Had quite a number of Pioneer decks, the last one had been completely restored with new caps etc. This was a RT-707, the sub compact baby that could handle only 7" tapes.
However this was still very impressive and I did have about 150 pre-recorded rock tapes, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac etc and about 50 home recorded tapes.
Interesting tape I bought was a genuine factory copy of Mirage by Fleetwood Mac that was produced in 1983, making it one of the very last batches of commercial r2r tapes made/sold.
But with all of my various sources something had to give and I sold my last deck and ALL of the tapes on USAudiomart and fleabay last year.
Sometimes still miss the SQ but not the upkeep.
