My humble recommendation to tape deck lovers...
« on: February 02, 2015, 04:00:05 pm »
Upgrade your tape deck standard power cord to an "audiophile type". It's mandatory. I'm using DH Labs Power Plus Reference with great connectors. My tape deck is an Otari MX-5050 with Bottlehead's Eros tape preamp and tape path upgrade.

Maybe a Bottlehead power cord?  They have improved my Foreplay and Eros.  Next will be my Paramours.  I'm set up for them but I have to drill a square hole in the bases for the IEC connector.

You are right Bottlehead power cord is very good. I have one. But I needed a longer run for the deck. It's incredible the glare removed !
