Turn heads with this Panasonic RQ-L30 cassette player/recorder and vintage-inspired orange headphones. Take a break from digital media and live in the moment. Rewind, fast-forward, flip the tape, watch it spin. Listen to an album all the way through. Slow down and embrace the analog experience that is music on magnetic tape.

This Model RQ-L30 has been completely disassembled and inspected by our team of skilled technicians. The drive belts, idler tires and pinch wheels have all been replaced. The playback speed has been painstakingly calibrated, the volume potentiometer has been deoxidized and the tapehead has been clean and demagnetized. All outer housings have also been polished. 

Please note: This player/recorder plays from both headphones. However, the stereo signal is combined into a single mono signal. Be aware that if you're listening to a cassette has stereo mixing (panning) it will not be evident when played in this unit.

This little player had an entire life before Retrospekt. It will show signs of previous usage, but it is guaranteed to be working, clean, and restored.
