'm familar with Teac, and I know of a couple of models of Otari but I can't find anything about the MX-5000.
Suggestions on quality...
My unit has a strange problem.
When you use it with the digital inputs the on-board screen soon fades out to black.
Because I use it regularly like this, the screen doesn't even light up anymore.
When I used with analog inputs the screen eventually goes on, but is still unstable.
