Re: arsclist Duplicating casette tapes
Title: Re: arsclist Duplicating casette
I think you'll get better results doing
real-time duplication (or 2x at the most) in a Sony or perhaps Kenwood
(I'm not sure of their current models, I have a good older model) or
Teac dual-well deck.
We use both a Marantz PMD510 and a Sony TC-WR11ES dual deck for
dubbing cassettes. I like the Sony because it has a pause button--we
do a lot of copying from multiple sources.
However, you might also consider copying
them to CD-R rather than other cassettes.
Or you might consider doing what we do: original recordings on
DAT (you can record at 48 KHz on DAT, you only get 44.1 on CD). The
material could be backed up to DAT, or captured on a computer.

I use a Nakamichi Dragon for cassette
playback and a pair of Sony CDRW33 machines for recording. That will
extract as much quality as you can hope for.

We are beginning an oral
history project and plan to purchase equipment to make reference
copies of the original cassette tapes. Is it best to purchase a dual
cassette deck such as a Sony or RCA, etc. or are there decks that are
best for duplicating tapes that are not manufactured to be part of a
stereo system? I would appreciate any advice on this
