prsently working on cassette transfers myself.
sometimes you open drawers, and you have completely forgotten about masters.
Marantz SD63 -> Tas DR70D 2444

Nice Moke! Keeping it simple. Curious though, why is the hood open on the Marantz? Azimuth adjust in there somewhere?

That was me being stupid.
I'd originally set the cass. deck up on this cabinet in the music room, without thinking.  The opposite end of that cabinet has the household WiFi hub on it.
Without thinking or realizing, I attempted a transfer, and, I came up with this weird pulsing sound. My mind tried to turn it into a bad capacitor in the deck. So I opened it up, and looked for overt signs of bad caps; leaking spots, split cans, etc.. I found nothing.
I tried a second transfer, and, came up with the same noise again. WTF?
Then I realized my mistake, and, moved the deck over to another outlet, and tried again; no noise.
I took the pic before I put the lid back on.

So I recently got a batch of tapes from mid 90’s up to 2002. My Nak CR5A folds every one of them. They’re all from the same source deck. Sony D5. My Nak plays anything I throw at it, any year any source, except this batch. What could be the issue? Bad storage? Bad D5? I wanted to try these tapes on the D5 that recorded them but that deck is not working and the owner does not want to repair it. Don’t know what to tell him. Would anyone be interested in trying to transfer these tapes? If it’s the Nak I’ll get it serviced, but I don’t think it is.

Found some good stuff on line for cassette repairs. I’m thinking I should have the belts replaced on the deck to.

I assume you FF and RW each tape before transfer???

I have no idea why it would do that except the cassettes have been stored poorly???

While I had the lid of my deck off, I did take an alcohol soaked piece of cloth, and I cleaned the flywheel, which was kind of dirty. I also lightly rubed the belt while it was rotating with the same alc. rag, and it came up a bit cleaner as well.

Yes, I always FF and RW and then clean head and lube rollers after every couple shows. I just hope that crinkled tapes can eventually be used for transfer. I really don’t know why 40 year old tapes play and 20 year olds won’t. 👍😜

I sent the deck to Pro Dig for a check up. Last time I had it serviced was 2005. I’m sure I’ll get to the bottom of it.
