The Dragon is somewhat different than any other Nakamichi because it automatically optimizes playback head azimuth for each tape you play. This means you get the best possible playback resolution with every tape you play. If you're serious about cassette tape, you should try to find a Dragon and then have it restored to perfect health. It will make an improvement that you can easily hear.
Hi John ,
I also had a nice Nakamichi 700 ZXE back in the day . When making tape recordings the heads Azimuth is adjusted automatically at first prior to tape recording . It's sounds great and true it rivals the reel tapes . The 700ZXE was as big as the top of the line 1000ZXL . Problem was when you playback recordings made from other cassette tape decks or commercially available prerecorded tapes it does not sound good . But one thing I noted w/ this Cassette decks even the top of the line Nakamichi was they were not able to handle the wide dynamic range of my moving coil cartridge ( Koetsu Black ) . Either the recording level is set to low or when I set the recording a little higher it would saturate the tape . Maybe I did not try hard enough . I regretted selling it .
Stay safe ,
