Otari MTR-90

I've been thinking about aquiring a 2" machine for a while now, and I have a chance to get an Otari MTR-90 2" 24 track with locator in fully functional condition with good head life for $2250. If this were a MK-III or MK-IV, I wouldn't be asking, as it would already be bought and paid for. Honestly, I'm not really ready for full integration into my setup just yet, (I'm DAW + outboard right now, i.e., no real console) but if it's a killer deal, I'd rather get the machine first and grow into it later. Also, I'm a pretty geeky guy who will be willing and able to do the work to keep the machine in proper order. Anyone work with this machine and can speak to it's sound quality and reliability? Is it a steal?

The MTR90 MkI was a dog. The MTR90 MkII was a good and reliable machine, though it does colour the sound somewhat.
