I had a very good[Pioneer] deck from way back in the late eighties,but let it go when one of the doors wouldn't open shoulda had it fixed.

Maybe with rose tinted spectacles, but really loved my ARC SP14 and Classic 60 pairing. Stunning with my CLS’s.
Technically, what I have now should be 20+ years improvements, but not too sure!

I regret selling my mint Technics RS-BX828 3-head cassette deck about 10 years ago for pennies before the cassette revival. At the very least, had I kept it & sold it today I could have asked a lot more money for it considering the very low hours on the heads. C'est la vie. In the future I might look around for a Nakamichi 1000ZXL Limited Edition in good shape & send it to Willy Hermann for a thrice over.

I should have never sold my Nakamichi 682ZX - I find it the most beautiful of all Naks, far more than my Dragon (pictures are not mine, but they do it justice)

Nakamichi Dragon CT self centering Turntable with a extra Forsell air bearing arm. Did not have the original box anymore and dumped it in the garbage when
i moved back to Europe. Stupid move, would have loved to at least have the centering system for TT project.

That is a very nice looking deck. To add insult to injury, when I sold my Technics deck I threw in a pack of 6 new/sealed Thats MR-X90 Pro cassettes which I could have sold for almost $250AUD today. Live and learn.

I like it too. In the Technics line, I really adored the top offering, the M95. Bought one from ebay a few years ago and what I got had nothing to do with the description, and had to return it. But it was just stunning ; stock picture:
