    SACD fans?

    Excellent. I've got an 80s pressing of that one, too. I'll get the new one!

    SACD fans?

    I didn't know about a remaster, and I love that album. How new is new? I see a 2018 on OMD's site.

    Redboy’s garage gets an Easter upgrade

    "I had no idea," as they say. I have a 2238B in a wood case in the basement here. Probably less desirable than yours, but those prices do get a fella wonderin' . . .

    Cassettes, again: Nakamichi LX-5

    I do love those multicolored buttons. The Tascams that I had were like the Teac that you pictured. Very robust decks. Sorry to hear about your performance recordings. That’s a shame.

    Cassettes, again: Nakamichi LX-5

    You should get a deck! But if you don't, I'll take that Angel Olsen. (Kidding, though I remember you telling me about buying that tape. No doubt she's a big deal now, but I love the early albums the most. "The Waiting"--I mean, c'mon.) I'm with you, John. Some of these tapes are also dubs and...

    Cassettes, again: Nakamichi LX-5

    Guess I've been thinking about cassettes more and more after seeing one of the vids from John DeVore's YouTube channel.

    Gates CB-500. Big.

    Thanks for the description! Guess I need to get to work. Karmadon, right? I hope that he's still making them. I need a couple. . . Do the CB77 and the CB500 share the linkages that you describe?
