RE: Just a playback deck?

You can't compare the price of the deck to the price of the media, they are two completely different things. Also, there is a very small market for $400 tapes. I think there is an even smaller market for a $4,500 play-only tape deck, especially since an interested person can buy and refurbish a VERY nice play/record deck for $2,500.

Heck, my excellent Revox A77 Mk IV 2-track 7.5/15 ips deck goes for about $600 on ebay. (I'm not interested in selling it, btw.) WHY would I spend $4,500 for a play-only deck?

BTW, $400 tapes are WAY over-priced.
