CASSETTE TAPES
• Handling Precautions
• C-120 Cassettes
•
C-120 cassette tapes are not recommended as they use a very thin tape
base which may become tangled around the capstan or pinchroller.
Tape Slack
This cassette deck incorporates an automatic tape slackness preventive
mechanism, but it can not prevent such a slackness as shown below.
Remove it with a pencil or the like prior to use.
• Storage Precautions
Do not store cassette tapes in a place where they will be subject to:
• Extremely high temperature or excessive moisture
• Excessive dust
• Direct sunlight
• Magnetic fields (near TV sets or speakers)
To eliminate tape slack, store your cassettes in cassette cases with hub stops
• Accidental Erasure Prevention
Every cassette has erasure prevention tabs for each side. To protect your valuable
recorded tapes from accidental or inadvertent erasure, remove the tab for the
appropriate side with a screwdriver or other tools.
To record on a tape with the erasure prevention tabs removed, cover the tab holes
with plastic tape.
AUTO TAPE SELECT FEATURE
This Stereo Cassette Deck contains an Auto Tape Select feature which automatically selects
the optimum bias and equalization for the tape in use. This is accomplished by detection of
tape type detection holes in the cassette housing.
•
If a tape without tape type detection holes is used, the deck will
automatically adjust itself for normal tapes.

When recording is finished, press the STOP button.
Caution:
Be careful not to erase important recordings by mistake. Mis-erasing can be avoided by following the two steps below:
1.
If the PLAY button is pressed while the REC indicator is on, the tape will be recorded.
2.
If the PLAY and RECORD button are pressed at the same time, the tape will be recorded.
3.
Performing the record pause or the stop operation during recording will create a discontinuous portion in the recording signal. The previously recorded signal may remain after
erasure at this connecting portion. Also, a very small amount of the end portion of the previous song may be erased.
PROPER RECORDING LEVEL
A too high recording level can saturate the tape and cause distortion. On the other hand, if the recording levels are set too low, soft passages will be marked by residual noise. Proper recording
level is the single most important factor for making well balanced recordings.

RECORDING BIAS ADJUSTMENT
For best recording results, monitoring during the recording process and comparing various
recordings using your own judgment are essential. The cassette. deck is equipped with
independent bias adjustment controls for the left and right channels to assist you in setting
the proper bias for different types and brands of recording tapes. At the center-click-stop
position, the deck is set for a reference bias level for NORMAL, Cr02 and METAL tapes. If the
resulting recording in this position has too much or too little high frequency content, varying
the bias adjustment control can be useful to achieve better results.
If the high frequencies (treble sounds) are to be boosted, turn the bias control
counterclockwise to decreases bias current. If distortion is of more concern than high
frequency response, turn the control clockwise to increase bias current. By the use of this
control, you can record tapes with response that matches your personal listening tastes.
RECORDING ADJUSTING
The recording and bias levels can be fine-adjusted for the tape being used. For details, refer to the
enclosed adjustment sheet.

