    I have 2 decks, a Nakamichi CR1-a, and a Nakamichi CR7-a.

    I would like to make a mix tape and then duplicate it. I think I should obviously make it on the CR7. However when I want to duplicate it, should I play it back in the CR1 and have the CR7 record, or play on the 7 to record on the 1? One of the tapes, I plan to keep, and the other will get sent off to a friend and played on who knows what.

    Thoughts?

    I would think do the recording (both times) on the CR7, assuming it's in good repair.

    My experience with trying to copy one cassette tape to another has been disappointing.
    Perhaps because both tapes are operating at the same speed, which doubles issues such as woe and flutter.

    Anyway R2R/cassette copies work great in both directions.

    I would recommend you either follow Oldvinyldude's advice or record to both decks simultaneously.
