Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

I forgot to mention

As good as the 600s are they have 3 mechanical problems (due to age) that need to be addressed first and foremost. 1) the FF/REW arm sticks. It has to be removed, cleaned and re-lubricated. 2) these machines have several edge type connectors. Each connector, both male and female, have to be scrubbed and cleaned.3) The R/P switch will sometimes corrodes but always get dirty, it must be throughly cleaned. If you have the patience and dexterity the switch should be taken completely apart, lots of little contact pieces. I know this sounds like a lot but take my word for it, it's worth it. Good luck.
