Almost any Nakamichi deck will fulfill your needs. I can't remember all of the models that have a pitch control (which may or may not strictly meet your "fast or slow") I do know the MR-1 does.

I realize cassettes are an inferior format for storing audio, but I have a number of cassettes that need to be transfered, and I want to be able to get the best playback I can. Does anyone have any recommendations on brands or models of cassette decks that are known to be of good quality? Also, I have heard some decks have a dial for adjusting playback speed, allowing one to compensate for a fast or slow recording machine. Does anyone have opinions on this, as far as whether or not such a feature is worth having? Thanks in advance.
