	Could you clarify what you mean by "tape deck"? I used an old Akai 
stereo cassette deck with no problems on my deuce at real (i.e. not that 
hybrid thing) 2 MHz speed. I did initially have some problems when 
trying to feed the mic inputs. But when I switched to feeding the line 
in inputs it worked flawlessly. For obvious reasons, skipf does not work 
at 2 MHz on a deuce.
