INSTALLATION
When installing the deck, avoid locations with high
temperatures or humidity, and make sure that the
deck receives adequate ventilation.
E Do not install the deck in locations subject to direct sunlight, or near a
space heater or other heating device, as this may cause damage to
the finish or the internal parts.
ME Malfunctions may also result if the deck is installed in an excessively
humid or dusty location. Avoid installing the deck next to kitchen
counters or other locations subject to oily smoke or humidity.
Ш If the deck is placed directly on top of an amplifier, it may pick up
humming or other noise. Also, if the amplifier generates a large
amount of heat, the deck may malfunction.
Ш If the deck is located near a television set, it may pick up interference
noise, which will be recorded as a whistling sound on the tape. In
such cases, move the deck further away from the television set or
turn the television set off when operating the deck.
Æ Do not place a cloth over the deck, or block the ventilation slots in
any other way. The ventilation slots on this deck are necessary to
keep internal parts cool. If they are blocked, the deck may
malfunction.
CONDENSATION (DEW)
When the deck is moved from a cold location to a warm location, or
when the temperature of the room changes suddenly, condensation (a
phenomenon in which moisture forms on the surface of the mechanical
parts) may occur. This can adversely affect the performance of the deck.
In such cases, wait for about one hour to allow the deck to adjust to the
room temperature. To prevent condensation when heating a room, raise
the temperature slowly.
POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not puli out the plug by tugging
the cord and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet as
this could cause a short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit,
a piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never
make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords
should be routed such that they are not likely to be stepped on. A
damaged power cord can cause fire or give you an electrical shock.
Check the power cord once in a while. When you find it damaged, ask
your nearest PIONEER authorized service center or your dealer for a
replacement.

Pinch roller
CLEANING THE HEADS, PINCH ROLLERS AND
CAPSTANS
The heads, pinch rollers and capstans are likely to get dirty quite easily. If
these parts; particularly the heads; get dirty, the high frequency compo-
nents of a recording will not be reproduced and the stereo balance will be
impaired, resulting in a deterioration of the playback sound. It is therefore
recommended that the head section be cleaned regularly.
1. Set the POWER switch to STANDBY.
Press the EJECT button to open the cassette door.
Dip a cleaning swab in cleaning fluid and use it to wipe the heads,
capstans and pinch rollers.
NOTE:
After cleaning the head section, do not load a tape until the cleaning fluid
has dried completely (about 2 or 3 minutes).
DEMAGNETIZING THE HEADS
After using the cassette deck for a period of time, the heads will become
magnetized. The same effect will occur if a magnetized screwdriver,
magnet, or other magnetized object is brought too close to the heads.
When the heads become magnetized, high frequency sounds will be lost
during recording or playback, and interference noise may also occur. The
heads should be regularly demagnetized with a head demagnetizer,
which can be purchased at most audio stores.
When demagnetizing the heads, make sure that the POWER switch of
the cassette deck is set to STANDBY. For detailed instructions, refer to
the operating instructions of the head demagnetizer.
CLEANING THE FRONT PANEL
Clean the deck regularly with a soft cloth. If the front panel gets dirty or
greasy, clean it with a damp cloth and mild soap, then wipe it dry with a
soft cloth. Never use volatile cleaners like thinners, benzine or alcohol be-
cause they will damage the panel finish.

