Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

These decks made recording a very enjoyable experience.

Nakamichi DR1 (still have it, still looks less than a minute out of the box, never use it).
Nakamichi CR5 (bought used in 1998 for $350, sold it ten years later for $380)
Nakamichi BX-300
JVC TDV-541 (+10db on a TDK AR without breaking sweat or saturating. Virtually peerless speed stability)
Yamaha KX-500 (great features, decent overall sound, poor w&f)
Yamaha KX-340 (great value, well executed HX Pro)
JVC KDD4 (great features, meh sound)
