CAUTIONS
Prevention of Electric Shocks, Fire Hazards and Damage
Even when the POWER switch is set to STANDBY, a very
small current will flow. To save power and for safety when
not using the unit for an extended period of time, disconnect
the power cord from the household AC outlet.
Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
When unplugging from the wall outlet, always grasp and pull
the plug, not the power cord.
Consult your nearest dealer when damage, disconnection, or
contact failure is found with the cord.
Do not bend the cord sharply, or pull or twist it.
Do not modify the power cord in any manner.
Do not remove screws to disassemble the unit and do not
touch anything inside the unit.
Do not insert any metallic objects into the unit.
Unplug the power cord when there is a possibility of light-
ning.
10) If water gets inside the unit, unplug the power cord from the
outlet and consult your dealer.
11) Do not block the ventilation holes of the unit so that heat can
escape. Do not install the unit in a badly ventilated place.
12) Be sure to unplug the power cord from the outlet when going
out or when the unit is not in use for an extended period of
time.
2. Installation
1) Avoid placing the unit on or adjacent to an amplifier, to pre-
vent hum from being produced by some types of amplifiers.
Move the unit to a place not affected by the amplifier. Keep
the unit as far as possible from a TV set.
2) Avoid installing the unit in a location subject to ambient tem-
peratures exceeding 40 °C (104 °F) (e.g. direct sunlight,
near heaters, etc.) or less than 0 °C (32 °F), excessive
humidity, dust or vibrations.
3) If this set is moved suddenly from a cold place (0 °C) to a
warm place, it may not function properly because of moisture
generated inside the unit. The unit will function properly
30 minutes after being moved.
3. Cleaning the cabinet
Never use benzine or thinner for cabinet cleaning as they may
damage the surface finish.
4. Cassette tape
1) Loose tape may become tangled in the tape transport
mechanism. Remove slack by winding the tape with a pen-
cil.
(Fig. 2)
Fig. 2
Turn the pencil to tighten the tape.
2) The use of C-120 (120 minutes turn around) or thinner tape
is not recommended, since characteristic deterioration may
occur.
3) To prevent recordings from being erased accidentally,
remove the tab(s) with a screwdriver. Reseal the slots with
adhesive tape to erase and re-record after the tabs have
been broken off.

4) Do not store cassette tapes where there is a magnetic field
(e.g. near a TV, etc.) or in a place subject to high tempera-
tures or humidity.
Auto tape select mechanism (decks A and B)
This deck has an Auto Tape Select mechanism which distin-
guishes between different types of tape from holes in the
cassette. After the type of tape has been detected, bias and
equalization are set to be suitable for the tape.
* Cassettes with the detection holes:
Metal tape (EQ: 708) ................e.eeeeeecceccceerenenmes Type 1V
CrO> (chrome) tape (EQ: 70ps) -.................e....... Type II
* Cassettes without the detection holes:
Normal tape (EQ: 120ps) correc eee, Type |
Some earlier types of metal and CrO2 (chrome) tapes may
not be provided with the detection holes. Avoid using such
tapes, since correct equalization characteristics cannot be
obtained. Also do not use ferrichrome tapes whose charac-
teristics do not match this unit.

Operations
Noise may be generated if the power is on or in standby with
the deck set to playback or recording mode. Before turning
the power on or setting to standby, confirm that the IM (stop)
button has been pressed.
Many operations of this unit are performed under the control
of a microcomputer. Use the unit only after carefully studying
the descriptions and cautions in each item. If operations are
done incorrectly, the unit may stop functioning correctly. If
this happens, turn off the power once, and then turn it on
again, so that the unit can function correctly.
SELECTING THE AC SUPPLY VOLTAGE
When this deck is used in an area where the supply voltage is
different from the preset voltage, reset the voltage selector to the
correct position.
Slide the voltage selector to the desired voltage with a screw-
driver.

AUTO REVERSE OPERATION
The auto reverse operation of this unit turns the tape transport
over to the reverse of forward direction automatically when the
tape reaches its end during recording or playback.
* Because of cassette shell construction, a tape recorded in the
forward direction should be played back in the same direction
to obtain stable sound reproduction.
* During recording, auto reverse can be activated only from the
forward to the reverse direction. For good sound quality and to
avoid accidental erasure of previously recorded material,
always start recording with the side A of the tape facing out.
Playback of deck A
Operate in the order of the numbers in the illustration.
O Turn the power on.
O Load a prerecorded cassette with side A facing out.
O Select the side to be played back.
Side A... Forward direction (PLAY >)
Side B... Reverse direction (<< PLAY)
O Set the DOLBY NR switch to the same setting as when the
tape was recorded.
O Select the REVERSE MODE switch as desired.
O Press the PLAY button of deck A to start playback.
* When the deck contains a tape, the deck is turned on auto-
matically and the tape is played back by only pressing the
PLAY button.
Playback of deck B
Perform steps @ to Q of the above procedure for deck B.
Continuous play
First set the REVERSE MODE switch to c=>.
Load cassette tapes in both decks and press the PLAY button of
the deck to be played first for continuous play of both decks.
* At this time, the CONT indicator lights in the multimode display.
When the tape in the deck which plays first reaches the end of
side B (in the reverse direction), it automatically switches to the
forward direction and enters the standby mode. At the same
time, the other deck starts playback. These operations con-
tinue between decks A and B.
* While one deck is playing back, the cassette in the other one
can be replaced. This is convenient for long-time playback of
background music.
Note:
* Use tapes recorded using the same NR mode in decks A and
B.

