These recorders have separate record and playback heads, so when you are recording you can monitor the input signal (DIRECT) or the off tape (TAPE) signal that has been recorded, this confident monitor switch saves you from having to keep playing the tape back to check the recording. If recording from an open microphone it is best to use closed headphones, like the Sennheiser HD25 when monitoring of tape, or you will hear the direct and of tape signals and you could get feedback

There is nominal head wear on the machine and it is setup and biased for Agfa, BASF PER 368 or 468 tape and the sound quality and levels between direct and off tape are identical. A roll of BASF 368 tape is supplied with this recorder, this roll of tape has been used to adjust the Bias, EQ and levels, it now has a test tone and some music for you to test on the recorder, you can cut this off of the roll and keep it as a test tape or record over it.

(Batteries and ATN power supply are not supplied with this recorder) but a SMPS power supply is supplied and can be exchange for an ATN type power supply

There is nominal head wear on the machine, But the only problem with this recorder is the damage to the pespex lid at the hinges,

Slide out this pin to remove the lide

Above is the damage to the Perspex lid and one side had to be taped out to larger screws, I don't have another lid to fit this recorder at the moment, but the glue is holding it ok and it is useable.

This recorder has a 3rd center track that puts the time a date in the tape, this can be used to sync with a camera or added to the computer recordings for editing or just quick finding tracks

The information on time code set-up on the bottom of the recorder, the battery box and the back of the recorder are in good and undamaged condition
