"What's the actual difference between a 122 and C-deck ? It looks like the only diff is, the rack mount and lack of feet on the 122, and the color- am I right here ?"
Actually, not even that. The original TASCAM 122 is virtually identical to the TEAC C-series decks. The main difference is that user-tweakable bias & eq is standard on the 122, whereas on the TEAC decks, it's a plug-in card. That's about it.
The original TASCAM 122 is pictured here. The part encircled in red is a front-panel, user adjustable section for bias and eq with a preset that allows you to tweak the bias and eq to match the tape you're using. When you want to use that particular bias & eq setting, you press the "preset" button on the right to recall that setting.
On the TEAC C-series machines, there's an optional plug-in card slot on the front of the deck. If you can find the card (a big if, they're scarce.) it'll give you the same feature as the 122.
have you ever set that yourself, if so, what's the procedure ?
I just bought a C-3x Teac deck with that option in it
I'd imagine you have to tape onto the cassette in question with a built-in test tone, then adjust the little screws there ?
