If you thought auto-reverse decks and walkmas were always using 4-tracks heads or rotating heads, then you should see this beautiful video by Matt, aka Techmoan. Beautiful. My Nakamichi RX-505 works with the same principle of this AKAI, but in a much more clever way.

In this video my friend Mat, aka Techmoan, shows many things about cassettes. I absolutely love this video, and I think it’s one of the best out there. Not only it explains many things very cleverly, it is also a pleasure to watch to. It’s probably my favorite one of his videos. Remember that if […]

Some time ago I got a nice TASCAM 414 MkII added to my collection. It’s a very cool cassette-based recording deck with 4 independent channels. It was used by small bands in the early 90s to record their songs without having to spend high money on a studio. Though it hasn’t 8 or 16 tracks as professional […]

Some months ago I got, thanks to a bit of luck, the most sophisticated deck AIWA ever released, the XK-S9000. I still remember to watch and drool while seeing this piece of beauty in the brochure that I still have saved since 1992. I always wondered how much better can it sound compared to my […]

Once in a time there was a brand called Philips that invented a music format that revolutionized the entire world. It was the compact cassette, and that happened back in 1962. Quoted from the Wikipedia: “In 1962, Philips invented the Compact Cassette medium for audio storage, introducing it in Europe on 30 August 1963 at the Berlin Radio Show, and […]

I’m always been a fan of SONY products since 1986. I loved the quality of their materials, the design and the good mechanics. Since their ugly acquisition of AIWA and the huge fails with the advent of the MP3 I’m not a fan of SONY anymore. But no one can say bad things about their […]

I have seen this rare deck only in an old brochure. I must confess once I’ve seen it in action I’m in love with it. My friend Mat at Techmoan has finally found one after years of searching and he’s so lucky to have it in excellent and working condition. Believe it or not, but […]

In this video I explain nothing in particular, but simply show all my stack at “full power” while I’m dubbing a mixtape. The original tape was recorded in the Technics B965 (an UX-Pro) with dbx, using vinyl as source, as I already explained if earlier posts. Now you can hear it playing and being recorded in […]

Tonight I’m recording my first mixtape for swapping, which will be 100% analog, from vinyl discs. After carefully preparing the song list and deeply cleaning the discs it’s time for recording. So this is the real joy: listening to good music with the highest quality from vinyl at night… with a cup of good wine (Rene […]
