INTRODUCTION
• CONTINUOUS RECORDING AND PLAYBACK
Thank you for selecting the Marantz Model PMD510 Independent
Double Cassette Deck for your audio system.
Please read these operating instructions carefully. We recommend
that you read the entire user guide before you connect or operate
the unit.
In the continuous mode, Well A will play (or record) side one,
autoreverse, play (or record) side two, and then automatically
switch to Well B, which will play (or record) side one, autoreverse,
and then play (or record) side two. In this way three hours of
uninterrupted playback or recording is possible using C-90 cassettes.
After you have reviewed the contents of this manual, we suggest
that you make all system connections before you attempt to
operate the unit.
• CASCADE CONNECTION FOR SERIAL CONNECTION
OF MULTIPLE UNITS
By connecting several PMD510s in serial via the cascade connection, multiple units can play or record continuously for logging and
other long-time recording applications. In this case, Wells A and B
of unit #1 will play (or record) as in the example above, then they
will trigger the start of continuous playback (or record) of unit #2,
and so on.
Refer to the Figures on pages 4 and 12 of this user guide.
The callout numbers on the Figures correspond to those found in
the text. All references to connections and controls are printed in
BOLD type, as they appear on the unit.
• PARALLEL RECORDING
When multiple copies of the same source are required, it is
possible to record both Well A and Well B simultaneously, in
parallel, from a single source.
PRECAUTIONS
The following precautions should be taken when operating the
equipment.
• ALL-OPTICAL AUTOREVERSE AND WELL/UNIT
SWITCHING
All autoreverse, well switching, and unit switching circuits are
optically sensing “quick autoreverse” circuits, to minimize lost
signal while reversing tape, or switching wells or units. This applies
in all playback and record modes, including autoreverse, continuous, and serial cascade modes.
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
When setting the equipment ensure that:
– the ventilation holes are not covered
– air is allowed to circulate freely around the equipment
– the equipmext is on a vibration free surface
– the equipmext will not be exposed to interference from an
external source
– the equipmext will not be exposed to excessive heat, cold,
moisture or dust
– the equipmext will not be exposed to direct sunlight
– the equipmext will not be exposed to electrostatic discharges
• In addition, never place heavy objects on the equipment.
• If a foreign body or water does enter the equipment, contact
your nearest dealer or service center.
• Do not pull out the plug by pulling on the mains lead. Hold the
plug.
• PITCH CONTROL
Each well features –15% pitch control on playback.
• METERS AND LINEAR TIME TAPE COUNTERS
Each well features independent LED bargraph meters, and linear
time (minutes and seconds) counters. The display on these counters
is only an approximate indication of minutes and seconds. It is most
accurate when using 60 minute tapes.
DOLBY B/C NR SYSTEMS
Dolby noise reduction and HX Pro headroom extention manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation. HX Pro originated by Bang & Olufsen.
The Dolby NR (Noise Reduction) systems compress and amplify
signals during recording in order to raise the signal to noise ratio on
the tape. During playback, these signals are expanded and attenuated by the same amount, in order to regain the original dynamic
range of the music. An additional result of this expansion and
attenuation is that the noise floor of the recording is reduced
significantly. Dolby B typically reduces noise by 10 dB, while Dolby
C typically reduces noise by 20 dB.
and “HX PRO” are trademarks
“DOLBY” the double-D symbol
of Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.
FEATURES
DOLBY HX PRO HEADROOM EXTENSION
The Dolby HX PRO system monitors the total amount of effective
bias during recording and instantaneously compensates for any
excess bias by reducing the deck’s bias signal level accordingly.
The system operates independently on each channel. HX PRO is
unlike a noise reduction system because it functions only during
recording and no decoding is required. Therefore, a tape recorded
with the HX PRO system can be played back on any other cassette
deck while retaining the benefits of HX PRO.
• COMPLETELY INDIVIDUAL DUAL SYSTEM
Well A and Well B can be used completely independently for both
recording and playback. There are two sets of inputs and outputs
which allow for many modes of recording and playback. Two
separate input sources can be recorded simultaneously and independently on the two decks; two different tapes can be played back
simultaneously and independently on the two decks; and lastly, it
is possible to play a cassette on one well, and record a different
source (such as a mixer) on the other well simultaneously.
