  1. Eckart,
    I have been a huge fan of cassette since my very first Advent 201. (Which I still own). Having gone through what seems like countless cassette decks, years ago I started to compare and listen to how different each one sounds. The above mentioned Advent is in one system and a Nakamichi 500 Dual Tracer is in another. Gone are the Nak 1000, 600, Tanberg 310, 330, Pioneer CTF 9191, 1000, 1250, several machines from TEAC, AIWA, Kenwood, Sansui, etc, etc, etc.
    I Remember when the 3014 was introduced. I believe I had a ReVox B215 around the same time, which had a thermal problem as the end of tape indicator light was burning my tapes in two. =) Then the LCD display went dark and slowly disappeared.=)

    I have cassettes that I made 40 years ago and they still sound good. I think it’s wonderful that you have one in your main system. It’s such a convenience to create your own tapes for casual listening, or to take along when traveling.

    This must be a truly wonderful machine, as I remember you mentioning that you don’t Dolby encode your tapes. That is something I have never been able to do successfully with any of the machines I have owned. And it looks good!



  2. Norman,
    The sound I do record on my tapes is such crystal clear! I am using it on my mobile Cassette units. I also have a RX505 E in my second system. You have quite a history with these machines. It is part of our musical life.
