The W-890R-B Dual Auto-Reverse Cassette Deck from Teac is a straightforward, great sounding dual well cassette deck. It boasts a wide frequency range, Dolby Noise Reduction and Dolby HX Pro Headroom Extension. The bi-directional dual deck design makes it ideal for dubbing and continuous-looping applications.

Each deck can record, so you can make two masters of the same source at the same time. The decks can also be used for recording or playback applications. The W-890R-B has an RTZ function and a repeat playback feature, and you can adjust the pitch and tempo during playback. The front panel has a microphone input, allowing for spontaneous recording either solo or mixed with a line level source. Additionally, this cassette deck allows for dubbing either at normal or high speed.

          I use the dubbing.
          I record music from my tuner, listen to prerecord tapes
          And the remote is useful.

            This is a vast improvement over the TEAC dual auto-reverse cassette deck I've been using for about 16 years. I'm really pleased with it's quality and very happy that I decided to replace the old one before cassette decks can no longer be found.

              I've had a Teac reel-to-Reel recorder for many years with flawless service. That's why I went for Teac in a cassette deck. I have an ongoing project to record all my music to mp3 files and this unit serves admiralably with my cassette material. I recommend this unit highly. Ralph Bueckman, Fenton, Missouri.

                Its every thing wanted and more. Listening to my cassette tapes are what relaxes me. The music of the late 50's to mid 70's has a special kind of sound that does not exist these days.

                  Use the deck for transferring old tape audio files to digital. Sounds good, works great.

                  Donated all my other decks to my daughter's schools a few years back not thinking that I'd need one in the future.

                  Wish the headphone output had level control. Regardless, output ultimately routes through a usb interface, not much need for the headphone out.
                  Good purchase, received quickly and and perfect condition.

                  Thanks again B&H!

                      I owned this *identical unit for over 15 years. I have many tapes from years back many of big time bands,some of which have not been transcribed to CD's . I transcribe many to mp3 format onto my computer, In my eighties I have used a lot of audio devices in my time! *This unit has pitch control a new addition that my previous unit did not. I am so delighted!!! I am a musician and play along with many of the songs which you can only due if you are in the same key!!! This unit is simple and strait forward to use.
                      I was so delighted to see the unit is still available. Unlike so many other user friendly quality audio devices I have used in the past that are no longer available. Newer ones are more complicated to operate. Quality has been sacrificed on many of newer electronic products in my opinion.

                        I use it everyday. The specs are decent the price is reasonable. I have copied some of my old cassettes and they sound as good as the originals. Easy to use and understand directions.. I would recommend this to any that wants a cassette. I have a couple Harman Kardon ones but they need service and the end result isn't any better than this Teac.

                          This is an excellent all-around cassette player. Anyone who has a great mix tape collection needs to buy one of these before they are gone. I hadn't been able to listen to my tapes for more than 10 years. I was amazed by the sound quality & the stereo separation. Worth every penny!

                                  My wife and I do a nursing home ministry and I use the W-890-B for recording songs that we play for the people. This deck appears to have some sort of suppressor that does not allow it to record much abopve the "Odb" recordimng leavel. Both decks work very well and for the price you could not ask for a better deck. I am well pleased with it. I looked at some pro machines that did not have any more features than the W-890-B, and they were triple the price of this unit and I doubt that they functioned any better.

                                        It's hard to find cassette decks other than boom boxes these days. This one hits the mark -- it sounds nice, the controls are solid, and it's straightforward to use. And, it was a decent price. Other than this one, you have to pay upwards of $450 for studio-quality equipment. If you're just looking to listen to your old cassette collection, this will do the trick. Don't bother with anything cheaper, unless you'd be happy with a self-contained boom box.

                                          I got this to replace a unit that I had that would "relay" record, but had finally croaked. I wasn't sure that this unit would do that just by reading the manual online, but it in fact will record both sides of the tape on deck one and then automatically switch to deck two. It will do this in "timer" mode also.
                                          All the other basic features are good, as was expected.
                                          Of course, good packing and shipping from Band H. I have purchased from them for many years.

                                            This player was purchased to replace a 15 year old Scott player of the same features. I would rate this player superior.
