Both the a and b 77 are quite old at this point. Revox used pretty crappy capacitors made by Frako. I would not power up the recorder before replacing all of those caps even if they look good. At 500 it's a good deal I guess. They are good decks and the sound is not bad.
If a stupid word substitution made you laugh, thank my lacing iPhone
