Default Tape recorder received

Hi all,

I just received 2 used tape recorders to add to my current system.

I'm new to this, even if I have and use currently a cassette player.

The problem is: I do not know which one to keep and which to dump.

The recorders are:

AKAI X201D (with removable cover)

SONY TC 377 (with removable cover)

I also received lot of NOS tapes still in box...

I could find online user's and service manuals for both.

I cannot keep both main because I do NOT have enough space, and more, because of wife complaints.......

Can someone tell me which one is better and why??

Thanks in advance for any suggestions....

You know, I keep it both of them.
The wife should go ...
Then you find another one, if you want.
At least you will have more space.

But now I was just evil.
From me It is not so nice when we are waiting for Jesus.


As far as I can see the two devices are similar.
Perhaps the Sony.

Wacky

Both are the basic "bottom of the line" units. I would sell both and seek something better with solenoid operated controls and motion sense. Regards

Yes, presumably this is the best idea.
This did not occur to me.
I am not that salesman kind.
You could be shopping possibly a GX630D.
But mine not selling.
