I used to have a Sony pro Walkman but sold it long ago. We also used to use Marantz machines at college which were very good as I recall.

I see you can still get new 'shoebox' players.

Uher made some small cassette recorders (larger than than a Walkman, but much less than 17" wide) that were good quality both in terms of the audio reproduction and the build.

I have a CR210 (not for sale!) which is stereo and has auto-reverse in play mode.

Be warned that they can be tricky to work on, there is a lot packed into a small box, but they are worth it

I now have the required socket to make up a power lead. Before I go ahead I wanted to check something.

On opening up the socket (or is it a plug? - you know what I mean anyway, the bit that goes into the tape machine) it looks to me as though the mains cables are to be soldered in place.

Is that correct? I was expecting some sort of arrangement similar to a mains plug with screwed terminals.

They are the solder type. There wouldn't be enough room for screw terminals.

The part you have there is this description: Cable ended 2 pin socket, whereas the part already fitted in the machine is designated: Chassis mounted 2 pin plug with switch.

Thanks. As you say, it does look a bit tight in there.
