Have you used your calculator for something that was not really math related?

Astounding! I had (actually still have) this exact tape drive, which I was never able to find another owner at the time

The TA-2055 seems to have been a quite common model in its time, at least in Germany after it had received a favorable review in a HiFi magazine. ;-) I bought my tape deck two years later, by then the 2055 had been replaced by the TA-2500. Which may have been a good choice as well, but finally I got an Akai GX-F51 (the little 2-head brother of the very popular GX-F71) which I was offered for a very good price. ;-)

Yes, that was really a nice one. Like most Nakamichis of the time.

By the way, re. counter <> timer conversions:
