Hi John,

Unless you have a number of 1" 16Tr tapes to transfer, I would avoid 
this format. If you need this for a restoration or a transfer project 
then the MS-16 would be the preferred model. If you are looking for a 
tape deck to get that "analog tape" sound, I would suggest investing in 
a good used 2" 16Tr.

I actually have some history with the Teac 1" 16Tr format........I 
wasn't impressed.
