About a month ago, I was in the city looking at some hi fi shops, and looking into getting the Pioneer CT WR twin deck recorder. I was looking on the internet today, to see if I can find some reviews, and ultimately some cheaper prices. I cam across this Amazon review, and really, I was rolling on the floor, when reading the third review on the bottom. Can someone tell me if such stupid people really do exist.

About a month ago, I was in the city looking at some hi fi shops, and looking into getting the Pioneer CT WR twin deck recorder. I was looking on the internet today, to see if I can find some reviews, and ultimately some cheaper prices.
I cam across this Amazon review, and really, I was rolling on the floor, when reading the third review on the bottom. Can someone tell me if such stupid people really do exist. It was a cracker. I expressed my concerns about auto-reverse tape decks to the shop-owner, as he said that this model has excellent azimuth alighment performance.
I didn't want to just take his word for it, as ultimately, his aim was just to sell me one. Judging by the other two reviews on Amazon, they seem to be quite happy with it. I'm wanting to get this model, as the cassette chasis holders come off for easier tape head cleaning. I'm quite sure that this is the only tape deck on the market today, that will allow me to do that. Just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this deck?
A complete digital restoration of Australia's TV advertised compilations from the 70s 80s and 90s. Recompiled from the world's best dynamically unbricked uncompressed lossless digital audio sources. Sorta looks like Pioneer's last gasp in regards to dual wells. I have never seen one in person or read anything about it,I'm pretty sure its in a league of "the last of the last,get it while you can Web Police.
Damn it doesn't come with speakers? In practice there is. A nickel from yesterday isn't worth a half dollar today.
Soul Music. I bought a new one of these a while back in desperation really because I wanted a deck that did not need any attention. Anyway last night out of curiosity I decided to try some recording on it. And was quite suprised with the results. It records and plays very clean and Dolby C seems to work very well on this deck.
I was half hoping it would sound a bit naff so I could sell it on and make some space. I'm not sure what to do now I may just keep it? Pacific Stereo. There's nothing special about this deck.

It is mentioned in their catalogue. The seller didn't pack mine properly and it arrived with some dents, but in good working order. I banged the dents out and set it up. Mine came with a user manual. I sat mine on the desk at work so I can listen to cassettes while I work, while I haven't connected it to a decent amplifier it sounds pretty good through the Logitech computer speakers.
The auto reverse works a treat so I can listen to whole albums all the way through without a tape flip. I wouldn't say it's the best deck I've ever heard, but it's a very long way from terrible.
I've only recorded once, an internet stream Format 3 and I was pleasantly surprised at the result, it produced a faithful representation of the music, which sounded pretty good when I played it on my home system.
All in all it's probably the best "new" deck you can get, but not worth what they are asking, shop around, patience is the key, especially if you intend to drop over bucks.

But if you can test them side by side - do it , better specs do not mean a better sound. Would you like to see your company or site here? Thread Tools. All times are GMT The time now is PM.

Pioneer CT-W208R Dual Cassette Deck
Tried and true, the Compact Cassette remains the most popular recording medium ever. For making exceptional recordings simply and quickly, the CTWR is an excellent choice. Both cassette decks have auto reverse mechanisms, allowing for long-term listening and recording capabilities. Continuous Play with Auto Reverse select from several modes of playback-choose to play back all of tape A, then all of tape B or play the front side of tape A then the front side of tape B, then play the back side of each tape. Or, just use standard continuous play-load two cassettes into the unit, and select PLAY on each deck. When tape A finishes and shuts off, tape B will begin to play, allowing for uninterrupted listening.
