    Pioneer CT-S800 (CT-91/CT-939)

    i haven't even seen it since that first time as a boy, when my folks rented it for me as a new release around 1993/1994. even so, i sure did listen to that soundrack album plenty back then, especially as i only had but a tiny handful of tapes at the time. perhaps one of these days, if i stumble...

    LITTLE RIVER BAND; FIRST UNDER THE WIRE (1979)/GREATEST HITS (1982)/NO REINS (1986)/MONSOON (1988)/GET LUCKY (1990) the soundtrack of my youth. committed to choice TDK SA-90s, using the CT-S800 as recorder, and the PIONEER ELITE PD-91 CDP as source... a pair of childhood favorites, owned on...

    NAD 6040A Cassette Deck

    what little of NAD i've heard of, -mostly from 80's issues of STEREO REVIEW i have, as well as a KENWOOD OEM NAD 1986 CD player i saw at a thrift once long ago- indicates that they never really seemed to be clear about what their brand acronym stood for beyond the early-80's there. in all, all...

    NAD 6040A Cassette Deck

    Steven (ORANGE) just gifted me this deck. it seems to have belt issues, since it randomly throws itself into AUTO STOP. it really does WANT to work though, and, when it does, it has a nice, warm sound character that reminds me of the old mixtapes my dad made throughout the early/mid-80's on his...

    POLK AUDIO R10 Two-Way Mini-Monitor

    i heard that stuffing the utterly empty stock cabinets with polyfill or the like significantly tightens up the bass response...

    POLK AUDIO R10 Two-Way Mini-Monitor

    well, i stumbled upon these mini-monitors at my local GW just yesterday for $20.00. i nearly passed them by, but noticing the make, and knowing something of the reputation they have, i decided to at least have a close look. i was immediately impressed by the weight, for the size, and the...

    Christmas always starts in Summer...

    thanks a ton Steve, and everyone else, too!!! and here is the exact three tape types that comprised my first ever TYPE-IIs, handed down from my folks back around 1999/2000. the MAXELL XL-II 1988 and TDK SA 1984 are courtesy of Steven (Thanks, man!!!) and the MAXELL XL-IIS 1989 is from a...

    Nakamichi "CD Player 1" (1991)

    indeed, i've heard the belts are a mother to change in this design. fortunately, this example seems fine on that account. the only issue, in fact, is the auto-changer's tendency to jam, which appears to be the fault of the anti-vibration rubber coating on the magazine's disc trays peeling away...

    Craig..................

    Jeez... i had no idea. me and Craig go all the way back to to our AK days, back around 2006/2007 or so. a silly question he was kind enough to come along out of nowhere and attempt to answer for me, in regards to the occasional "static snap" i was hearing somewhere within the confines of my...

    Nakamichi "CD Player 1" (1991)

    yeah, without that coating, the tray is quite plasticky. still and all, it is a sort of plasticky a great many steps above the absolute rinky-dink flimsiness of the DVD player mechanisms pretty much shared by most modern CDPs made during the last 10/20 years. anyway; the Dual-Mono Analog...

    Nakamichi "CD Player 1" (1991)

    while it certainly isn't the cosmetic equal of the best PIONEER models such as the PD-91 and 93, it is definitely top quality, indeed so heavily built that it feels like hoisting a solid chunk of steel. that said, there's a thin anti-vibration rubber coating on the disc tray that does not...

    Nakamichi "CD Player 1" (1991)

    been getting lucky at the thrifts and such lately. this time being Nakamichi's 1991/1992 $2000.00 MSRP TOTL internal-magazine-type CD changer, the "CD Player 1" great name, guys. anyways, this beast is, well, at something like 30lbs. or so, a Beast. much of the weight is due to the...

    MARANTZ PMD221 Portable Cassete Recorder (19/20XX?)

    standard CIA issue then, may i presume? why? is this deck prone to draining it's cells in short order and causing premature leakage? also, before anyone gets carried away on notions that this was some intelligence field officer's personal dictation recorder; this deck was found, -in a plain...

    MARANTZ PMD221 Portable Cassete Recorder (19/20XX?)

    "AGAPE HOUSE" in HERMISTON, OR. they hold a "name your price" rummage sale about ten times per year or so; http://agapehousehermiston.org/ they've been at it for the last decade at least, and once or twice a year on average i get lucky. one of the first i ever attended, about ten years back...

    MARANTZ PMD221 Portable Cassete Recorder (19/20XX?)

    found this fairly well-made piece at that local rummage sale i attend, held every month or three, paid about a dollar or so. it's well made, ant it seems to work perfectly. only issue is that it is MONO only, but is definitely Hi-Fi MONO, even out of the internal speaker. no DRAGON-killer...
