Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

As the matter of fact...

I compared the Revox B215 against the Dragon and as far as I'm concerned they did sound very close to each other. My other Naks the RX-505 and ZX-7 that I compared to the B215 didn't sound any better. If it wasn't for the Dragon's reliability issues I would have kept it. BTW, the Revox B215 cassette deck is the only true direct drive mechanism as it doesn't employ any belts unlike the Nak or any other cassette decks direct drive system in the same era.

Anyway, another cassette deck to ponder as well is the Tandberg TCD 440A, which surprises the heck out of me as it sounded just as good as the Tandberg TCD 3014, which is 4 times more expensive. The only problem is their reliability issues.

If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing well
