So I was at my locale goodwill and i was going to buy some film for my camera that my sister got me. I saw the film and realized that it was the wrong kind of film for the camera which sucked but. That when I saw it. The Sharp RT - 3388a ( i don't know why the threes are like that but any ways) I walked up to it to see if it worked and it sort of did. It did not play (which sucks but at lest it dose something) and it did not Rewind how ever it does Fast Foreword I do want to add that the cassette deck use to light up but for some reason the lights were vary dim and they also flickered in sears weirdly enough. But that make me think that theirs something wrong with wiring (or with the cassette deck) and not the light bulbs. I also checked to see if the Computer Controlled™ did some (because i know that's one of the problems with these type of cassette deck) and in happy to say it displays something!!! (here's the "Computer" in the clock setting and my index finger in the shot ) not surprisingly the light was burned out. In which i had to use a flash light and is the reason why it looks like 12:44 AM instead of PM Now here's it in counter mode. The deck will default to the counter when you turn it on and then back to the clock when you put it in to stand by. oh and by the way the LCD was what got me sold on this as well as the price which ill get to soon but i still want to mention a few things like. The timer function being the main selling point of this cassette deck. Yep say good bye to you timer boxes (if you even have one) this cassette deck has its own built in timer and you can and yes it say's in the manual dais change your amplifier and you sources though the cassette deck. but to be fair the plug is rated for 400 watts max out so i could be over reacting over nothing but the idea of it is crazy at lest to me it is. but I guess amplifiers don't take as much power as I thought they do. Oh well away from this filler that took me half an hour to write out and back to the main point. The counter or the computer has a cool timer feature that you can program to go on and turn off to the desired time you want. example: i want to record a album but i have to be at school by 8:23 am and i need to lave the house by 7:45 to catch the bus. so ill tell it to go off at 8:30 am while I'm at school and the album is an hour long so ill have it turn off at 9:30 am and now i just set the power switch to auto and it takes over from there. and that how the counter oh sorry the Computer Controlled ™ works also the V.U. works vary nicely as you saw in the first picture and that's really all except the price. yeas buy fare the cheapest cassette deck i have ever bought and i own a bought 7 cassette decks. technically 8 but we don't mention the ION 2 Computer Ca-ca, ca, cas, cassette deck. Ill wright about the deck and my experience with it another time. what did i pay for it well just look for your self 9 DOLLARS !!! well more like 10 but still before this, the cheapest cassette deck that I had was my JVC KD D50 which i payed 16 DOLLARS so this was 6 dollars less and does not really work but 10 bucks. for me that is the cheapest cassette deck I've ever bought. and here's some more Awesome pics!!! for y'all well that's all thanks for reading this post or looking at it if you did not read it. all will be posting more stuff later. OK now that all i have to say/type bye for now.
