On a lot of receivers/amps(esp. older ones),
'Tape Out' does mean 'coming from' the
tape/cassette deck, and 'Tape In' means
what is going out of the receiver/amp to
the record deck.

From my own experience.


Other way round. Confusion can come from the fact that on a lot of amps the selected input is connected directly to the tape output*, thus one can always use 'tape output' as an unswitched input. I say always... some amps won't work this way since there are buffers in the way, and they don't pass signal backwards.

*Phono inputs are of course preamplified first.
