Talking The Cassette Deck for Profi,club Use

Hi guys!I have many CD-Players like MarantZ CD-65,63,67,95- yes i love MarantZ.In my country all DJ`s-I speak for electro-works with CD-Players or Vinyls.I don`t know what the deck is forgotten?
This thread is for:
1. The cassette deck have specific sounding-what is this sounding for you?
2.The cassette deck can be very easily tweaked and moded?
3.What is the specific cassette deck sounding when the motor is with very fast or very low rpm?
4.This specific sounding may be can used for professional play and mixing?
5.May be DENON profi models are the best profi cassette decks or not?
6.What the gramophone surpass in the club using the tape deck?

I work great with profi cd-players ,but I can wait for any old profi decks and can try use the tape.This is good idea for electronical music or not and why?
I presume on the personal opinion for this thread!
Thanks!

Zdravete,

I always was partial to Nakamichi cassette decks.
Tandberg was another brand that I liked.
Not sure how rugged they were, though.
I have seen many a Tascam in equipment racks at concert soundboards, so I would guess that these are pretty good decks for pro use.

Hi ZuMbAiU,
I too am partial to Nakamichi decks. They took the science and art of analog cassette reproduction to just about it's maximum potential.

I own about 8 of them, and still use them. If you want to find out about these fine old machines, check out the Naks.com website:
http://www.naks.com/
that includes the Naktalk Forum.

It's interesting that analogue sources are still quite popular....especially vinyl. As it turns out, the compact disc format does not last forever as was originally believed, and is probably not the best choice for archiving your old material. The recordable media in particular are quite susceptible to degredation over time. And yet my cassette tapes from 30 years ago are still in great shape and play beautifully.

The new trend toward digital streaming from hard drive sources (Squeezebox for example) bypasses the traditional source components altogether and potentially offer bit perfect, error free reproduction, but you still have to get the material onto your hard drive from somewhere! Nothing is perfect.

But the warm and full sound from vinyl and cassette still sounds pretty good to me.
Robert

Studer decks are, of course, excellent for pro use, but I've always liked Aiwa units - not the most robust, but exceptionally good sound for the money. I have a 6900, and love it - my only complaint is tight access for servicing.
