RE: Nakamichi MR2 cassette deck

The MR-2 is a two head deck so not as good as the BX-300 deck which is a three head machine. The BX-300 is also a direct drive machine, the MR-2 is belt driven. The BX-300 is a dual capstan machine. If you are talking about the Nakamichi 600 (the one that is wedge shaped) it is not as good as either the MR-2 or BX-300 it was made in the early mid 70's whereas both the MR-2 and BX-300 are late 80's and early 90's machines.

IMO the BX-300 is a far better machine than either the MR-2 or the Nak 600.

As far as Sounds Classic is as a reseller, I don't know anyone that has purchased from them, but when I have looked at there web-site their prices seem a tad high.

You might want to try the Naktalk mail list, I am sure you can get a lot of info there.
