I bought this from owner that had in storage for decades. It will need to be restored. I have some Elcasets too. I was able to play a tape.The deck listed below is the one on my listing. I connected it straight into the monitor. It fast forward, rewind and played sometimes (Very finicky) It did eat 2 tapes as I was testing so DO NOT put your tapes in without restoration. I do not know what all it can do. I will send a used tape so you can test AFTER your restoration. The item "Sony EL-7 Elcaset Deck" is in sale since Monday, May 24, 2021.
