Ha! I have that very Sanyo deck! Have had it since it was new, and no, it's not a high end deck by any means.

I think my parents paid all of $60 for it new in 1986 for my birthday and comes with captive interconnects.

As these decks go, it's not a bad deck though mine is all out of whack electrically speaking in that around the very late 80's to early 90's being much younger then than I am now, I just had to muck with the pots inside...

So now it's in need of a good calibration, meters and all but it still plays tapes though, well the last time I did so, I think last year and I think it may be a tad slow now.

Nice photo!

Dang, I wish you'd have caught me sooner. I'd be totally willing to calibrate yours if I could compare it against mine, but this photo was actually for an ebay auction and I just recently sent the deck away to its excited new owner. I have many more tape decks in the house, and I felt sad seeing this one go unused and in such great condition so I sold it to someone who will hopefully get a lot of use out of it

That's OK, the Sanyo is not my main deck anymore, I now have a Nakamichi BX 100 that is in good working order and is my main deck in my main system.

Nice! The BX 100 is a slick looking deck. I've never gone out of my way to purchase a tape deck, so my main deck is a Sony TC-FX310 that I picked up for free. It's not very high end, and it doesn't even sound that good but it's my proudest achievement because of all the work I had to do to get it to play again. It was all out of whack electronically and the mechanism was the definition of "busted." I took that thing apart down to every last gear and lever possible. As such it's one of the two decks that I could never get rid of, the other being a sharp rt-110, which was my first real tape deck.

How do you like the Nak? I've heard rumors of a "Nakamichi-only bias," is that true?

I really liked their ULTRX line that was produced in the early 1980s. I had an automatic servo deck, RD C41 which had fantastic sound. It even had DBX noise reduction. Unfortunately, I think something burned out in the motor drive as I could not get it to function at all after a few months of use (I bought it from Goodwill in 2006).
