Chris is in the UK, not the USA.
Some info that might help him: the azimuth adjustment on Naks is usually
a plastic wheel right next to the playback head, usually on the
right-hand side as you look at it. The way to adjust for proper azimuth
is to listen to the playback in MONO (left and right channels combined)
and tweak the azimuth wheel with a small non-magnetic screwdriver for
maximum audible treble. Sometimes this is easiest with the Dolby turned off.
PS -- to do this on most Naks you'll need to take the door off.
