Default EMI TR52 Stereo Transportable Tape Recorder

Anyone interested in TR52 quarter inch stereo tape recorder, free to a good home. I first acquired this machine in the late 70's early 80's, but I've not really used it for quite a few years, as I now have a Tascam 32. It comes complete with owner and workshop manuals, and correct mains lead.

Physically it's in pretty good condition for its age. The tape transport seems to still work OK as do the brakes, and it will playback in stereo, but the reproduction isn't what it was and is also a bit crackly. So it's clearly in need of some TLC to bring it back up to scratch. Electronics are all original to the best of my knowledge, and are modular. Would make a great project. Unfortunately I don't have the correct leads anymore to test the record function.

This is a heavy machine so would have to be collected. I originally brought it back from London by train, but I was a lot fitter in those days.

Great machine to play with, takes me back to my (relative) youth.

I`d have it like a shot if I were closer / had the room.

Thanks guys. I'm giving Terry a bit of time to try to arrange collection. But if that falls through I'll be in touch.

I'm expecting to make a foray southwards in a few week's time, as far as Huddersfield, but I will pass through Rosyth on the way home. If it can be dropped at my brother's place near Heckmondwike, I can get it the rest of the way.
