I have a Denon DR171 which requires a replacement tape head due to not recording very well on one channel and showing signs of previous owner causing scratching to head-playback seems okay but could be better but at least does that in 2 channels but very poor on one channel on record despite signal through circuit and good VU meter readings for both with audio input.So if anyone has a head suitable that would be very much appreciated.

There is a unit on eBay for £30, condition unknown but it’s a complete unit by the look of, may be good heads.

Aliexpress have quite a range of replacement heads, worth a look, I have never bought from the before.
