re: RS-TR165

Avoid this unit - or any other technics cassette decks from the same era - at all costs. There's a small plastic gear that WILL break and unless you have access to drawings and a 3D printer it is not replaceable. The gear is designed to flex and if you if you replace it with one from the same era that too WILL break. Alternatively if you manage to print a solid one the wheel will jam up FF and REW and that won't work instead. Its an incredibly poor design.

Other than that what else to say. Cheap heads produce a lifeless sound with no high frequency response to speak of. Not worthy of the name "hifi".
