I find the sound life-like, and recording (with HX Pro engaged) as accurate as that of my top model Denon. This is an excellent value cassette deck.

The RS-BX606 either has or lacks many features, hinting this tape deck is not to be taken seriously. 3-head deck with just one capstan, bias adjust only, no HX Pro, no backlit cassette compartment, mechanical cassette door...

But what this deck has and does, is well placed and well done. Surprisingly pleasant audio, from low tones to the high. By the ear, very good frequency response. For the optimal recording experience, there is the 2-range level indicator with peak hold, even though with just 1 dB deviation. The display is very clear and informative, and the buttons are logically placed: fun to use even in a dim-lit room.



re: RS-BX606

Ive had this deck for a while and have used it to play pre-recorded cassettes flawlessly. I tried to record with it from vinyl and one channel records lower than the other. I saw a review of the Sony TC-K590 where the reviewer had the same problem with that deck. Is there a way I can get both Left and Right channels to record evenly. Maybe demagnetising or cleaning of the heads. Or does it need to be repaired. As I said it plays pre-recorded cassettes very well.

I found the problem. I coudnt find the record balance control. I made a successful recording tonight and it turned out great. On a used TDK CDing 90 tape. Both channels recorded equally.
