A New High Performance Cassette Deck in Modest Price Bracket to Cope with
the Advent of Metal Particle Tape!!
Use of Metal Particle Tape
A total revolution is being brought about in
magnetic tapes with the advent of metal particle
tapes which provide unprecedented high
recording level exceeding 4dB as compared
with existing CrO2 tapes. Now, true high
fidelity reproduction is possible with extended
dynamic range and superb S/N ratio. To handle
this epoch-making tape, exclusive positions
are provided for corresponding bias and
equalization, and a bias fine-tune adjustment
is effective in obtaining the optimum bias
for this new type of tape.
High Quality Sendust Heads
Excellent frequency response and wear
characteristics are ensured through the use of
a pure Sendust alloy record/playback head
capable of handling even the latest fine
metal tape. Also, we use an exclusive large
erase head of Sendust alloy for perfect
erasure of metal particle tape.
Rugged Tape Transport System
A highly dependable mechanical system
ensures stable tape transport, and a high
quality bridge motor drives the reel and
capstan smoothly. All the control knobs and
buttons are logically placed for the easiest
and most convenient operation.
Other Features
Dolby* noise reduction system is incorporated
to remove unpleasant tape hiss without
impairing recording signals, and the Rec.
mute position is useful in cutting off
unwanted signals such as FM commercials, etc.
from your precious recordings. The memory-
rewind system is convenient when you want
to start playback at a desired portion or when
playback is to be repeated. An automatic
stop system is employed for all modes to
remove tension applied to tape at the end of
operation. Easy-to-read peak meters make it
possible to set up an appropriate recording
level even for metal particle tape. The recording
input selector is effective in improving S/N
ratio when line input is used for recording.
Bias fine control makes it possible to obtain
the optimum bias amount for the cassette tape
you use.
