Cassette Tape Recorder

Description (Brief)
The miniaturization of electronic components has allowed designers to add features to audio products that previously would have been impractical or simply too expensive. This TEAC model A-170 cassette tape deck includes input equalizing controls more typical of studio equipment. The donor, who used this tape deck as a teenager, added the “do not touch” admonition in an effort to prevent family and friends from changing the settings.
