    Thanks _ I forget to look at the old forums but I’ll have a look.  I’ve not opened it up yet but I’ve been playing around with it- it does at least play, and record, and it appears to play at the right speed.  If I plug headphone into it the sound quality is still pretty muffled, but the loud hum that i get if I connect it to my Beocenter is not there when I listen via headphones.

    The DIN cable is really old and worn (it may be original!) so I will replace that first, then give the heads a proper clean, then it’s trial and error from there.  I don’t have a demagnetiser for the heads but I may buy one.

    I have no practical use for a reel-to-reel tape recorder of course, but it does look very cool!  I’ve stood it up next to my other equipment (it has clever swivelling legs on the back that help it stand up).  It would be nice to get it working better but it’s not the end of the world if I can’t.
