The W-1200 is a double cassette deck featuring two, one-way cassette decks, mic mixing and a USB digital output
It allows you to play back “legacy cassette tapes” originally recorded with Dolby B NR.
Moreover, the pitch control allows you to change playback speed to whatever’s considered appropriate. A timer REC/PLAY function is provided to allow use with a third-party audio timer.
Furthermore, the W-1200 can deliver “digital audio at CD-quality (up to 48kHz/16-bit PCM)” to a computer via a USB cable, allowing digital archiving of your cassette tape library.
Other features include a remote, one-touch dubbing and parallel recording for recording to two tapes at the same time.
Any colour you like as long as it’s black, the Teac spans 435 x 145 x 286mm and weighs in at 4.6kg. Price is £400.

Why didnt you mention the absolute garbage specs on this deck? Specs from decks by the same manufacturer 20 years ago are far superior.

This is just a news piece, Greg. It’s not a review. For the latter, I would lend a more critical eye over the product.

Buy a deck by the same manufacturer 20 years ago, then.

The high quality components from the old days are no longer manufactured. TEAC did a good job with what is available to them.

there are oslo lot of people wo love this deck and decks from 20 year ago you can not have for mew so Greg is not corect in his anser. Paul has not told that this deck is beter than the clasics but the are not for sel.
So Greg if you can deliver a deck from 20/30 year old al new than only you have a right to speak like this

Jsem velice zvědav na tento přístroj, co nejdříve jej obdržím.

Dejte mi vědět, jak jste na tom, až to dostanete. Buďte rádi, že si na to vyslechnete svůj názor.
