JFTR Gene seems not to talk about an user manual, but a service manual.
The reason that most consumer 4 track cassette recorders did sound that
disgusting, wasn't the quality of the 4 track tape decks, it was missing
maintenance. From the many musicians I know, I'm the only one who bought
a service manual for the 4 track cassette recorder. It indeed seems to
be uncommon to take a look at a service manual when something doesn't
sound ok. This might be ok for home recording, since most people anyway
couldn't use a service manual, but for professional recording a service
manual is needed. You at least want an exploded diagram of the drive.
No service manuals needed for computer CD/DVD drives, they will go to
