Re: [ARSCLIST] cassette crackle

What about the old high speed duplication machines? In the 80s I worked at a duplication plant that had Ampex 300-size decks to record onto cassette tape that was then loaded into shells. I'd be surprised if nobody has ever modified one to play back cassette tape...

A last note about cassettes. The narrow tape does not give some of the problems that wider open reel tape has, but controlling the head location is also a problem. The cassette shell adds a whole- nuther set of variables. Nobody has ever made an open reel player for .150 tape, have they? Oh, that little Nagra. What was its tape width? .125 or .150? But that thing would probably cost as much as a luxury car now if you could find it. Maybe some of you who have worked more with cassettes than I have (I HATE them) can recommend machines that have more sturdy and accessable adjustments than the usual crap, and some that retract the pressure pad.
