Actually, sending one or two on their way to new caretakers (we can't own this stuff, I have decided -- it tends to own us). :)

Meanwhile, it's been fun hookin' a few up, sorting through the astonishingly deep, disorganized, and low-quality collection of "software" (i.e., tapes) lurking in various nooks and crannies here, and punchin' a few buttons.

This forum has tended to be a bit torpid of late, so I figured I'd offer a few piccies.

One of the belts is broken and I'm long overdue in installing a new one. From what I've read that is a somewhat complicated procedure to insure all the timing is correct.

I do have a fair collection of tapes which sounded pretty decent the last time I listened to any of them.

In all related to tape, become a member of "Tapeheads".

It's free, the people are very friendly, and everyone knows their stuff. Lots of professional techs there, and plenty of talented amateurs.
Proudly serving content-free posts since 1984.

Some good local tape deck support in the Boston metro area.

Thanks, though.

all the best,
