We shift gears this week to feature a badass cassette player with our Vintage Audio Spotlight.
Several staff members have had their eyes on this Nakamichi RX-202 ever since it came in. This audiophile cassette deck from 1982 features UDAR, Nakamichi’s unique uni-directional auto-reverse mechanism, eliminating the azimuth error loss of conventional auto-reverse decks.
The music-sensing circuit monitors playback and fast forwards through blank ‘tail’ to provide uninterrupted playback. A dual master fader creates smooth 2- or 4-second fades at a touch.
This rare beauty has a $180.00 price tag. Snag it before one of us does.
