Hi all,

Am putting up for sale this Akai 1710 R2R deck with Single End Valve/Tube amplifier. Am selling as this deck is now becoming surplus to my requirements. The deck is without any repairs and the OPTs are with ORIGINAL WINDINGS.

I have carried out minor mods to use this as a power amplifier where the built in pre-amp with tape equalization is bypassed and the line input signal is fed directly to the power amp. This mod is easily reversible.

I am not interested in making any profit on this. My only wish is that this goes to a serious audionut who shall appreciate and enjoy this fine example of vintage audio equipment.



PRICE : Rs 6000/- (packing and shipping extra at actuals)

Thanks for looking

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  5. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  6. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  7. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  8. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  9. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Wish to confirm the following.

I shall give two 7 reels free with the deck.

The original cover is available and shall be supplied with the deck.

Clarification about the modification :
The MINOR MODIFICATION to the deck consists for disconecting the input signal cable from the TRANSISTOR PRE-AMP and connecting it directly to the VALVE / TUBE POWER AMP.
This is a simple mod that allows the deck to be used as an SE amp with sources such as CD player or turntable. This mod can be easily reversed by the buyer any time he wants to. I can also do it before shiping the item. This mod is an accepted audiophile practice and is NOT TAMPERING with the deck in any manner.
Defination of tampering :
tamper - definition of tamper by The Free Dictionary
