I'm hoping to buy a tape deck for my GF to transfer [and listen] to her collection of tapes. As it's a mechanical device I'm looking to buy something reliable [is this possible?], the budget is relatively small perhaps £75. My memory seems to recall that Nakamichi decks had the best reputation, but I'm wary that this is often fuelled by rumour and not "ears" on. I used to have a Technics myself which was a solid deck, I've also heard good reports about Yamaha decks. I'm looking to make a relatively short shortlist but if anyone has hands on experience of more modern decks I'm interested in hearing about it. So far and in no particular order: Nakamichi DR-3 Nakamichi Casette Deck 2 Technics RS BX510 Yamaha KX580 Appreciate your input.
