this is my favorite one. it came from a thrift store in arizona for just a few bucks. the sound quality is really good, plenty of bass. it plays just a little slow which is actually pretty cool. it had one cracked transport button, but i fixed that with some epoxy and a clothespin. cleaned the heads and pinch roller and boom. it runs on 8 D batteries. the five band graphic EQ is pretty hep. i could just listen to this thing for the rest of my life. it's so fun.
