Re: arsclist A to D Transfer Advice Please
Doug is absolutely right- correctly adjusted azimuth is the first step in
good tape transfer.
Finding a cassette recorder where you can change azimiuth while the tape is
playing is a bear. Nakamichi makes one and made a few others. Any others
that fill this bill?
