CPC 664 & 6128 tape lead

The Amstrad CPC 664 & 6128 came with a built in disk drive. In order to load programs from tape you needed an external tape deck (just about any cassette recorder would do) and the appropriate lead.

Below is a wiring diagram showing how to make a cable that allows you to connect a tape deck to a 664 or 6128


Wiring diagrams on this site are provided as is. I cannot be held responsible if you damage your equipment or yourself, either through errors in the wiring diagrams or through any errors that you may make when assembling the lead. Also remember that electricity (especially mains electricity) is dangerous. Take care when working with it.
