The 80 is a little workhorse of a machine and is intended for mixdown. It does have two mic pre-amps on each of its two channels via 1/4" inputs, so it could be used for location recording without a mixer, although there is no onboard EQ or speaker, just a stereo headphone out via a 1/4" jack and RCA outs.
The recording quality is pretty good, but this machine is entirely mechanical, unlike it's big brother the 32. This means that there are no memory points, no real return to zero facilities, and no way to really do any editing of the tape.
This machine features three heads (erase, record, and play) meaning that the user can monitor from the tape a split second after a recording is being made. This is especially useful during mixdown because what you're hearing is literally what you're going to get as an end result. It could also be used for slap tape delay in conjunction with another recorder.
In the time I owned this machine I was very happy with it. The only issue I ever had was the capstan belt was too worn. This will be apparent by playback slowing down or even not working at all; it will not affect rewind and fast-forward.

Size of coil: 18cm
Speed dfile: 38cm/sec
8 inputs with RCA line

The music is made of good quality and reliability is excellent (although I have not had the opportunity to try other).
Its weak point, at least with respect mine, is that you clean the heads of the playback and recording rgulirement enough (some magnetic tapes tend to leave the dp t).
His report is good and qualitprix is a choice I would do without hsiter.
This is a good machine to learn trs couraging models honntes done everything.
