There seems to be a few variants of this model @dBb_dBb  some with traditional piano key transport controls and others with the type jvc decks liked :) Standard dolby b model with only single capstan drive -not dual for speed stability ; later models included manual bias controls and the best upmarket ones had automatic test tones to adjust bias so upper frequencies weren't rolled off..Later models had faster led meters so you could push record levels more precisely without overloading the tape.   Different model descriptors based on where they were sold -
