Finally I discovered my mobile cassette player and of course I should not write that in my opinion it is the No 1 mobile cassette player. I will also not mention that there were great contenders from Aiwa and other brands. This unit is built like a tank, comprises two capstan direct drives and comes with an intelligent power source, allowing AA batteries and rechargable flat batteries (a reminder of the 80ies?) in its battery compartment. I should not talk about the excellent playback quality, the wonderful ‘golden earphone plug-in hole’ and the fantastic haptics of this unit. Combined with appropriate earphones – in this case with a Ultrasone iQ – it is a pleasure having a walk in the sunshine as I did this afternoon listening to the Aurex Jazz Festival 80’s.
Without Dolby, without DBB – just playing as it was recorded on the Tandberg.