There are also several modes in which the two decks work
together.

Quick Rewind
If the tape is rewound immediately after recording (do not press
STOP first), it will automatically enter stop mode at the point in the
tape where recording was started. This is very useful for listening
to a recording you have just completed, or for starting recording
over again.
Tape Types and Length
Any type of tape (Normal, Chrome, or Metal) can be used with the
PMD510. Chrome or Metal tapes have superior performance
compared to Normal Tapes. The PMD510 can sense which kind of
tape is being used, and will automatically adjust bias, EQ, etc.
Note: Dubbing starts immediately when a Dubbing button is
pressed. Be sure you have the correct tape in Well B to
avoid erasing important recordings.
C-60 or C-90 length tapes are recommended, as C-120 tapes are
often too thin, and can become entangled in the transport mechanism.
The counters are only approximate measurements of minutes and
seconds. They are most accurate with 60 minute tapes.
QUICK REVERSE
During recording or playback, the Quick Reverse function reverses
the tape travel direction quickly by means of an infrared tape
sensor.
• The cassette tapes used with this unit should have a transparent
or near-transparent leader tape. When using leaderless tape, or
a cassette with opaque leader, quick reverse will not operate,
and autoreverse will occur on a tension basis.
• When a previously recorded tape is used for two way recording,
the beginning of the reverse direction will not be erased for
about 0.3 seconds. Therefore, when using a previously recorded tape, the beginning of side B should be erased manually
prior to recording.
• Quick Reverse will not occur if the transport has been moving
for less than 15 seconds. In other words, if playback/recording
is started less than 15 seconds before the end of a side,
autoreverse will operate on a tension basis.
• The input signal is interrupted for about 1 second at the time of
Quick Reverse. The sound cannot be recorded during this time.
• Well switching and Cascade-Unit switching is also operated by
this optically sensing infrared method. All of these notes and
cautions apply to Well and Unit switching, in addition to
Autoreverse.
CONTINUOUS RECORDING
1. Insert blank cassettes into both wells. Be sure that both decks
are rewound.
2. Set the REVERSE MODE switche i to

CASCADE OPERATION
CD SYNCHRO RECORDING
(When connected to a Marantz Professional CD
player.)
Cascade Operation is the ability to automatically and continuously
play or record both sides of a tape in Well A, both sides of a tape
in Well B, and then to automatically trigger a second machine, and
continuously play or record on both sides of both tapes in machine
number two. In fact, many machines can be wired in cascade mode
for virtually limitless continuous recording/playback capability.
The CD Synchro Recording is possible only when this unit is
connected with a Marantz Professional CD player equipped with
the Sync Recording function.
The CD Synchoro Recording connection consists of a single RCA
cable which runs to the RC-5 REMOTE E input jack on the rear panel
of the PMD510, from the REMOTE output jack on the rear panel of
the Marantz CD player.
Cascade mode connections consist of a signal RCA cable which
runs from the EXTENSION REMOTE F output jack on the rear panel
of the first machine, to the EXTENSION REMOTE F input jack on
the rear panel of the next machine. See figure 3 for details.

5. Press the PLAY 5 4 button on Well A of Unit #1.
6. When well A of Unit #1 finishes, Well B of Unit #1 will start
automatically.
7. When well B of Unit #1 finishes, Well A of Unit #2 will start
automatically.
8. To stop recording, press the CONT. 6 button and STOP buttons
on all units.
ERASURE OF TAPE
When a program source is recorded onto a tape, the previously
recorded sound is erased automatically, and replaced with the new
recording. If you wish to erase a tape without recording, set the
REC LEVEL control to the minimum (0) position, and let the tape
travel in the REC mode.
Note: Input to both wells of each unit will be received from Line
Input A on each unit. Line Input B is not used on any unit.
