Thanks! Too bad they are listed by model number, you have to open each one to see the date. But it is good to have!

The reason is that cassettes, particularly old ones, tend to skew and a dual capstan deck will hold azimuth better throughout the length to the tape. Some Nakamichi's also have the added feature of a pressure pad lifter. If you are going to consider a NAK, be sure and buy one that was built post 1982. Dual capstan decks are expensive, even used which, I think, is the only way you will find one. The Tascam that you mention is current but a good used dual capstan machine will out perform it, hands down.
