This wasn't used by the previous owner, so arrived with almost no usage on the meter (0 operation, 0 LCD, 5 power on). It has some scratches on top cover and rear due to transportation in the facility, but not from actual usage. So internally it is new, but shows some minor wear on exterior. This sold new at most retailers for around $23,000. So this is a steep savings indeed. This is the big daddy of P2 decks, a rare find in this kind of nearly un-used demo condition.

Has an internal SD downconverter (to SD-SDI, component, or composite).

Some cosmetic scratches on top cover, but overall clean. This has moderate hours of use: Drum 1735, tape 1262, thread 5770. reel shift 1516. The tape transport and elevator are in pristine condition, just thoroughly cleaned internally with new pinch and cleaning rollers installed in preparation for sale. It didn't really need service to function well, but we like to do preventative service to make sure it will be reliable for the buyer. We have loads of experience with tape decks and J-series players and specialize in properly testing them. Many of these are sold by remarketing and asset recovery companies with no real experience with this type of equipment - who just power them up and maybe quickly pop in a tape if they have one, who then call this "tested and working". We have years of specialized experience in the broadcast field and have been in this industry since back when only tape-based machines were sold. Excellent working condition, all functions tested in proper working order.
