I have a counterpoint to the above statement. BarryMusic is correct that the AVERAGE cassette deck is worth about $20 bucks. You know, those piano keyed wow and flutter hiss monsters made from plastic Tupperware bins. However, the AKAI GX-F91 was at the pinnacle of cassette deck technology, just predating the release of CD. While never quite reaching the cult status of the Nakamichi Dragon or a few Studer Revox units, a drab one will easily fetch $200-$400 dollars as a PARTS MACHINE. A fully restored GX-F91 in the right market (Japan, Europe, the Middle East) can go NORTH of $1000. An all time high I saw was $1717 for a cherry machine.

I can't read your complete post title, but I'm guessing you're wondering what this unit is worth, All Akais were very high-quality and expensive machines, but of course cassette decks are not very popular these days. I'd say anywhere from $15 to $100 depending on many things, mainly which buyer you find. I would expect closer to the low end, as you can find these in thrift shops for around $15, in fully operating condition. With a new belt, alignment back to factory spec and guaranteed, you might get more for the machine - but at any rate, the cost of servicing the unit would be more than you can sell it for.

How do I connect this system together to get it to work?

The manual for the amplifier and all the other units are here. Use the search feature in the top right with just the model number 'AT-5210'. Getting the items in the right order helps. The turntable obviously goes on top. The Amplifier goes in the middle and all the other units connect to the amp.

This could be a head fault? Another possibilty is the preamp stage. You will need to look for something that would take out both channels. Such as an IC.

Make sure the cassett you are using has safety tab intact. Clean the heads and tape drive roller. If unit has a record level control, make sure it is set correctly
