Question if I might. The receiver has a Tape Monitor function with a switch on front that toggles between “Source” and “Tape”. On the back there are in/outs for Aux, Record Out, and Playback. Are the ‘‘Playback’ and “Record” inputs for the tape monitor function? See picture below. There is a DIN connector on front for tape deck so I am assuming what those sets of inputs are for since there is only one AUX input. I am so confused :unsure:

Yes.

The Din connector on the front should be a duplication of the RCA in the back, either will work.

OK, so you are saying that I could use the “Playback” input for another source? I currently am running my Q8 deck through the Aux.

Thank you. Will try it out tonight. Am excited to get it set up and hooked up to my other pieces. Right now it is just on the floor looking sad :( I really love the thing so far and I am glad that I ran across that YouTube video that featured it. Haven’t been able to find it since but oh well.....it certainly got me salivating for one myself. :p

Well I got the Technics integrated into my system now and she is off the floor. I am pretty happy with the system now but think I might try to get a better Q8 deck.......maybe one that records. Or I could go for a SACD player but would need one with a very small footprint. Not sure if those are even available? I have changed my mind about the Fosgate processor after not using it for awhile. I was kind of down on it but actually it sounds pretty darn good. Maybe because I was listening to nothing but 8 tracks there for awhile 🤔. I still have the Tate that I wanted to recap but haven’t got around to bring it to the shop. Maybe i’ll just stick it back on EBay if I proscrastinate much longer.

By the way, there is another unit just like mine up on buyee.jp right now if anyone is interested. It would be nice to have someone else own one also. Another club member so to speak.
