Tascam 202MKVII overview

  • 1Description

The Tascam 202MKVII is a rackmount USB dual cassette deck designed to deliver flexible cassette recording and transfer functions for musicians, singers, and archivists in home, project, and commercial studios. It features two twin-head cassette decks, a wireless remote control with AAA batteries, and support for multiple tape types. A USB 2.0 Type-B output is provided for easy A/D conversion and digital audio transfers to a computer.

Use one-touch dubbing for straightforward cassette duplication, or initiate parallel recording to simultaneously record the same source to both tapes. Welcome luxuries include a pitch control for Tape 1, selectable noise reduction, and repeat playback. In addition to the standard stereo RCA input and output, the 202MKVII boasts a 1/4" mic input and a 1/4" stereo headphone output. Level controls are present for the mic input, headphone output, and recording gain.

For karaoke and announcements, a 1/4" mic input can be mixed with Tape 1 and recorded to Tape 2

    Tascam 202MKVII reviews

    202MKVII Rackmount USB Dual Cassette Deck is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 'real' good cassette deck There aren't many Stereo Cassette Decks to choose from anymore - and this one is (in my opinion) the best one currently out there...it looks and sounds just as good as the old time ones that you can only buy on used auction sites and from "refurbisers"- but that's a BIG gamble - they usually don't work - and this one certainly does. This is actually very similar to (almost exactly like) Tascams' (long discontinued) 202 Mark III - only with a USB port in the back It's a dual well deck - which I normally don't like - but this one has some good features - such as parallel recording (2 tapes at one time from one source) and tape to tape dubbing - both pretty handy for people who produce their own cassette tapes of music, voice, and/or other sounds. As someone who enjoys analog music and also the 1/8" cassette tape format I am really glad to see this deck return - I hope Tascam will re-release some of their single well "super pro" models some day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Around! This is the best machine for digitizing old cassettes, even superior to my previous Tascam deck connected via composite to an external X-FI HD soundcard, the onboard DAC is incredible, the wavform even looks different. You only need a computer, a ferrite magnet USB cable, audacity and this deck. I am the best in the world at transferring old cassettes and with this deck you can be as good as I am without any skill or years of learning, buy this!
