That is a very nice Nakamichi, way better than my basic 2 head one.

Did you know there are pretty decent aftermarket calibration tapes for sale now?

Looks like the price went up 20 or 30 euros since I found them last fall. Should have bought one when I had the chance.

fedex
Thanks! This is actually a 2-head as well, that's why it's reasonably inexpensive now. The RX-505 is the higher-end 3-head version of the 202

I'm not such an audiophile I need calibration tapes though, but thanks for the arrow anyway. I just like to pretend I'm Mickey Rourke in 9.5 Weeks when I bring a date over and flip the auto-reverse incessantly until she leaves.

Weird, if that's the two head version then I used to have one (the transport controls were dead, I guess that was a common problem on certain versions of that particular model) and the actual door is completely different on yours. Must have been some kind of aftermarket customization.

Mine's the CR-1a, more or less the next generation of yours. I think the differences are mostly cosmetic.

Old_Zircon
I actually don't even listen to tapes, I just use it to make them.

Old_Zircon
Never mind, I was confusing yours with the BX-300.

Old_Zircon
Yours is much cooler.

Thanks. Apparently this is the absolute high-end of the nakamichi line, I had never even heard of it until yesterday.

There is one on Ebay right now for ,299.00

I've never heard of those, I thought the Dragon was the pinnacle of their production models. BUT I can up the ante, last fall when I was looking for calibration tapes someone was eBaying a one-of-a-kind deck that was used at trade shows to demonstrate their engineering - it was the transport mechanism completely unhoused, mounted in a glass cube with simple controls on a plinth below. It was up to about ,000 when I saw it. I can't find anything about it now.

,299.00 to listen to tapes? Seems legit.

My teddy ruxpin is comparable to this system.

Neat. AND NOW WE KNOW WHAT YOU SOUND LIKE, MUAHAHA
fedex

It is indeed a silly machine, but if it makes fedex happy, that's all that's needed.

fedex
I'm hoping Stanley was referring to the ,300 deck in the comments, as mine was only 0

Robin Kestrel
Still a viable format!

I'll bet that was pretty!

Doh that was to Oz re: the ,000 tape deck

I really don't get why this ridiculous tape reverse mechanism exists, but I enjoy that it does.
