Ebay is a fine place to look, but you will want to pin down your
requirements for features and quality first. For example, there is a
substantial difference between a four-track stereo deck and a four-track
deck, sometimes designated quadrophonic, with all four tracks accessible
concurrently. If you want the deck for playback only, availability should
be higher and cost lower than if you want a competent recorder as well. If
you are dealing with old tapes which may not have been stored ideally, you
may put a premium on tape handling even at the expense of audio quality.
