Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

K1000 was a nice deck by all acounts

Black one or silver? The latter did, apparently, exist!
Nice that you found one in working order.

FWIW, I've never had the guts to try dBx on a cassette; though.
dBx has (had) a pretty bad reputation for "pumping" (or "breathing"), relative to Dolby.

FWIW^2, I never cared for the sound of Dolby C cassette tapes, and I'd pretty much lost interest in cassette by the time HX-Pro came along (i.e., I really don't have much of an opinion one way or the other).

HX Pro certainly should help with HF extension at higher signal levels... which is the big bugbear when it comes to cassette tape in general and in any compander NR scheme (Dolby, dBx, what have you) in particular.

Dolby C and HX pro frequency response
all the best,