CHECK CASSETTE BEFORE USE
Check the following items before loading a cassette tape:
Is the tape loose, or is some of the tape
outside the cassette?
If some of the tape is loose or projecting outside the cassette shell, the
tape may not properly enter between the capstan and pinch roller. This
will prevent the tape from being supplied properly, and may even
damage the tape itself. In such cases, insert a pencil into the reel hole and
take up the slack (Fig. A).
Some cassette tapes come with a plastic or thick paper stopper to pre-
vent the tape from becoming slack. Remove this stopper when loading
the cassette and replace it after using the cassette.
Are the accidental erasure prevention tabs
intact?
These tabs allow you to prevent important recordings from being erased
accidentally. When the tab on the cassette shell is removed (Fig. B), it is
not possible to activate the recording function, so valuable recordings
will not be erased by mistake. |
To re-record on a cassette whose tab has been removed, simply stick a
piece of doubled adhesive tape over the hole (Fig. C).
When using TYPE IV (metal) or TYPE II (CrO:) tapes, be careful
not to block the sensor holes with the tape (Fig. D, Fig. E). If the
holes are blocked, the automatic tape selector mechanism will not
operate correctly.
NOTES:
* The accidental erasure tab for each side is the one located on
the top left when the side that you want to protect is facing you.
* When breaking off the tab, do not use a magnetized screwdriver.
AUTOMATIC TAPE SELECTOR FUNCTION
This cassette deck is equipped with an automatic tape selector function
which utilizes the sensor holes on the tape cassette to determine the
type of tape being used.
The deck is then set to match the tape recording bias and equalization.
NOTES:
® When using TYPE IV (metal) tapes, make sure that the tapes have
sensor holes.
e Make sure that the sensor holes on the cassette are not blocked;
otherewise the tape selector mechanism will not function properly.
e Do not use TYPE III (FeCr) tapes.
TIPS ON CASSETTE TAPES
e Leader tape (which cannot be recorded on) is provided at the begin-
ning of a cassette tape. Let the tape run for about 5 seconds before
starting to record, to allow the leader tape to clear the recording head.
e Do not leave a cassette tape exposed to the environment. Store the
cassette in its case after use so that dust and dirt do not adhere to
the tape, and so the tape will not get slack. Store tapes in a location
free from magnetism, dust, dirt, oil, heat and humidity.
e Because C-120 tapes are very thin, they can easily jam in the pinch
rollers and capstan, and they often are subject to other problems
such as irregular winding. It is best not to use them with this deck.
e If cassette tapes are irregularly wound, the tape may get jammed in
the rollers. This can cause damage to both the tape and the deck
itself. If you are not certain whether the tape is wound evenly, fast for-
ward or rewind the tape from beginning to end, to make sure that the
tape is properly wound.

allowing many tapes to be played back continuously. This is a conve-
nient feature for parties, background music, etc.
e When this mode is selected, if the deck encounters an unrecorded
portion of tape more than 15 seconds in length, it will fast forward
the tape until it encounters another recorded portion, and resurne play-
back from that point

NOTE:
During relay playback, when a tape begins playing automatically, it
always starts from the forward (t>) playback side. Make sure that the
tapes are rewound properly before beginning relay playback.
MUSIC SEARCH
(Skipping forward or backward to play back a desired selection)
The music search function detects blanks (longer than 4 seconds) be-
tween selections, advances the tape in the forward or reverse direction
to find the beginning of the desired selection, and automatically starts
playback.
It can find a selection located up to 15 selections before or after the
current position.
During Forward Playback
When you wish to locate the next selection or a later one, press the fast
forward (PP) button as many times as the number of selections to be
skipped. When you wish to listen to the current selection from the begin-
ning, press the fast reverse (44) button once. To return to the previous
selection or an ealier one, press the fast reverse (<<) button as many
times as the number of selections to be skipped, plus one.
During Reverse Playback
When you wish to locate the next selection or a later one, press the fast
reverse (dd) button as many times as the number of selections to be
skipped. When you wish to listen to the current selection from the begin-
ning, press the fast forward (PB) button once. To return to the previous
selection or an ealier one, press the fast forward (PP) button as many
times as the number of selections to be skipped, plus one.
From the Stop Mode
Press the playback (> or €) button to select the tape transport direction,
then press the fast forward or fast reverse (PP or <<) button to per-
form music search as described above.
@ If the button is pressed more times than the number of selections on
the side, music search can continue on the other side; but ONLY if
the auto reverse function operates.
NOTES:
In the following cases, the music search function may be unable to prop-
erly detect blanks between selections, thus operating incorrectly. This is
not, however, a sign of unit malfunction.
e When using a tape with blanks between selections less than 4
seconds long.
e When listening to tapes with long low-level intervals, like classical
music tapes, or tapes with sound breaks several seconds long within
selections.
® When listening to tapes of recorded conferences or talk shows,
where the sound is discontinuous.
e When using tapes with noise in the blanks between selections.
How Selections are Counted
When the music search function is performed in the middle of a selection
and “1st previous selection” is specified (the button is pressed once),
the deck will return to the beginning of the present selection. To return to
earlier selections, count the number of selections to be skipped, plus one.

