I want to share with you something that I found interesting. User ‘Vince666‘ from Tapeheads has built an interesting CD for performing deck calibration. If you have a good 3-head deck and you like to do good recordings, you probably know that adjusting bias for a particular type of tape is a must. Some advanced and […]

It is very common to hear bad critizism to the MP3 format in audiophile circles, specially in analog audio circles. I have a quite big collection of mp3 music and I think a have quite good knowledge about the format and how to build good mp3 files. I’ve heard bad, very bad, good and excellent […]

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy this summer. I was curious to see a walkman in a modern Hollywood movie, and I can say I enjoyed the movie, as well as the walkman and the tape that can be seen in it. In this movie, a walkman and a mixtape plays a special role. NOTE: […]

I’ve been lucky to have one of the best boomboxes at home for some days recently. A good friend, Mankamaz, bought this treasure and sent it to restore (put new belts, etc…) and then it came home. I took it a few photos quickly. Not the same way I usually do by deep cleaning it, […]

This is the boombox I’ve had from ’87 to ’92 (more or less): the Hitachi TRK-3D75E. I’ve had to “fight” considerably with my parents until I convinced them that I really didn’t want any cheap or budget boombox. I really need a decent one, with a lot more features than the average, like and 5-band EQ […]

I’ve recently added a new gem to my collection: the AIWA AD-WX909, which is a very special deck. It’s a dual deck that combines a standard, 2-head deck on the left and a more advanced 3-head deck on the right. As far as I know, it’s an unique model as there’s no other deck like […]

Hello and welcome to another of my reviews! This should be an interesting read for most of you here I think. Not just because it is about analog but also because for the first time I can honestly say portable audio is more than just comparable to what we’re usually accustomed to hear from full-size […]
