Cassette Deck - Advent Model 201
Street value: $40, Sentimental value: Priceless.
I love collecting "firsts." Over the years I've been fortunate enough to run across the first RCA portable 45 RPM record player, the first Phone Mate telephone answering machine, the first Hi-Fi Henry Kloss table radio. . .now, I introduce the first, hi fidelity cassette deck, - the Advent Model 201. This guy knows much more than I do about this deck and its cousins, so I'll point you to his site HERE.
How does it sound? Dunno. . .haven't plugged it in yet. I'll let you know in a couple of days.
If you have any photos or stories about your Advent 201 or 200 series tape deck, please leave a comment or email me.
