Harman Kardon Dual Cassette Deck W Remote DC5500High Quality Harman Kardon made in Japan Dual Cassette Deck
*2 Available. 1 with remote: $345. 1 without remote $295. Both tested and working nicely
The basics are simple enough, In a standard size and characteristically stylish ~ $1000 package (when new), the H/K DC5500 supplies a record/replay tape transport and a playback only one, both with auto-reverse. The deck has the standard Dolby B, C and HX Pro, and switchable MPX filter switching. All the usual features are present: one-key normal and high speed dubbing, an electronic tape counter (shared between the transports) plus intro and track search modes that will look up to fifteen tracks in either direction. Remote control is also included, with system control data links at the back.
The Harman/Kardon DC5500 largely justifies its maker’s claims. This really is a ‘dual well’ cassette deck for those who want the convenience without too much compromise. The deck is most comfortable with Type I (ferric) and Type II (chrome bias) tapes. Metal tape recordings tend to sound raw and edgy, especially if Dolby C is used. As with so many cassette decks, Dolby B is sonically preferable, and represents the optimum compromise between sound quality and background hiss for most music and tape types.
This is an excellent dual deck for the audiophile who doesn’t want to sacrifice quality for the sake of being able to dub tapes, and the remote is a very welcome addition.

Harman Kardon Single Well Cassette Deck, Made in Japan CD191High Quality Single Well 80's Vintage Cassette Deck from Harman Kardon, made in Japan.
From Harman Kardon:
"The CD191 provides a quality of sound that is rare even in esoteric equipment, let alone a moderately priced deck. The reason is the combination of ultra wide band response and Dolby C noise reduction circuitry.
The CD191 gives you spectacular frequency response of 20Hz to 21kHz (±3dB) with any tape formulation. This means an exceptionally faithful reproduction in the high frequency range.
And thanks to Dolby C, the signal to noise ratio is 72dB, keeping tape noise inaudible.
The CD191 also incorporates features that give you both extra convenience and added control over your recordings. With the Auto Repeat System engaged, the CD191 will automatically rewind and replay a tape once it has reached the end.
And for precision recording, you also get a bias fine trim that lets you adjust the bias precisely to the tape you are using.
Simply put, the CD191 gives you fidelity far superior to any deck in its price range. Almost as good, in fact, as our more expensive cassette decks."

Single Well Denon Cassette Deck in very good condition DRM-500Single Well Denon Cassette Deck in very good condition, tested and working nicely.
This Denon DRM-500 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B/C and HX-Pro noise reduction, it was first sold by Denon in 1989 with a manufacturer suggested retail price of USD $250 and discontinued 2 years later in 1991.
The main features of the Denon DRM-500 are: 2 heads, mechanical 3 digit tape counter and memory stop, automatic tape type selection and capable of handling normal, chrome and metal tapes, belt driven single-capstan transport.
Typical front loading cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on the left side of the deck. Tape eject is operated mechanically and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well.
Level meters used on the DRM-500 are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the DRM-500 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.
Dolby C-type used in the DRM-500 provides 20 dB of noise reduction above about 1,000 Hz, fully doubling the amount given by B-type. The Dolby HX PRO system provides precise bias control during recording to reduce distortion and improve linearity in the high-frequency range, the result is recorded sound that is highly faithful to the original. The 19kHz multiplex pilot signal present in FM stereo broadcasts can cause false triggering of the noise reduction system. The switchable MPX filter of the DRM-500 filters out the pilot signal, and assuring proper Dolby processing of FM stereo programs.
For undisturbed listening a jack connector for a pair of stereo headphones is supplied. Connection to other audio components for playback can be achieved by a RCA cable and recording from a source by a RCA cable.
