I’ve had this 767 for years, found it locally in a 2nd hand shop from memory, didn’t have any cassette doors on and most of the knobs were missing. I bought what I could on eBay bit by bit to get it looking reasonable, then stuck it on a shelf in my office and left it there...
Anyway, I’ve decided it’s time to get it to actually play nicely!
Everything works, just not that well. Lights come on, tapes play fine but it sounds poor - muffled, lots of static/ crackling when you change the volume. One of the speakers has a tear in it (which had been repaired with duck tape!) and a tweeter has fallen off.
So, I’d like to start with the speakers and perhaps an overhaul of the tape decks. I’ve done lots of searching on speakers and can see people trying various options so I wondered if someone can tell me what parameters I need to stick to when looking for replacements?
I’m assuming sorting the tape decks is a matter of replacing the rubber belts and such like which have probably perished over the years, will I get away with just cleaning the heads or should they be replaced as well? Is that an easy job?
I have a 777 as well that I haven’t looked at for about 5 years. I’ll drag that out next once this one is sorted!
Any advice very much appreciated.
