Tanashin - the last cassette mechs & Aldi's 2019 Boombox

  • Am Vor Monat

    Dauer: 24:59

    The Tanashin cassette deck mechanism is used in both the most expensive new cassette decks and junk like this Aldi boombox. It is a low end mechanism, a hangover from budget boomboxes of the past, but for better or worse its also the last mech standing and with a bit of care can be implemented far better than this.

That this piece of junk is the last cassette mechanism in current production makes me highly skeptical of any claims that we live in an age of cassette “revival.” At least turntable technology is still being improved upon and modernized.

_Low-end,_ eh? I have a _Theory_ as to the cassette that should be used to demonstrate the mechanism... ...an old Glen Campbell album purchased for roughly a quid at a petrol station in 1985. What, you thought I’d think Tip and Phife (PBUH) deserve that indignity?

That mechanism also found on my cheap crap boombox which I bought last month. Playback quality is absolutely terrible, playback speed often changes and recording also terrible as well. Too much recording noise and when I'm attempted to play the cheap boombox-recorded tape into my cassette deck, it turns out much more horrible! SInce vintage-class media player categorized as uncommon item, it is best to avoid from spending a little bucks for "chicken brand"-level cassette players which eventually makes you're the victim of daylight robbery!

A no-name mono device for 30 pounds? This is actually more expensive than back in the 80's... back in 1988 in London, they sold Philips mono boomboxes for 25 pounds, and the stereo ones were around 50 pounds though there were far more expensive ones as well (for instance, the D-8334 at 130 pounds).

What a heap of shite. I'd be really disappointed to get one of those. Don't suppose any of the old boomboxes were made without using belts, so that you could pick up a real, properly-made one, and there's still a fair chance it works?

A good example of how cheap Chinese components have reversed the normal march of refinement. This started in about 1985 when high-end machines had motorised logic controls and metal-capable heads. Then the cost-cutting started and even old respectable brands joined the race to the bottom of the pile! Great review, Techmoan (as always)!

YurginShy I came here to say the same thing. Clearly heavily modelled on it, yet not 1/8th as good. I’m presuming that’s also where the APSS logo came from too - although I don’t think the QT27 had it either.

The recording quality of that thing (Aldi boombox) is a disaster indeed because its mono. After playing a few tapes in it, the tape speed has became unstable. Its slows down or either speeds up during playing back a tape. The plastic gear on the inside that handles the second belt has totally fell off and it wasnt able to play tapes anymore, I had to open it so I can have it repaired and RIP the warranty. Not recommended as a daily tape player/recorder.

The Aldi boom box uses the same plastic shell as the sharp Qt27. The difference is that the Sharp boombox is in stereo and does not use the same cassette mechanism.

My heart is telling me most of the problems are likely caused by MIS MATCHED BATTERIES.
