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.

Long-term stability of DAT seems poorly documented. I have read anecdotal reports which lead me to question it. For the same reason, I am leery of suggesting any DVD format, though that would allow still higher sampling rates.
