Teac AD800 - good and bad

Advantages: Good/very good CD and USB
Disadvantages: Tape not up to scratch, complicated to use

...Bought it to replace a dead Kenwood tape deck, expecting similar high quality(because Teac took over Kenwood). In some respects I'm happy, but in others I'm very disappointed. Can't fault the CD player or the USB facility, but the tape section of the ma ...

The SL-PG 590

Advantages: Cheap, sturdy, ease of use.
