The CT-757 is the best single capstan model in the Pioneer 1990-1991 line-up, with the dual capstan CT-959 above it only.

I recently bought the CT-757. The very one appeared to be as much out of alignment, a tape deck can be. One simply could not bear to use the deck. After 2...3 days of hard work, phone calls and driving around, the deck now appears quite in tact.

I own, have previously owned, several Pioneer deck models. I also have experienced more than 100 deck models by many brands, since early 70's. I must say, the CT-757 is one swell machine for a cassette deck. The sound is just as beautiful as is the reference deck CT-939's, I bought brand new in 1989.

The human ear can record, recognize frequencies up to the personal limit only. By all reason, one can ask whether it counts if a cassette deck is reported to reproduce, say 25...20.000 Hz versus the 15...22.000 Hz the CT-757 does, on type II and IV tapes. It counts, in my opinion for sure. The low end by the CT-757 plays earthquaking, with high-quality tapes, recorded from the CD [my loudspeakers run from 20 Hz up]. My ear in the low end, by a recent test picks up from 21 Hz up, and the deck's frequency response in the low end truly makes a difference.

The high end, then. Just great. And the overall sound by the CT-757 simply is hifi. For example for some Onkyo and Teac top models I might say, get lost, it's hifi sound we're now talking. Then again, this is just my experience and opinion.

The CT-757 is of the very best single capstan 3-headers I ever experienced. Adding to the excellent sound quality, operating the deck is pure joy. One of course might wish, the very precise twin-range level meter could be twin-colored, too, yet this is pure nonsense.

I believe, the one previously reviewed this deck, with the nickname *coa75*, forgot to rate the deck. 2,5 just cannot be true, considering his commenting. I rate the CT-757 in stars 4,5 only, and I just cannot explain to myself why not 5,0.
