Need a price point, otherwise go for a Technics 1500 or 1700.
The Technics are nice. I use a Revox A77 Mk.IV which I've modded a bit. These are very upgradeable and serviceable, as they have individual circuit boards that are easily removed. Any of these older decks need to have the electrolytic caps gone over closely, these things leak over time and usually need to be replaced.
Are your mono tapes full-track, 2-track, or 4-track? That will strongly affect your choice of tape deck.
