Vintage YAMAHA K-960 Natural Sound Stereo Cassette Tape Deck Player Silver 1980s in excellent aesthetic condition as shown. It turns on as shown and no signs of scratches or dents. It will play tapes but after a while it clicks and stops playing tapes. Would make for a great project or item to have professionally repaired. This was a high end cassette deck when released in 1981.
When Yamaha's audio engineers decided to design a truly high performance cassette deck, they didn't overlook any details. First, they chose a two-motor transport, but redesigned the system to eliminate the instabilities of conventional two-motor designs. For the record/playback head, they used the finest material available - Sendust - formed by a unique Yamaha process for absolute purity. With 5-layer core lamination and low impedance design, this head is superior to ordinary types in all respects.And for the best possible dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio, the DBX system was included. Add to this features like fine bias adjust, focus switch, metal compatibility and Dolby NR, and the result is the K-960 - a triumph of cassette deck engineering. Type: 2-head, single compact cassette deck. Track System: 4-track, 2-channel stereo.
