    Akai 4000 ds make sound issue

    I did think about alignment. But couldn't find any info regarding this. It's been a few years since the unit has been used. I have tried recording and playback is still muffled on 2 separate hifi outputs.

    Akai 4000 ds make sound issue

    Sound seems low and slightly muffled on this system. It's been stood for a while. Replaced the belt. Gave it a clean. But the sound seems low and muffled. Cleaned the heads and ran a couple of reels through. Seems to be getting slightly better but any ideas on how to improve or fix this TIA
