This feature allows the cassette player to play both sides of the tape without the listener having to turn it over. In a compact machine like a Walkman, this is done using a special four-track head.
This feature allows you to record music, speech, or other audio to your blank cassette tapes.
Line-In recording allows you to record and transfer audio from a cassette to a digital device, such as your computer.
A single deck cassette player only allows you to have one tape in the cassette player at a time. This means that when you want to listen to a different tape, you will have to switch it out. A dual deck cassette player allows you to have two cassettes in the player at the same time, allowing for one tape to end and the other tape to begin.
High Speed Dubbing
This feature allows you to record from one cassette tape to another at high speeds.
This feature allows you to privately listen to your favorite cassette tapes using a pair of headphones.
2 Head vs. 3 Head
A 2 head cassette deck uses a single head for the recording and playback functions. The second head is for erasing. A 3 head cassette deck uses separate heads for play, record, and erase for better performance. 3 head decks are arranged so that the erase head comes first, the record head second, and the playback head last in the tape path. This design lets you listen to the signal on a tape just instants after it was recorded, without interrupting the recording process.
