The on deck B sticks ever so slightly but not enough to be a concern. Far superior to other brands of this era.
Audio sample is available upon request. We work very hard to bring these units up to a quality that could surpass even it's factory brand new original sound quality. However, this is not a new deck. It's still an analog technology, it still suffers from unwanted noise, it still eats a tape from time to time. These are flaws of the format and not necessarily an indication of a faulty cassette deck.
We test our cassette decks for several hours using a combination of very old, worn tapes, new old stock tapes, pre-recorded original tapes, and custom made tapes from our own new tape stock. Only when a deck can make it through a test cycle without any major issues, and without eating a tape, do we post them for sale. Despite all this, it will still eat a tape from time to time. We DO NOT guarantee your tapes will work. The item "Pioneer CT-W802R Stereo Cassette Deck With Dual Deck Recording REFURBISHED" is in sale since Tuesday, September 1, 2020.
