National 615 Cassette Deck

I had fun working on this one, it's an unusual hybrid between front loading and horizontal formats. The door opens slowly with the lever and eject pops the tape which then slides down to the front - very novel! You can leave the door open for fast tape changing.

Fully rebuilt with new belts and rubbers, no wear to head.
Frequency Response: 30Hz to 15kHz
Signal to Noise Ratio: 63dB (dolby B)
Wow and Flutter: 0.10%
