AIWA AD-1300 Review
The AIWA AD-1300 is a desktop cassette deck on sale in 1976. This model does not appear to be as popular as its bigger brothers, the AD-1600 and AD-1800. My website registers few searches for the AD-1300 when compared to the popular AD-1800. I can understand the reasoning for this. The big brother sports all the features and quality finishes.
The AIWA AD-1300 is a competent model in its own right. The desktop cassette deck is a product of its time. This compact cassette player can sit on your table in the bedroom or a side table. This cassette player can operating in a standalone configuration using headphones. The cassette player can also connect to a midi or full sized retro audio system as well.
I am on the look out to buy an AIWA AD-1300 on the used market. I plan to connect this system to my audio gear, such as the Yamaha PSR-530 and record my sequencer songs. The recording function of this deck will give my 80's synth tracks an authentic sound.
