Used cassette player in good cosmetic condition with normal signs of use/age.
Comes with AC power cable. VU Meters light up (when 'Check Light' is pressed) and appear to work.
Unit keeps stopping on playback and only occasionally wants to rewind or fast forward, it could just be in need of new belts but we are lisiting it for parts/repair as we are not sure.

The KD-2 is one of the lightest and most portable cassette tape decks on the market. It weighs only 8.8 lbs or 4.0 kg. with batteries, so you aren't flattened with fatigue if you have to carry it on your shoulder for extended hours in the field.
Its basic features are nearly identical to those on the KD-1636 Mark II, but here's a brief rundown:
The KD-2's core-less DC motor features reduced power consumption, lighter weight and stable performance against voltage drops. And it operates on only four D size batteries, external 6VDC or household AC power sources.
There are also a Master Record Volume Control for fade-in/out and a 3-Position Input Switch (Line, Mic 0dB, -20dB).
VU meters are extra large, well damped and linear responsive over a wide range, and a headphone amp is built in for on the spot monitoring.