AUTO TAPE SELECTOR
This unit is equipped with an auto tape selector whitch automatically sets the bias and equalizer level using the detection holes
provided in the cassette shell. The bias and equalizer levels are
automatically set according to the type of cassette as follows. (See
Figure 4)
• Normal tapes
• CrO2 tapes
• Metal tapes

TO PROTECT VALUABLE RECORDINGS
In the record mode, information previously recorded on the tape
will automatically be erased. To prevent this from happening, use
a small screwdriver to break out one or both safety tabs (See Figure
5). It is possible to restore the recording capability of either side of
the cassette by covering the opening with clear adhesive tape (See
Figure 6).
ENHANCED REMOTE CONTROL OPERATIONS
Remark
To use a remote controller, either an infra Red remote control and
receiver or a wired remote control must be connected to the RC 5
Remote IN jack on the back of the unit.
Simultaneous (Parallel) Recording
Check to insure that both wells are in REC PAUSE mode after
pressing the A+B REC button on the front of the unit. The unit will
start recording when a PLAY command from the remote controller
has been received. During the REC mode, the unit can be placed
into a REC PAUSE mode by sending a PAUSE command from the
remote controller and started again by a PLAY command from the
remote controller. Pressing the STOP button on the front of the
unit or sending a STOP command from the remote controller will
cancel this operation.
Normal Speed Dubbing
Check to insure that well B is in REC PAUSE mode after pressing
the NORM DUBB button on the front of the unit. The unit will start
normal speed dubbing when a PLAY command from the remote
controller has been received. Pressing the STOP button on the
front of the unit or sending a STOP command from the remote
controller will cancel this operation
Note: The addition of this feature will allow the use of multiple units
for duplication when connected as follows: Unit 1, well A is
the source and Unit 1, well B as the duplication well #1 (in
other words Normal Speed Dubbing mode.). Additional
units can be connected to act as additional duplication wells
(See “Functions of Connecting Several Units”).
MAINTENANCE
Head Cleaning
If the heads are not cleaned for a long period, dirt or dust may be
deposited on the heads and capstans, causing degraded highfrequency characteristics, volume drop, or degraded recording and
erasure performances.
To prevent this, clean the heads, etc., periodically as follows.
1. Turn the power off.
2. Open the cassette holder by pressing the EJECT button.
Remove the cassette holder door by sliding it upward.
3. As shown in Figure 7, clean the parts which come in contact
with tape, including the heads, capstans, tape guides, pinch
wheels, etc., with a cotton swab soaked in head cleaning
solution.
Head Demagnetization
When a magnetized metallic objects (such as a screwdriver tip,
etc.) comes in contact with a head or capstan, or when the deck has
been used for a long period of time, the head may be magnetized
and noise may be generated. If the head is extremely magnetized,
the high frequencies in recorded tapes could even be erased. To
prevent this, demagnetize the heads and capstans periodically
(every 20 hours of use) using a commercially-available head demagnetizer. (For the operation, please refer to the instruction
manual supplied with your head demagnetizer.)
Caution:
Be sure to turn the power of the cassette deck off before using a
head demagnetizer.
CLEANING OF EQUIPMENT EXTERNAL SURFACES
Functions of Connecting Several Units
The exterior finish of your unit will last indefinitely with proper care
and cleaning. Never use scouring pads, steel wool, scouring
powders or harsh chemical agents (e.g., lye solution), alcohol,
thinners, benzine, insecticide or other volatile substances, as these
will mar the finish of the equipment. Likewise, never use cloths
containing chemical substances. If the equipment gets dirty, wipe
the external surfaces with a soft, lint -free cloth.
Several units an be controlled vie the REMOTE torminaic. Connect
all the units to be controlled by connecting the remote controller
output to the REMOTE IN of the first unit and the REMOTE output
of the first unit to the REMOTE IN of the second unit and so on.
Under this condition it is possible to control all of the units whether
they are set for simultaneous (parallel) recording and/ or normal
speed dubbing modes: assuming that the audio signals are directly
connected to each unit.
If the equipment becomes heavily soiled:
– dilute some liquid soap in water, in a ratio of one part detergent
to six parts water
– dip a soft, lint free cloth in the solution and wring the cloth out
until it is damp
– wipe the equipment with the damp cloth
– dry the equipment by wiping it with a dry cloth.
