This tape recorder works it just needs a channel of the playback head wiring to be resoldered. So only some of the channels will play back as of now. All of the channels played back before desoldering. The spindle for the take-up reel is slightly lopsided. It didn't really affect the recordings as far as I could tell, but causes the reel to scrape against the front cover when it's turning

One thing to note, it's 4 track but it records in stereo (2 of the 4 tracks) or quadraphonic (all 4 tracks), it doesn't have overdub functionality
