1976 Hacker HCD-1000; Cassette Unit
Adding further to my 1970’s audio setup, I was in the market for a 70’s cassette deck. I didn’t fancy one of those shiny silver units and certainly not the matt black ones. I was specifically after something with wood and preferably not Sony. I have a Sony TC-131SD and to be honest I didn’t like it, in fact I’ve never much liked anything from Sony be it audio or visual.
Anyway, last week I found this rather pleasing little gem. A Hacker HCD1000, still with its original box, paperwork, allegedly working and at a Buy-it-now price I was comfortable with. Today it arrived, it was unboxed and happily arrived safe, here’s some pics. Later I’ll get it hooked up to an amp and see if it does indeed work. I’ll also scan the brochure and manual for the library.
Still looking for a schematic (see here).
