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.

I've fully rebuilt it with new belts and rubbers, and upgraded it with a new glass type head - very good playback performance.

Frequency Response: 30Hz to 15kHz (Cr02 tape, playback to 20k with metal)
Signal to Noise Ratio: 63dB (dolby B)
Wow and Flutter: 0.10%
