    I see this is an old thread but since I’m new here and the Tascam 40,50 and 60 series decks are not mentioned a lot, I thought I’d show how I have set my Tascam 42NB tape deck up so I can use an external repro preamp, I’ve wired the repro head out to RCA connectors on the back tape deck, I used the original cables that came from the repro head to the internal preamp, this works out great because I don’t have remove or rewire cables to the repro head and if I want to put it back to stock I just have reconnect the cables to the stock internal preamp, I’ve included some photos that shows what I did,

    I tested this set up by connecting to a MC phono preamp and there was plenty of gain and no hum and sounded very good even though the EQ was off.

      This would seem like a fine idea. Great basic machine too.

    I have used Mogami W-2549 for many audio cables,just find something like Canare rca's and terminate, and unlike the oil salesman they state the specs.

        What is "a SW center off." Thanks.

      It's a type of selector switch. This keeps both outputs form being connected at the same time even for an instant
      the shown switch have tire positions
      left middle right
      middle is off no output external or internal.
      Thr Machine works fine so far I'll be connecting it to my system today.
      Whet tape should I play of yours ?
