    I have a (defunct) Akai Vs-75EK but have sevetral tapes recorded on it
    that do not play well (stereo sound wise) on more modern machines so
    I'm looking for a working replacement; I'm assuming no one out there
    has one but I have been told later Matsui models were based on it (ie
    using the same electronics and heads). Does anyone, by any chance, no
    which model number(s)?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    I don't think that is true. Matsuis were usaully funai or orion,
    pretty grim. just keep trying various hifi vcrs, you will find one
    with enough tracking range to play your tapes.

    A possible workaround if the tapes are of personal value, is to have
    them transferred to DVD by a professional transfer house.
