Connect a tape deck at 172xs

Hello , how to connect a cassette deck to my Nac 172 XS ?

Have you read the manual?

Do you want to play back and record ?

There is not a true tape in/out DIN socket on the 172 unlike most of the other amps. You could use the an.2 RCA inputs to connect a tape deck for playback and the use the line out RCA sockets if you needed to record from a source.

James many Thanks . I’ll try this way !!!

Robert many thanks . I suppose it’s the same from analogue 1 input and the line output

Yes doesn’t matter; it just consumes one input and one output.
If you are lacking input sockets there are solutions such as the beresford TC7240.

Robert this is great solution … Thank you !!!

Just be careful as it’s not a proper tape loop, AFAIK there’s no buffer here so if you have both I/c sets connected you could get a nasty loop going if you try to record from the Tape input. To be safe only have one set connected (in or out) at any one time.

In the other input ( analogue 2 ) I have a phono stage .
