B Handling Precautions
C-120 Cassettes
Ш Storage Precautions
C-120 cassette tapes are not recommended as they use a very thin tape
base which may become tangled around the capstan or pinch roller.
Tape Slack
Before putting a tape into the deck, take up any slack with a pencil or
your finger tip. This precaution prevents the tape from becoming
entangled around the capstan or pinch roller.
Do not store cassette tapes in a place where they will be subject to:
e Extremely high temperature or excessive moisture
e Excessive dust
e Direct sunlight
e Magnetic fields (near TV sets or speakers)
To eliminate tape slack, store your cassettes in cassette cases with hub
stops
Accidental Erasure Prevention
All cassettes have erasure prevention tabs for each side. To protect
valuable recordings from accidental or inadvertent erasure, remove the
tab for the appropriate side with a screwdriver or another tool.
To record on a tape whose erasure prevention tabs have been
removed, cover the tab holes with adhesive tape.

Notes on Music Search Operation:
The search functions operates by detecting comparatively long, blank
sections approximately 4 to 5 seconds long, in between recorded
selections. Therefore, the system may not operate normally in the
following cases:
Recordings with discontinuous speech or conversation.
Recordings with long periods of pianissimo (softly played music).
Recordings with long silences.
Blank sections with a high level of noise.
Blank sections shorter than 4 seconds.
If noise-emitting appliances, such as electric razors, drills, refrigerators,
etc., are operated nearby.
REV close to the beginning of the program or CUE close to the ending.

Ш PROPER RECORDING LEVEL
A too high recording level can saturate the tape and cause distortion.
On the other hand, if the recording level is set too low, soft passages
will be marked by residual noise. A proper recording level is the single
most important factor for making well balanced recordings.
Guideline for maximum recording level
TYPE | (Normal) 0 dB level on peaks
TYPE Il {CrO,) +1 dB level on peaks
TYPE IV (Meta!) t3 dB level on peaks
Note: The optimum recording level differs depending on the program
source and the type of tape used.
Ш RECORDING BIAS ADJUSTMENT
For best recording results, monitoring during recording and comparing
different recordings using your own judgement are essential.
The DENON cassette deck is equipped with a BIAS FINE control to
assist you in setting the proper bias for different types and brands of
tape. At the center stop-click position, the deck is set to the reference
bias level for Normal, CrO, and Metal tape. If the resulting recording in
this position has too much or too little high frequency content,
adjusting the BIAS FINE control can be useful to achieve better results,
BIAS FINE
ENGLISH
If the high frequencies (treble sounds) are to be boosted, turn the BIAS
FINE control counter-clockwise to decrease the bias current. Turn the
control clockwise to increase bias current.
By the use of this control, you can record tapes with a frequency
response that will perfectly match your listening taste.

BB 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 significant improvements over Dolby B
NR.
Tape background noise consists primarily of high frequency informa-
tion, which is particularly annoying during soft passages. The Dolby NR
system increases the level of low volume mid- and high-frequency
signals 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, 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 reduc-
tion 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 Righ-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, CrO, and Metal tape.
The Dolby HX-PRO headroom extension system functions during recording
to raise the saturation level in the treble range. Therefore, most of the
treble range components distorted or lost during recording on convention-
al cassette decks are more faithfully recorded on the new DENON cassette
deck.
MAINTENANCE
ENGLISH
Features of the Dolby HX-PRO Headroom Extension System
(1) Performance of Normal and CrO, tapes can be improved to very close
of that offered by Metal tape.
(2) The dynamics in the treble range are improved significantly.
(3) Since no decoding is necessary during playback, the improved sound
can be enjoyed on any type of tape deck, including portable players
and car audio systems.
(4) The system functions whether the Dolby B/C NR system is engaged
or not.
IB Head Cleaning
After long usage, tape coating or dust may adhere to the heads, causing
deterioration of sound. Therefore, the parts depicted in the iliustration
should be cleaned regularly. Use a cotton swab moistened with a tape
head cleaning solution {such as alcohol).
Note:
1. Some cleaning cassettes on the market have strong abrasive effects
and may scratch the heads. Always use cotton swabs instead of
cleaning cassettes.
2. Since the use of metal tape is apt to collect more dust on the heads, the
heads should be cleaned more often to enjoy the best possible sound.
Ta
—" te ym pn | fa fa
Ш Cleaning the Pinch Rollers and Capstans
if the pinch rollers or capstans accumulate dust, lape transport may
become unstable, as a result from slippage, during recording or
playback. The tape can also be damaged if it gets entangled in the
capstan.
Clean these parts with a cotton swab or a soft cloth moistened with a
tape head cleaning solution {such as alcohol).
HB Demagnetizing the Heads
The heads will become magnetized after tong usage or if strongly
magnetized objects are brought near them. The result is a generation of
noise, loss of the high frequency range, and in extreme cases erasure of
treble components on pre-recorded tapes in combination with added
noise.
Thus, the heads should be demagnetized at regular intervals. {Head
demagnetizers are separately available from your dealer.)
Æ How to Demagnetize the Tape Heads
1. Turn off the power.
2. Turn on the demagnetizer while it is at least 30 cm away from the
heads. Bring the demagnetizer near the heads and slowly move itn
small circles four or five times in front of each head, making sure
vou do not touch them.
3. Siowly move the demagnetizer away and turn it off when it is at
least 30 cm away from the heads.
