I mean, decent enough in sound quality?

I can get one locally and never had a reel to reel before...

Thanks!

Why not just try it and find out?
Now that you have the chance.

just for the fun of it, they are easy to work on

Collecting Vintage B&O is not a hobby, its a lifestyle.

A good addition to the collection sir,you won't regret it.

Super build quality of course,and the tapes are still available too.

Watch out for low torque on wind/rewind.It's an induction motor,and can struggle towards the ends of tapes particularly with the larger,ie heavier reels.

Enjoy.

Hi Nick!

Unfortunately the sale is pending to another customer so I'm might not get it or I might knock at your door once again...

Are these convertible from 240VAC 50Hz to 120VAC 60Hz?

Good to see you again kicking around!

Thanks

The voltage is adjustable Charles,there is the standard carousel switch.

As the induction motor is driven directly off the supply though,I wonder if there are any considerations for tape speed.If you are buying locally to you,I imagine the machine will be North American/Canadian 60 htz spec anyway?

I must get those Beovox 2500 cubes sorted out for you too!!

Regards,

Nick

Well... yes, they were.
But I doubt that you will be able to find a conversion kit.
Much easier to find a factory 60Hz deck.
