Up for sale is a 1964 Akai Cross Field X-355 Reel to Reel. This unit has on-board solid state speakers which was cutting edge in 1964. Turns on properly and the buttons are functioning. When you power up the speakers it makes a pop sound, but this only occurs when you are turning them on. Volume knobs are poppy/fuzzy but only when you are dialing them. Head probably needs a cleaning. A full service diagnostic check would be a smart thing to do just to smooth things out for regular usage. Cosmetically it is in beautiful condition. Was sitting in my grandfather’s attic for years. Condition is fair considering the fact that I have not tested it with actual tape. If you have any questions, please contact me.
