Re: What have you just bought?

A new pinch roller (£2.85 Ebay) to help in re-furbishing my Akai GXC-38D cassette deck. It'll need slight fettling to fit as it's not an exact Akai part but it's close enough.

I'll also need a suitable main belt as it's got a kink in it from having not been used for some time.

I'll have to bring the electronics up gently to allow the capacitors to re-form. I may need to replace them. All the switches and sliders will need the magic engineers' spray. Be nice to have a vintage bit of kit working again.

Blimey I remember those from the days when Akai wasn't a very decent hi-fi brand.

Hope this is going in the what have you fixed lately thread...

Akai tape decks had a good name, don't know about the rest. I also have the reel-to-reel DS4000. (Dolby @ 7 1/2 inches / sec was always decent) This always looks good with the metal spools.

Likely.

Want these back to be able to play some classic recordings from The Old Grey Whistle Test and Sounds of the Seventies including some live concerts

Popped in the freezer for a future Sunday dinner.

already got one. Just needed a boxset in 4K to test it. Luckily the Xbox One X has a 4K blu Ray player 🙂

Have they fixed the issues with the Xbox One X UHD player as it was proved to be really terrible compared to the Xbox One S or other UHD players, i think it needed a software update?

Looks like it maybe fixed or have 1 soon.

Re: What have you just bought?

Bought, or more accurately redeemed the mortgage on my house using some of my inheritance with a CHAPS transfer at the bank this morning. I will officially own the freehold. YAY!
