SIMPLIFIED OPERATING PROCEDURE
The ANTENNA ATTENUATOR can be switched
into or out of the anlenna circuit. Use the
ANTENNA ATTENUATOR switch in the "lN"
position only when overloading is apparent from

dial and is affecting reception of a desired station.
Overloading may also cause severe distortion which
will not disappear with proper antenna orientation.

recorders with your receiver, To avoid confusiön in
the following discussion, reference to "lape
monitoring" assumes that the recorder is equipped
with separate record and playback heads and
separate record and playback preampli{iers. To
further simplify this discussion, a tape recorder
normally connected to the rear panel facilities will
be referred to as the "main" recorder, A separate
recorder normally connecled to the front panel
jacks will be referred to as the "external" recorder.
This general arrangement is illustrated in Figure 7.
RECORDING AND PLAYBACK
The simplest system involves only one
tape
recorder, whose inpurs are connected to the TAPE
OUT jacks (on the rear panel) and whose playback
outputs are connected to the TAPE lN jacks. An
To make a recording. set the selector switch to the
desired proqram source and put the recorder into
the "record" mode of operation. With the TAPE
MONITOR pushswitch in the "out" position, the
original program source will be heard. By depressing rhe TAPE MONITOR push$/vitch (monilor),
rl'e "rpsulls" ol tl^e re(ordi49 while ,l is in
progress, will be heard. A word of caution: With
the tape recorder in the record mode, be careful
no1 to place the selector switch in the "TAPE"
position when the TAPE MONITOR pushswitch is
"out." Doing this feeds the recorder's output
signals bäck to its ;nput terminals, eslablishing a
revertrerating loop. l{ the recorder's playback level
happens to be set higher than its record level, the
resulting echo or "howl" will rapidlV incredse in
volume level. No harm wiil be done to the recorder
or the rece;ver, but the audible effect from the
loudspeakers can be annoying.
PLAYBACK
To listen to a tape already
recorded, put the
recorder in the playback mode of operation and
turn the selector switch to "TAPE". When playing
tape on än external recorder, the recorder's
playback outputs should be connected to the
dubbing lN jack on the fron{ panel. When playing a
tape on the main recorder, make sure nothing is
plügged into the dubbing lN jack, otherwise the
main recorder's playback outputs will be inlernally
disconnected in the receiver,
IVIAKING TWO R ECORDINGS
SIMULTANEOUSLY
This can be done by conn€lcting two tape recorders
to rhe recpiver, as 5hown in figurp /. lo 'nonitol

lN jack and depress the TAPE IVIONITOR push

RECORDING
A
LONG.DURATION PROGRAM
With two tape recorders connected to the l\4odel
2245 as shown ;n Figore 7, a continuous recording
can be made withoul losing parts of the program
durinq reel chanqes. For example, with the selector
switch set to the desired program source, and the
TAPE MONITOR pushswitch in the "out" po
sition, start the recording on the main recorder,
then prepare the external recorder to beqin record
ing before the main recorder is about 10 run out of
tape. As soon as the external recorder is started,
arnple time will be available to reload the mäin
recorder in preparation for further recording. This
process can be repeated indefinitely with both
machines. At anv time during the recording ses
sion, the recording can be monilored by depressing
the TAPE I!4ONITOR pushswirch.

audio signal is doubled into 3BkHz after two stage
amplification and then the 3BkHz signäl is further
amplified to the level necessary to drive the diode
switchinq circuit. The composite audio signal is
split into the right änd left channeis by the 38kHz
switch;ng signal in the diode matrix circuit. The
right and left channel audio signals are processed in
the crossralk cancellinq circuit which L]tilizes com

The stereo demodulator circuit has been designed

in the stereo demodulator circuit for improved

to minimize annoying "pop" noise for velvet

The Al\4 tuner ponion of the l\,4odel 2245 has been
provided with a tuned RF ämplifier incorporaling a

The ceramic filter utilized in the Al\.4 lF ampliJier

Following the A[,4 lF amplif ier, tl're Al\,4 detector
recovers the audio modulation and provides this
signal to the selector switch.
The Al\4 tuner and lF amplifier are subjected to the
action of an effective aulomalic volume control
circuit which maintains constant the level of all
stations in the Al\,4 band.
SELECTOR SWITCH
Your l\,4odel 2245 has the cäpability to operate
from a variety of program sources, e.9., AM or FM
broadcasts, tlrrntable (PHoNoi, tape recorders
(TAPE) or anv other source capable of providing
IOO millivolts output level (AUX). The selector

TAPE SIGNALS
With the exception o{ tape input, all high leve
inputs are {ed directly to the s€lector switch. Tape
input is routed through the front panel dubbing lN
jack to a section of the TAPE MONIToR switch.
The dubbinq lN jack is a three conductor stereo
jack which has two built_in switches, one for each
channel. Normally, these switches are closed,

The volume control attenuates both channels

input of the tone amplifier, there is no possibility
of overloading lhe dmplilier stages under maximum

CUITS
The pr+driver circuit ampli{ies the signal from the

circuil the amplifier stages are direct'coupled
through to the loudspeakers (and headphones)
providing inslantaneous recovery from overdrive or
short circuit condilion!. ThF oLrrpul slage consists
of a pair of push p!ll, complementary symmetry
transistors (PNP, NPNI. The electronic protective
circuit senses the peak output current and limits
the current to the driver' transistors at a safe,
predetermined value. This current I imiting protects
the driver and output transistors under overdrive
and short circuit conditions and effectively
prevents the driver and output transistor from
exceeding sa{e operating conditions. This instantaneous actinq safety circuit gives constant and
unobtrusive protection wiThout causing annoying
program interruptions.
CAUTION: The loudspeaker terminals of one
channel should never be connected directly in
