Technics M85 MK2
This M85 is fully functional and in good condition.
A landmark cassette recorder for the technology included in a fairly small box and excellent designwhich came well in sync with the timeframe - one which vanished all too quickly.
Driving the tape is a Quartz-locked, Direct-Drive, planar-opposed, DC brushless, slotless motor. The rotor magnet and stator coils are placed in planar opposition while the capstan (an integral part of the rotor / flywheel) is drawn toward the stator by the rotor magnet for absence of mechanical play toward the capstan thrust.
