Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Playback slows noticably after several minutes

I have a Teac V-770 cassette deck, and love its fidelity and functionality because of 3 heads. Lately though (and I haven't played it a whole lot in the last several years!) the playback has slowed down after several minutes such that by the end of a tape the speed is noticably slower, although no wow+flutter. Any suggestions on what I should go after first? Thanks, Brad Clark sixclarksinga@comcast.net

I WANT TO PURCHASE ONLY CASSETTE TAPE DECK HEAD ; AMORPHOUS Z 3 HEAD FOR TECHNICS CASSETTE TAPE DECK


All you can do is look on E bay for someone who is selling such an item. The fact that they are no longer produced is going to make the price high. This is the reality of cassette tape decks these days.

Ho do i use the high speed dubbing feature to quickly transfer tapes to my pc using the alesis Dual-Cassette Tape Digital Archiver?


What's your hurry? You copy a tape once but listen to it forever in real-time without fear of it wearing out or degrading. Shouldn't it be as faithful a copy as you can get?

A little advice.... if you have any desire to transfer the higher frequencies from your cassettes to your digitized copies, do it at normal speed. The hi-end response of the deck is ok at normal speed but doubling it will double the playback frequencies, making incapable of reproduction with any fidelity.


Frequency Response

(-20dB recording)

Chrome tape 40-15000Hz (±3dB)

Normal tape 40-14000Hz (±3dB)

(0dB recording)

Chrome tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)

Normal tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)

Imagine what its response at, say, 30000Hz might be. That's what doubling the playback speed would demand from the head and electronics. It ain't hi-fi anymore.

Cassette playback


Hi, I am brand new to this site. So I may not be very good. However your prob sounds like one I had a few years back. I solved mine by using two pencils, one in each hub.
Then winding manually from one to the other. This is quite time consuming, but it worked for me. Hope this helps, if not, sorry for wasting your time.

Teac cassette deck records at very low volume


Tape decks have a record amp, depending on the age of the machine it will probably be an IC. Yours might have failed. See if you can identify it or try and get a C diagram. To locate it follow the leads from the head. If your lucky it might have 'Rec Amp' on the board. Their maybe a preset marked 'rec level' for each channel. The (IC) box with legs - near them will most likely be it. Don't adjust the presets unless somebody has tampered with them before. (they will look to be sitting around the middle if they are OK).

Teac A-21 Stereo Cassette Tape Deck turns un, but won't play cassette tapes...


very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.

Lower fidelity voice recording capability


MobilePro 770 units with a serial number before MC-B004P3US-033 may have a lower fidelity voice recording capability. This may cause voice recognition software to not function properly. This issue is not experienced with new units.
