NAKAMICHI DRAGON TAPE DECK
This machine makes tapes that sound fantastic. My VPI Aries turntable plays the records and the Dragon makes the tapes. WOW!! They sound better than CD's! The preceding is a quote however I recorded off my VPI Scoutmaster last night on the unit for sale and recorded off of it to a Tascam cd recorder and it is difficult to tell which is tape and which is cd in playback.
A three-head deck with discrete heads for recording, playback and erase, it uses Nakamichi’s NAAC auto azimuth correction to optimize playback azimuth on any tape type played. This resulted in a Nakamichi deck that could play back tapes recorded on other manufacturers’ machines as well as doing a great job with pre-recorded tapes. Bias can be adjusted manually very simply.
Nakamichi emerged as the uncontested king of the hill when it built the world’s first three-head machine in 1973. That deck, the 1000, had separate playback, record, and erase heads, and some owners thought it sounded as good as the better open-reel tape machines. While Nakamichi may have looked like an overnight sensation in the U.S., the company was founded in 1948 in Tokyo, Japan. In 1982, it raised the ante yet again with the Dragon, the ultimate consumer-cassette machine.
