  1. I'm on the hunt for a 2nd cassette deck

    CD Players | Turntables
    I snagged this gem (below) 2 years ago for $50. I'm totally smitten with its performance. Now I'm on the hunt for a 2nd deck but it needs to have dbx NR facility on it as the tapes I'm making now with the Yamaha employ dbx. Does anyone here or know of anyone who has a cassette deck they want to...

    Did you own and use a head demagnetizer? Have you noticed a difference with high frequency reproduction before and after use or is this one of those mythical audiophool ideas?

    CD-BD-DVD Music | Vinyl Records
    Its been a slow day today so I went hunting on the internet to see what price people are asking for a Yamaha KX-800U. I picked up my unit last fall for $50 Cdn and in great clean shape.

  5. Putting the Cool Back Into the Cassette, Here Comes "Awesome Mix Vol. 1"

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    It’s time for a trip down memory lane with our old friend the cassette tape. Just a smidge over 50 years ago, the cassette was introduced at the 1963 Berlin Radio Show. It was met with interest and intrigue, but settled-in as second fiddle to the rather ungainly 8-track tape and the audiophile...
  6. Cassette Player Accessory for Old Stereo

    Two Channel Audio
    First post to this forum, which I found via a Google search. Wondering if anyone can offer some advice. This concerns old cassette tapes. My husband has a dozens (think "mix tapes," rather than commercially produced cassettes,) and we're trying to decide if it's better to bite the bullet and...
  7. Vintage Pioneer Cassette Tape Deck

    AV Home Theater
    I purchased a Pioneer Vintage CT-F6060 Cassette Tape deck at a garage sale today. Not sure if it works, but it powers up and the meters are bright. Only paid $10.00, but thought it looked interesting. Anyone know anything about this deck, or tell me where I might find some information on it...
  8. Do you still use Cassette tapes?

    AV Home Theater
    With all the talk lately about the different analog audio devices that used to be popular, I was just looking at my A/V rack in our living room and realized that I have not used my tape deck at all since we moved into this house 2 years ago. A cousin of mine still has his Nakamichi Dragon tape...
