Pioneer Rt-909 Reel To Reel Recorder Player Stereo Tape Deck
I purchased this unit from a friend of mine who simply didn't have any use for it. My intentions were to record some of my favorite vinyl for long play listenings. Long story short, I never found the tome to start the appreciation process and the unit has been boxed up collecting dust.
I'm not that familiar with reel to reels decks and this is what I know about this unit.
All the lights and buttons function properly. I did notice the "tape counter reset" button is missing but it will reset itself once the power is turned back on.
As far as performance, both reels spin in "fast" mode in both directions. However, when I press play in either direction the reels will not move. I hear and feel them wanting to move but still no movement.
I opened the cabinet and everything looks original with no problems. It is dusty and looks like it can use a very good cleaning though. The physical condition is very clean with very minor markings on various spots. As you can tell from the pics she's still very presentable. I am selling the unit as-is because of my limited knowledge on these units.
