Yamaha KX-580 Cassette Deck

The KX-580 is a really fine deck - very steady despite the single cap, and sonically excellent. I have the SE model, but they are close for all practical purposes. The GF head I personally think is every bit as good as the 12-layer amorphous heads previously used by Yamaha in their higher-end machines.

This a good picture - being black they are a little difficult to get right.
