I finally caved in an bought a deck this afternoon while thrift store hunting, a Pioneer CT-S99R for 25 Euros. The machine was "broken" and had a broken rca male plug sticking in the back, all i had to do was replace the fuse.... 25 euros for a dbx, NR b & C, cassette deck. Anyways I opened her up, and took a look around. I was able to clean a couple sections here and there using 90+ alcohol and q-tips, but I can't really take care of the electronics, I don't know how to. What tips/advice can you give to a new owner? Also does anyone have any recommended cheap DAC? it's to connect to my laptop and from my laptop to the deck.
