The audio still sounds bloody awful, but seems good enough for loading and saving Casio tapes. (The next challenge will be ZX Spectrum fast loaders when or if my "ZX Spectrum Next" finally shows up.)

I suppose I now need an FX-700P to use with the FA-2, and so it continues....

EDIT: It's the FX-702P (not the FX-700P) that uses the FA-2 cassette interface (which can also be used by the FX-501P, FX-502P, FX-601P and FX-602P).

As a follow-up, I've now obtained an FX-702P, along with another FA-2 and an FP-10 printer. (The wonders of eBay!). They all seem to work after removing ancient batteries from the peripherals and cleaning up the terminals. Now I just need to find some of the special, aluminized paper rolls for the printer (it came with a partially used roll).
