In Reply to: RE: How about a listing of the tape decks we've owned? posted by Dave Pogue on June 07, 2016 at 05:44:20
if we include cassette machines?
circa 1966, a Philips portable cassette deck. As a teenager I used it for mischievous things.
Circa 1970. A Sony TC127 Cassette deck for my humble stereo. (it eventually died)
After that....a Dual C-939 Cassette deck with auto-reverse. (it suffered a fate no better)
The Otari MX-5050 BII 2 (I'll get it working one of these days)
Revox A77 (hasn't caught fire yet!)(but it isn't working anyway)
It's mostly Lps over here, but I have a modest collection of commercial tapes, almost all exclusively 7-1/2ips 4-tracks. And one odd-ball 2-track.

Do it. Ya ain't gettin' any younger.

Right you are. I think what I need to get the ball rolling is to put together a kit tape head preamp. When I have the promise of having as good a signal chain as my vinyl rig, then I'll get to it.
Adding to that list...about 20 items in front of it.
If you get the tape head preamp, you'll have to mod the Otari to allow for direct tape head output.
It's well worth doing :-)