RECORDING (Deck Il only)
1. Loada tape for recording in Deck Il.
Set the DOLBY NR switch.
3. Setthe REV MODE switch.
® To record on one side only, set the switch to the == position.
To record on both sides, set the switch to either the => or the
co position.
Press the recording ( e ) button.
5. Prepare the audio source from which you wish to
record. Turn on the stereo amplifier and prepare it
for playback of the desired audio source.
6. Adjust the recording level. For details, see
“ADJUSTING THE RECORDING LEVEL" below.
7. Press the playback (p> or €) button or the pause
( 11) button to begin recording.
e When recording on both sides, press the P button. If the «<
N
>
button is pressed, recording will stop after only one side is
recorded. The deck cannot switch from the reverse direction to
the forward direction during recording.
To Stop Recording Temporarily
Press the pause ( =» ) button.
e To resume recording, either press the pause ( ## ) button again, or
press the playback (> or €) button.
To Stop Recording
Press the stop (II) button.
ADJUSTING THE RECORDING LEVEL
The adjustment of the recording level is the most important factor
in achieving good recording results. A high level provides a good
signal-to-noise ratio and dynamic range, but an excessively high
level distorts the sound. If the level is set too low for fear of sound
distortion, irritating tape hiss will mar the recording. The charac-
teristics of tapes differ depending on the manufacturer and the type
of tape. Set the REC LEVEL control so that the level meter's “0
dB” indicator remains lit most of the time. No harm will be done
if the “+3 dB” indicator lights momentarily at peaks. When record-
ing without Dolby NR, set the REC LEVEL control so that the — 3
dB’ indicator lights, and the “O dB” indicator lights occasionally
at peaks.
NOTES:
e The optimal recording level may differ somewhat, depending on the
audio source and type of tape used. In order to obtain the best possible
results, set the recording level after actual testing. Listen to your
recordings, and adjust the level as necessary.
e The level meter may react differently during recording and playback of
the same tape. This is due to differences in tape sensitivity, and cre-
ates no problem.

RECORDING MUTE
Use this function to create the 4.5-second blanks needed for proper op-
eration of the music search function.
e Press the recording mute ( O ) button during recording and the deck
will create a blank space by recording a section which contains no
signal for approximately 4.5 seconds. The deck will then enter record-
ing standby mode.
e To create a blank which is more than 4.5 seconds long, hold the
button down for the desired length of time. When the button is re-
leased, the deck will enter recording standby mode.
e To resume recording, press the standby ( ts ) button or the playback
(> or €) button.

the television.
e The tape in Deck II will be recorded with the same Dolby NR charac-
teristics as the tape in Deck |, regardless of the setting of the DOLBY
NR switch. For example, if the original tape was recorded with Dolby
C-type NR, the copy will also have Dolby C-type NR.
e During high speed copying, none of the operation buttons will function
except for the stop ( Ml) button.
© During normal speed copying, the recording mute ( O } and pause
( 88 ] buttons of Deck Il also function.
e Tape copying stops when either of the two tapes reach the end.
Therefore it is advisable to use tapes of the same length.
® The sound quality of the copied tape will be somewhat less than that
of the original. Therefore when making more than one copy, always

