3 Head / Professional Cassette Tape Decks STEREO


©2010Ultraelectronicative.com
Cassette Decks

were first introduced in about 1966 when the compact cassette was a novelty. It did away with the time consuming tape threading of open reel tape and provided a recording medium that was as it's name said: compact resulting in much smaller and lighter equipment.
However: Due to the much smaller tape medium, which was half of the width, thinner and not as long, sound quality was compromised if compared to open reel tape. Thus efforts pushed technical advancements, such as higher grade recording medium (Chrome Dioxyde and Metal tapes), higher resolution recording and play tape heads, and advanced noise reduction systems (such as Dolby C and dbx). In the 80's technological advancement perfected the cassette deck and sound quality approched that of previous open reel tape decks. So: cassette decks on from the mid 80's on are among those with the lowest noise figures and highest frequency responses.

For those who like analog recording out in the field onto a compact recording medium, a professional portable tape deck form the 80's might just yield the best results. I used a Marantz PMD 430 for binaural nature sound recordings and eneded up with amazing recordings that tranferred well into the digital domain.
©2010Ultraelectronicative.com
As with all vintage audio equipment, cassette decks are subject to wear and aging. If one is found in still working condition that won't do much good, as the effects of time have rendered the deck in less than optimum condition, even if it apppears in prefect condition with little use . And more likely than not, it won't perform good for very long, unless properly serviced and restorred. These traces of time cause in varying dgress: Rubber parts wear and age, lurication hardens or dires out, heads wear, solder points become brittle or intermittened, and contacts, controlls, connectors become dirty and oxydized and other parts shift out of tolerance or electrolytic capacitos leak current resulting in: wow and flutter, dirty and noisy signals, poor audio quality.

My goal with any equipment that I am offering refurbished is to address ALL of above issues where ever possible to provide equipment that performs as close as possible to original spoecifications and reliable - hopefully for decades to come. Quality work takes tremendous resources of work time and parts, which often are hard to find. Please take these facts into consideration when evaluating the prices shown here.

2004 Ultraelectronicactive.com


These decks will be REFURBISHED TO ORDER:

2-8 Weeks Lead Time - The goal with my work is quality.

Available restorations are:

• "to fully working" - repairs all defects so that all will work
• "to reliably working"- repairs all non working items and adresses to replace some aged or maintenance parts to adress relaiblity issues
• "to work "like new"" - replaces all belts, rubber parts and electrolytic capcitors. sometimes motors / heads - requires hours and hours of work time plus hard to find parts - expensive.

If restoring to work "like new" my goal will be to bring the equipment back as close as possible to original specifications and to provide reliably working condition for decades to come. This takes hours and hours of work time - actually: full days of painstaking detail orineted work. Thus prices based on the work time and parts needed (some are quite hard to find! - which again takes time!) to achieve this goal. Shop time to refurbish equipment to "working like new" is in SHORT SUPPLY, so I may not be able to serve you very quickly,




especially during late fall, winter and the first two months of the of the new year. Rushing it and vintage audio equipment, or pushing for "discount prices" DO NOT GO TOGETHER! It takes as much time as it takes. If needing to rush: Please buy "AS-IS" or ' refubished to fully working". .All units shown in pichture shown currently in original as found likely non working and unrefurbished condition

Please note that Cassette decks are time intensive items to restore, as mechanics, electronics and alignments have to be perefect and to work perfectly together. Due to large amounts of required work time, to "like new" restored items are only availalable with a restoration order from March through August. All other times please check in with me for a turn around time estimate, which in these times may be 4-16 weeks.

If wishing to purchase any of these items in original "AS FOUND" condition: Please make me an offer high enough at which I absolutely cannot refuse to sell. If wanting to own for lowest possible price, possibly buy someplace else - Here all is about quality. Not in a hurry to sell. It took years to find these nice decks. I prefer to sell to someone who will buy one of these to appreciate and actually USE (fully refurbished) for soulful music for decades to come!

Vintage USA Early Hi-FI Stereo Cassette DeckCassette deck to be refurbished - restoration services available - Decks: SONY TC-FX210, SONY TC-WR531, Fisher CR-150, Pioneer CT-F1250




This Vintage Cassete deck is unusual, as it was sold in about 1974 as a kit - for the skilled Hi-Fi Enthusiast to put together himseff from parts, and perform all alignments on it (!). At the price of 1 months rent at which it sold, it must be a quality deck, which it is. It is contructed with a very rugged meachanism that reminds of athat in a reel to reel deck (A heavy duty AC synchronous motor - huge fly wheel) The transport was furbished by Wollnesak (The deck looks like a wollensak or Advent deck) and the Kit for the entire deck was sold by Heathkit under the model number: AD-1530. It is constructed with highest quality electronic components avaialbe at the time as well. This unit's dolby processor seems to be very similar to the Advent 100-A. The special features of this deck are: The Dolby circuit offers alignment points. There is a mono switch that allows the deck to operate in mono and MIC inputs that can manually be switched to override the line input. And the deck provides it's own internal alignment gneerator that can be switched in and assiged to various test points vi aa hard wired alligator clip. I have yet to find out what moved people so much to spend a months rent on this deck - Compact Cassette became popular in about 1969. I put the needed restoration work in, to have this basically fully working and working well, but have not fully tested yet. I found an original manual for it (which I iwll include with the unit), but did not find the tiem yet, to check and tweak its alignments. I read that this deck is supposed to be equal in sound to a quality of a reel to reel deck. When this deck is ready (refurbished, aligned and tested) I probably will offer it in the $150-$245 range. Physical conditon: Excellent. - A great piece of American Vintage Hi-Fi. Inquire
