This answer was rated:

I'm looking to up-date my hi-fi system (my Sony system is about 20 yrs old) and
considering buying a Denon Ceol N-8BK . As I have quite a large collection of my
music on cassettes, would it be possible to connect the Sony cassette deck ref TC-S1
to this as this works well?

You should have no problem connecting your cassette deck so long as you don't want to record - only play back. Here is a photo of the back of the Denon:


You can connect the cassette deck to either of the pairs of terminals labeled Analog In. You will then be able to listen to your tapes.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