6. Adjust the recording level.
e See page 10.
7. Press the stop (MM) buttons of both the cassette
deck and the CD player.
® Unless both this deck and the CD player are in stop mode,
synchro recording cannot be performed.
8. Press the CD SYNCHRO button.
e The cassette deck begins recording, and the CD player begins
playback.
When the compact disc finishes playing:
The CD player enters stop mode and the cassette deck enters recording
standby mode. Change the disc and press the play button of the CD
player tó resume recording. If the CD player does not resume play within
1 minute, the cassette deck enters stop mode.
When the CD player changes discs (twin tray
or multi-play disc CD players):
The cassette deck enters recording standby mode, and resumes record-
ing when the CD player begins playing the next disc. A 4.5 second blank
space is automatically created between selections.
If the end of the tape is reached while the CD
player is still playing:
The CD player returns to the beginning of the currently-playing selection
and then enters pause mode. To resume recording, load another tape
and check the tape running indicator to ensure that the tape is moving in
the desired direction. if not, press the playback (» or <) button to
change the tape direction, then immediately press the stop (IN) button.
The tape running indicator will change direction. Synchro recording can
be resumed by pressing the CD SYNCHRO button again. (The CD
SYNCHRO button should be pressed within 1 minute. If more than 1
minute elapses, the CD player will enter stop mode.)
If the auto-reverse function operates while the
CD is still playing:
The CD player returns to the beginning of the current selection and
enters pause mode.
A 4.5 second blank space is automatically created on the reverse side,
then the CD player resumes playback and the deck resumes recording.
NOTES:
e Even when the CD player is connected to the amplifier with an optical
fiber cable, connect the CD player to either the amplifier or this deck
with pin plug input and output cords.
e Be sure to connect the deck and the CD player with the CD-DECK
SYNCHRO control cord.
e Although recording begins when the CD SYNCHRO button is pressed,
the CD player does not start playback until the button is released.
This function can be used to advance the tape past the leader section,
or to create a blank section on the tape.
e Only PIONEER CD players equipped with a CD -S YNCHRO control jack
can be used for CD -DECK S YNCHRO recording. Any type of CD player
which meets these requirements, including twin-tray or multi-play
models, can be used.
E Dolby NR Systems
Dolby NR systems are designed to reduce the amount of tape hiss,
mainly in the treble components. During recording, the high-pitched pia-
nissimo sounds which are most characteristic of audible noise are boost-
ed, and during playback, only these boosted sections are attenuated, so
that the sound is returned to normal. As a result, the noise is attenuated
by an amount equal to the boosting in the treble range. The Dolby B-type
NR system reduces noise in the treble range, cutting tape hiss and ex-
panding the dynamic range. The Dolby C-type NR system is even more
effective in reducing noise, as it reduces noise from the mid-range on.
NOTE:
When a tape has been recorded using the Dolby B-type or C-type NR
system, make sure that the DOLBY NR switch is set to the same position
during playback.
B Dolby HX PRO Headroom Extension System
The Dolby HX PRO system controls the bias current during recording and
maintains it at the optimal level based on the amount of high frequency
components in the music signal. It therefore provides excellent recording
quality even when recording signals from digital sources, which contain a
large amount of high-frequency components, are recorded. To guarantee
optimal results, the Dolby HX PRO system is activated automatically
when recording begins, regardless of the setting of the Dolby NR System
switch. Furthermore, since this system controls the quality of the record-
ing itself, the clarity of the sound will be maintained even when the tapes
are played back on another tape deck which does not contain the HX
PRO Headroom Extension System. |

Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you've just
purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s
time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement
your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic
Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you
to ger the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe
level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear
without annoying blaring or distortion—and, most importantly,
without affecting your sensitive hearing;
Sound can be deceiving, Over time your hearing “comfort
level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds
- “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level
BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
e Start your volume control at a low setting,
® Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably
and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
© Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing
damage or loss in the future. After ali, we want you listening for
a lifetime.
We Want You Listening For À Lifetime
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a
lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud
noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer
and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics
Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive
noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.
Decible
Level Example
30 Quiet library, soft whispers
40 Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic
50 Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office
60 Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine
70 Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant
80 Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock
at two feet.
THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE DANGEROUS
UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE
90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower
100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill
120 Rock band concert in front of speakers, thunderclap
