condition: excellent

Hello...I got this Otari MX-5050 a year ago from the original owner. He was a wanna be musician who recorded his own music. It sat in storage unused for years. When I got it it had an intermittent problem in one channel. The sound would come and go. I'm a good tech when it comes to complete re-caps and calibrations but an intermittent problem can make you want to pull your hair out. I took the deck to Magnetic Tape Recorder Company of Louisville, KY, I've done business with them before. They had the deck for about a month and finally found the problem. It cost me $365.00 dollars, worth every penny. I just don't use this deck. I have about 12 2 track tapes and well over 150 4 track tapes. I re-capped and calibrated my Revox A77 and it's my go to deck. I hate to see anything sit not used. I am selling as is, it is vintage audio but everything works. It comes with the original Otari take up reel, the receipt from MTRC and a The Match Box II and cables to plug and play in your system. I checked eBay and other sites and the prices are all over the board. I'm asking $750.00 US. Need more info or pictures, email me. Thank you. Fritz PS, I am willing to meet half way with in a hundred mile radius for delivery.