NOTE: Note about MUSIC SEARCH action:
MUSIC SEARCH is a function which operates by detecting a comparatively long non-recorded
part on the tape. Therefore, MUSIC SEARCH may not operate normally in the following
cases.
•
Sound on the tape is interrupted by speech or conversation.
•
•
•
•
Long periods of pianissimo (Softly played music) or non-recorded intervals occur on the
tape.
The tape has picked up noise in a non-recorded interval.
Non-recorded intervals on the tape are less than 4 seconds in length.
Noise-emitting electrical appliances are in operation nearby, i.e.; Electric razors, drills,
refrigerators, etc.
1) Operation of the Real Time Tape Counter and the Linear Tape Counter
•
Real Time Tape Counter
The time of the tape traveling at a constant speed is indicated in "M" (minutes) and "S"
2) Operation of MEMORY STOP
(1) During recording or playback operations, MEMORY STOP can be used to locate a
particular point on the tape. At the desired point, reset the counter to " WMOOs".
With the MEMORY STOP button in the "ON" position, the deck will stop at the
"0000" point (actually "-0002" and "0000") during REWIND operations.
(2) The MEMORY indication will light when this function is activated. (3) Notes:
(seconds).
A microcomputer measures and displays the time with high precision.
Display example: 32m10s 32 minutes, 10 seconds.
•
Linear Tape Counter
The tape travel time is indicated with a 4-digit value. The first two digits indicate the
minutes, the last two digits the seconds.
Display example: 3456 34 minutes, 56 seconds.
(1) Press the RESET button to reset the counter to: OOM OOs
"M" and "S" are not displayed when "VARIABLE" is displayed. They are also not
displayed when "FIX" is displayed during the fast-forward, rewind, music search
operations or when the STOP button has been pressed during an operation.
•
•
When the power is turned "OFF", this function is automatically deactivated.
The MEMORY STOP is accurate to -5 on the counter, and will stop between "-0002"
and "0000".
•
The MEMORY STOP is released by pressing the EJECT button.
3) Display Back-up
(1) The DOLBY NR, MPX FILTER, COUNTER VALUE, TAPE SPEED and TAPE SIZE
functions are protected for approximately one month by a memory back-up.
Once the back-up period is up, the DOLBY NR and MPX FILTER settings are set to
off, the TAPE SIZE setting is reset to "C-90", the Tape Speed setting is set to FIX,
and the counter is reset to "0000".
(2) Select "FIX" using the TAPE SPEED button. "FIX" appears on the display, the counter is
set to the real time mode, and "M" (minutes) and "S" (seconds) appear.
The counter remains in the real time mode when the play, record play, pause, record
pause or stop mode is selected at this time.
(3) The counter automatically switches to the linear mode if the fast forward or rewind
mode is set from any of the modes in (2) in 1 or if the "VARIABLE" mode is set during
playback.
(4) If the music search mode is selected, the counter automatically switches to the linear
mode, then switches back to the real time mode once playback begins after the
musicsearch operation.
* Note
The method of measuring the time and the precision differ for the real time tape
counter (fixed speed travel) and the linear tape counter. The tape may not be
returned to the precise position when the fast-forward, rewind, music search or
memory rewind operations are used, but this is not a malfunction.
Use the real time tape counter to measure the accumulated time at constant speed
without counting the time in which the pause, stop and record pause modes are set.
(5)
The counter is reset to "0000" when the EJECT button is pressed.
DOLBY B & C NOISE REDUCTION SYSTEM
•
•
•
The Dolby noise reduction system substantially reduces the tape background noise (hiss)
inherent in the cassette medium. Dolby B NR is most widely in use. However Dolby C NR is a
much more recent development and represents significantly improvements over Dolby B NR.
Tape background noise consists primarily of high frequency information, which is particularly
annoying during soft passages. The Dolby NR system increases the level of low volume mid
and high frequency signal during recording and reduces the level of these signals by an
identical amount during playback. As a result, the playback signal is identical to the original
source signal, but the level of background noise generated by the tape is greatly reduced.
The operating principle of Dolby C NR is similar to that of Dolby B NR except for the
encoding /decoding response curves. The noise reduction effect obtained with Dolby
C NR is up to 20 dB, compared to 10 dB with Dolby B NR. In addition, Dolby C NR
uses an anti-saturation network and spectral skewing circuitry for a significant
improvement in the dynamic range of the mid- to high-frequencies.
DOLBY HX-PRO HEADROOM EXTENSION SYSTEM
This deck is equipped with the Dolby HX-PRO headroom extension system. Since the system
functions automatically during recording, no switching operation or adjustment is required.
The system is effective with any type of Normal, Cr02 and Metal tape.
The Dolby HX-PRO headroom extension system functions during recording to lift up the
saturation level in the treble range. Therefore, most of the treble range components
distorted or lost during recording on conventional cassette decks are more faithfully recorded
on the new cassette deck.
Features of the Dolby HX-PRO Headroom Extension System
(1)
(2)
(3)
Performance of Normal and Cr02 tapes can be upgraded closer to that of Metal tapes.
The dynamic range in the treble is improved significantly.
Since no decoding in playback is necessary, the improvement can be obviously heard
(4)
on any hi-fi playback system including portable components and car systems.
The system functions whether the Dolby B/C NR is engaged or not.

MAINTENANCE
• Removing the cassette compartment cover
It will be more convenient if the cassette compartment cover is
removed during the cleaning of the pinchroller and heads, or during
•
Cleaning the Pinchroller and the Capstan
If the pinchroller or the capstan accumulate dust, tape transport may become
unstable resulting from slippage during recording or playback. The tape can also be
damaged by being rolled up around the capstan. Clean them with a cotton swab or
soft cloth moistened with cleaning solution (such as alcohol).
demagnetizing of heads.
Follow these procedures:
1. Press the EJECT button to open the cassette compartment.
2.
Hold only the cover of the cassette compartment and pull it up. The compartment
cover is removed from the front.
When attaching the cassette compartment cover, reverse the above procedure.
•
Demagnetizing the Heads
The heads may become magnetized after long usage or by having a strongly
magnetized object brought neat them. The result is a generation of noise, loss of the
high frequency range, or erasing the treble components of pre-recorded tapes and
adding noise.
Demagnetize the heads on a regular basis.
•
Head Cleaning
After long usage, tape coating or dust may adhere to the heads, causing deterioration
of sound. Clean them regularly. Use a cotton swab moistened with cleaning solution
(such as alcohol).
Note:
1. Some cleaning cassettes on the market have a strong abrasive effect
and scratch the
heads. Use cotton swab instead of cleaning cassettes.
2. Since the use of metal tapes is apt to collect more dust on the heads, clean the heads
more often to enjoy optimum sound.
12
• Procedure
1. Be sure to turn "off" the power supply.
2. Turn the demagnetizer "on" while it is more than 30cm away from the heads. Bring
the demagnetizer near the heads and slowly move it in a small circle four or five
times.
3. Slowly move the demagnetizer away from the heads and turn "off" the power of the
demagnetizer when it is about 30cm away from the heads.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Make sure of the followings before you consider as any malfunctions:
1. Are all the connections correct?
