Re: Lag when playing tapes on Yamaha KX-W232 dual cassette deck

There is a short lag (about 0.25 sec), when switching the the tape monitor between "Source" and "Tape" (playback and recording) on the amp's source selector. The cause is the physical gap between the playback-head, and the recording-head on the cassette deck - it's not a malfunction - It's simply how magnetic recording works
