    Pyle Pro PT649D reviews

    PT649D Rackmountable Dual Cassette Player is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from As Basic as they Come I spoke with a B&H representative prior to purchasing the Pyle PT649D. I was in need of a basic cassette deck to retrieve music from aging cassette tapes. Despite its low price, it was sold as a pro deck, so some questions, I felt didn't need to be asked. I was immediately disappointed upon receipt of the deck. There was no headphone jack. There was only a counter for the recording side of the deck. And, there was no Dolby noise reduction...only the cheaper, generic dynamic noise reduction. I would not recommend this deck for anyone concerned about pro quality features or doing serious recording or playback work.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does NOT fit a standard 19 rack. CAUTION !!! Does NOT fit a standard 19 rack. CAUTION !!! This unit ships with attachable rack ears, however the rack spacing is approximately 3/8 too short for a standard 19 rack (see pic). B&H was great about it, and offered a refund. I decided to contact Pyle for the correct size rack ears, and their Electronic Engineering Technician/Tech Support management/Product Research and Development person offered NO solution. Build quality feels cheap. It does play a cassette and was inexpensive, so I give the Pyle PT649D two stars. I purchased this unit to transfer a cassette to Pro Tools, and it worked. You get what you pay for... B&H gets 5 stars - yet again !!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Defective unit, replacement is OK. On the unit originally shipped, the B (record) deck did not always take up the tape, resulting in tangled and crinkled tape. Exchanged for another unit which works OK so far. How it's going to be used: Although her cassette machine is long dead, a friend has a large collection of cassettes from years ago. She wants to be able to listen to them, possibly converting some to CD's. A real plus: The sound quality is VERY good. Will probably not use the recording feature much. But I notice that while recording, the input audio doesn't pass through to the output jacks. This is unusual, but actually a good feature because you can't get feedback. I gave it three stars because after receiving a defective machine, I don't quite trust this one yet. If it turns out to be reliable I would give it four stars. Not quite five, because the feel of the tape control buttons (especially RECORD) is sort of clunky.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Basic Deck For some time now I've wanted to acquire a cassette deck to transfer some irreplaceable recordings to cd. I looked all over. Couldn't find any friends with one to loan, found some scary looking decks in pawn shops, then I searched the net and came up with this one. B&H had the best price. ... The deck is nothing fancy, no remote, very few features but it works great and sounds excellent. Perfect solution.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good deal for $ This deck does not have the precision fit and feel of an audiophile deck, but I'm able to play my tapes again without the hassle of trying to convert the tapes to computer files. The sound is OK but tapes are inherently not hi-fidelity. The dynamic noise reduction doesn't seem to duplicate Dolby - I thought it might since the patent has probably long expired on the Dolby noise reduction. Instead it kind of muffles the entire high end if you put that switch on. It's a little closer to Dolby noise reduction to just put the chrome tape switch on, but I don't mind a little tape noise. Most of my tapes are of concerts where there wasn't great fidelity and a lot of audience noise in the first place. I'm not getting noticeable wow or flutter, yet, but of course, this isn't some Nakamichi tape machine that was reviewed in a hi-fi magazine. Those machines cost well over $ in the old days - and several hundred dollars more now - and didn't even have dubbing to another drive, like this one. Dubbing to another drive is kind of ridiculous, because who can you make a mix tape for these days? - nobody has a tape player anymore. Would have been better for them to just make one high precision tape drive on this for a hi-fidelity rack mount, but the dubbing drive might come in handy some day. Right now, it just allows me to load in two tapes at a time for playback. So, anyway, you get what you pay for. Still, in 1980, you could get a better quality double drive tape machine in an entertainment system packaged with a decent phono and FM and equalizer for under $. So they used to make these cheap decks by the millions. I guess companies got out of the tape business because tapes weren't really half the hi-fidelity of digital, and have all kinds of moving parts that are difficult to assemble and can fail. I wish you could still get a simple Sony or Akai tape machine anymore, since I have lots of tapes. I would expect that first one and then the other drive on this will fail, like my old tape decks, but then I will only be out about $. One of my old ones was pretty good with all kinds of solenoid switches and dual motors, but it failed eventually. That's life. This one is probably equal to a cheap Optonica player I had. I wish it was worth fixing the old decks but I can't even find anyone who does that anymore and if I did, it would cost more than $. It's the downfall of American culture that it's way cheaper to just keep getting Chinese or Indonesian tape machines (or vacuums or whatever) than to repair a high quality machine. Someone could make a decent living learning how to replace the belts on old cassette decks for dinosaurs like me, but I don't see anybody local for that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price for (so far) good equipment I was about to launch into digitizing a bunch of cassette tapes; but by the time I got around to it, my old cassette player had died. So I found this one at a price I was totally comfortable with. I haven't tested it so much, just a bit, but so far I'm impressed with how it works and sounds. I'd be happier if it only had a single cassette deck (I don't need to dub cassette-to-cassette) and if it weren't so big and bulky and if the design (the look of it) were nicer. Kind of ugly. But overall completely happy with the price/quality.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's junk the first recorder was defective. the door wouldn't close. the second recorder stopped recording after 5 months. It would jam and destroy my tapes. I wouldn't recommend this recorder to anyone. It's junk.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for digitizing tapes. True to tape Quality I work for a woman with an extensive collection of old tapes (circa 1970). She needs them digitized and cleaned. We were using the ION digitizer but the sound quality was awful. I got this and it's so much better. It has a noise reduction button that makes it so much clearer that I barely have to retouch the sound files. The one issue is the decks are difficult to close sometimes, they have to be pushed in a very particular way. But otherwise it's great!
