Hello, OT community.

I’m looking to digitize some extremely rare audio cassette tapes with very valuable content on it with the best playback possible (particularly Dragon Ball Z stuff, long story).

Anyway, the common word on the street is that the Nakamichi Dragon is the premiere tape deck, and I have heard samples of its playback, and it is incredible, certainly for audio cassette playback.

BUT! This Dutch guy argues that the Pioneer CT-95 is in fact the best.

The sound on that one is great too, but which one is truly the surperior deck?

Also, is it true that if you play a non-Dolby tape on a Dolby player that the quality will decline? If so, is there any way that the Dolby can be switched off?

I almost forgot, let me know if there’s a deck other than these two that you think is the best.

I hope to hear from those of you who know your stuff or just have a strong opinion on this subject.
