I'm after a second hand cassette deck to add to my system and after looking on flea bay there are many makes. What should i avoid and what should i hone in on?
Thanks in advance

Yeah, sorry about that. After i posted i did think that it should have been put on the trading forums.adam4478 and sk8...in reply to the comments above,you should both be aware that this is not a trading area.
The correct place is in the forum classifieds..since you have both traded here before,you should be aware of this.
Thats nice of you to send him on a hunt for a Walkman Pro.......might as well try and find some hens teeth while he is at it......Also consider the Sony Walkman Pro. Add a decent powersupply and you have a stunning player
I have a walkman pro! I didn't realise they were that rare?! I also wouldn't recommend one as a stand alone cassette deck. It's good (very good) but unless you get really good (and I mean really good) incons the gains are lost when compared to a standard deck.Thats nice of you to send him on a hunt for a Walkman Pro.......might as well try and find some hens teeth while he is at it......
I just checked Ebay and there are a couple on from the USA heading £130 +
Its a lovely bit of kit though, mate of mine had one but would not sell it to me, it was more like a collectors piece than anything and infact, you do see them in museums !
If you're not in the Nakamichi market, the Aiwa 3-head decks such as the AD-F850 or AD-F950, or similar models, are all good, if you can find a lightly used one.
Avoid the ordinary Aiwa decks, of which you will find plenty on eBay, etc. But the upper range ones (as above) really are good - very different from their mass market budget models.
