    Don't get me wrong, this thing is by no means transparent. Very thicccccc, punchy, warm, rated only down to 40 hz but I have some tapes that go far below that and on the Eikon the extension is effortless and easily heard.

    This unit is in perfect shape - incredible for its age. I bought it from a Nak collector who had previously owned the 600, 700, 1000, and 505. He said he sold the rest and only kept this 500 as he couldn't hear a dramatic difference in sonics compared to the 1000. I also have a 505. I think I like this older 2-head 500 better.

    kinda sad that this thing will kick the living shit out of the Brooklyn DAC+ or the PS Audio DirectStream in terms of dynamics, and I only paid 200 bucks for it and also got a free parts deck thrown in.
