Question about Teac Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi, I have just bought a R-H300 tape deck connected to a CR H250 amp. The play quality is good however I have connected a new mic through the Aux phono ports using a jack/phono converter and the record quality has very low volume and poor quality. What can I do please? Regards, David H.

    Many thanks for your advice and sorry for the delay in replying. I will look up the mic and see if I can find anything. It is new but not very expensive, although it is supposed to have a built-in pre-amp.

If your mic isn't made for connection to an AUX or Line Level input you won't get its specified performance.

Perhaps if you defined the mic and looked up a user's guide somewhere (retrevo.com comes to mind) you might find what you need to use it. Mic's usually require microphone preamplifiers.

I took my Pioneer SX-450 Receiver and Pioneer CT-1040W Tape Deck apart to move it. Put it back together. Now can't get a tape to play.


After putting a known good tape in the deck, push play, if the tape doesn't move, try rewind and FF. If nothing happens, the deck has a problem. I assume this is a cassette deck. If so, I always try the thrift stores for a new(used) one. There are good bargains there.

Aiwa turntable not playing through the speakers


Has the amp got a dedicated phono socket for the turntable? If you are using a tape or aux socket it might not have the pre-amp needed to hear the deck. If your amp doesn't have a socket for the deck, you will need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp.

Also check the connections to the cartridge, they might have come loose.

Hi my new yamaha v373 amp needs a preamp to run a turntable so was going to use my previous onkyo txsv424 just wondering the best way to connect these two?


The turntable output cables go into the input of the magnetic cartridge preamp. The output ones go into an a tape in or aux on the Onkyo. I'm assuming that it doesn't have a input that says deck on it. Apart from getting some good quality interconnects between the devices it's a very simple thing to do.

TEAC R-H300 Forward Play Fault


The unit need some work by a technician. The bad thing about the drawer type decks is that it makes it hard or impossible to clean the tape path. I have not seen one of these but I could probably fix it.
Some of your description sound like a loose capstan belt and then other times the Pinch roller is not engaging- they may be related if the mechanism is tied to the capstan motor system.

I need manuals for hooking up my fisher stereo system model ca 871 amp fm 871 tuner cr-w890 tape deck eq 867 eq can not find manuals


I can't even find a reliable picture of the amp but it's not rocket science.

The Tuner output goes to, say, FM or Aux on the am, anything BUT Phono, which is ONLY for a turntable.

The EQ output goes to the first available Tape In; Input Comes from the same Tape Out. Select that tape function to engage it in line with any source and the downstream electronics (second tape, tone, volume, speakers).

The tape deck output goes to Tape In; Input comes from Tape Out. If there is not a second tape loop on the amp, nest the Tape Deck into the EQ's Tape loop. They always have at least one to replace the one they use. Select THAT tape function to engage it in line with any source and the downstream electronics.

Hi Taff,
I had this problem too. In the end I opened up the box ( a real nightmare) found a "computer ribbon" style wire between the tape bits and the amp bits and disconnected it. I can't use the tape anymore, but it doesn't make any noise either. Like you (in your solution) I hate the way it switches to the radio when a record finishes. I have a CD player connected to the aux play jacks - when the aux button is pushed in, the radio is disconnected and when the CD finishes, you get silence not radio.

Hi, I have a TEAC R-H300 Casette Deck. Could you possibly advise me how I can assess the Heads, Capstan and Pinch Roller in order to clean them directly? Unfortunately I tape that was playing got jammed...


Hi Glenn,
The correct way to service a unit like this is to get a service manual and then see how the transport comes out of the unit- the cleaning of the tape path is always a pain when dealing with this kind of deck. That is why I stick with the well known C-3RX and like models. They will last a very long time but are not the size of this unit.

TEAC A-H300 wifi speakers


Nothing beats actually trying it. At least you would have some form of volume control but you might not be able to match it to the wired speakers.

Or use any Line Level output, like Tape. Just don't select the corresponding Tape Monitor as it assumes a sound source coming IN from a Tape Deck. You won't have any volume control this way.

most all twin well machines will play off one deck and record to the other.

using an outboard mic preamp will allow for less noise using the sm57. balanced mic cable with 3 pin xlr/cannon connections also reduce noise.
