I'll need to check, but it's a really old Sony. The only thing is that I'll probably be recording this with a laptop, and those don't have line-level inputs, just mic input. (though the stuff on the tape isn't that clear to begin with, so I doubt it makes too much difference - I'd hate to distort it further though) I don't think he's used this in years BTW, given that I had to replace the crumbling cords to even safely plug it in. (semi-safely, that is - I tripped the GFCI a few times on accident here) Speaking of which, I like how the AC cords on both of them were crumbling, but the wires inside the old amp were just fine. (even the part of the AC cord inside it was crumbling - of all things...)
I have a receiver with an amp built in that I could use for this - is it safe to connect the phono jacks from this to the input, and then connect the speaker output to a 3.5mm cable or something and record from there? (since that'd normally be WAY too loud, but the input is pretty soft here) I'm hoping the sound will be a bit clearer this way.