It may be unlawful to record or playback copyrighted material
without the consent of the copyright owner.
DDRP (Dynamics Detection Recording Processor) record-
ing
DDRP recording is performed with suitable JVC CD players and
the recording level adjustment is performed automatically.
Since recording level adjustment is performed automatically for
different types of tape (normal, CrO2 and metal), the adjustment
of INPUT LEVEL control is not required.
Read the instruction book of your CD player carefully.
RECORDING LEVEL ADJUSTMENT
Adjust the recording level while observing the peak level indica
tor indication.
For example:
With metal tape
—30 20 15
10 8 6 ovu 2 0 2 4
CIA ICI Oro MO arr za
12 6 +8dB
=
В сес SIC OOO OOOO ЕЕ Е Coo Oo ooo 2
Because of metal tape’s higher saturation level, it is OK that “+

With normal or chrome tape
—30 20 15

12 10 8 6 ovu 2 0 2 4
3 ES EII III CI ICI TOC Coeza
L 6 +8dB
В 959 ESE II E III ICA CIS Се COCO COC Cy 2222
It is OK that “+ 0” lights occasionally.
* When the recording level is too low, the hiss noise inherent in
the tape will be conspicuous.
* When the recording level is too high, exceeding the saturation
level, the recording will contain cracking noise and will be dis-
torted.
* If “+ 4” lights too often because the recording level is too high,
the recorded sound may be distorted and seem to be breaking
up. If only “0” lights infrequently, the level is too low and the
recording may contain tape hiss.
It is best to adjust so that the maximum sound level of the
source to be recorded reaches the very limit of the saturation
level of the tape to be used.
The best level varies depending on the type of music and type
of tape so it is better to make a test recording, using FM music,
records, etc.
AUTOMATIC RECORD MUTING (DECK B)
This facility is used to eliminate undesired sections and leave an
appropriate non-recorded section.
To leave non-recorded sections of about 4-5 seconds
automatically
1. When the undesired section comes during recording,
press the @ REC/REC MUTE button and release it.
The REC indicator flashes and a non-recorded section is
made during record muting operation. About 4-5 sec-
onds later, the tape automatically stops, and the unit
enters the record-pause mode.
Press the PLAY button to start recording again.

. To leave non-recorded sections of more than 4-5 sec-
onds
1. Keep the @REC/REC MUTE button pressed continu-
ously as long as you want to make a non-recorded sec-
tion. By releasing the finger from the button after the
above operation, the unit enters the record-pause mode.
2. Press the PLAY button to start recording again.
. To leave non-recorded section of less than 4-seconds
When the undesired section comes during recording....
After the @REC/REC MUTE button is pressed, press the
PLAY button before the unit enters the pause mode to start
recording again, or press the IHPAUSE button to enter the
record-pause mode.
* The peak level indicator lights even during record muting
according to the input level which can be heard from the
speakers or headphones so that recording can be resumed at
the exact point on the tape.
ERASING
When recording on a prerecorded tape, the previous recording
is automatically erased and only the new program is recorded
on the tape.
To erase a tape without making a new recording...
Follow the section “RECORDING” but in step @, set the INPUT
LEVEL control to MIN.
DOLBY NR and DOLBY HX PRO
Dolby NR System
To reduce the hiss inherent in tape recording, use the Dolby NR
System when making recordings. When listening to a tape
recorded with the Dolby NR System, set the DOLBY NR switch
to B or C according to the system selected in the recording
mode.
Note:
The sound quality will change if the positions of the DOLBY NR
switch are different in recording and playback.
Dolby HX PRO headroom extension
When a source which contains many high-frequency compo-
nents is recorded, these high-frequency signals have the same
function as bias and therefore, the effective bias current
changes.
This will result in phenomena such as changes in the level of
low-frequency signal and subsequent distortion and reduction of
the high-frequency saturation level.
Dolby HX PRO headroom extension system controls the bias
current so that the effective bias is constant even when there
are fluctuations in the high-frequency components of the input
signal.
This greatly improves the high-frequency saturation level while
reducing the low-frequency signal level variations and distortion.
* The dynamic sound recorded with this system sounds the
same even when the tape is played back in a deck that does
not have Dolby HX PRO.
* This system automatically works when in recording; however,
Dolby HX PRO is not a noise reduction system.
COMPU LINK CONTROL SYSTEM
The Compu Link Control System controls relative operations
between components automatically and facilitates various
operations.
This is a system originated and developed by JVC for facilitating
various system operations. There are two versions of this sys-
tem; version 1 and 3. (For version 1 components, “COMPU
LINK-1/SYNCHRO” is marked on the rear panel. For version 3
components, “COMPU LINK-3/SYNCHRO” is marked on the
rear panel. This unit belongs to version 3.)
The version 3 system controls relative functions between this
unit and an amplifier or receiver, in addition to all of the functions
of version 1.
Automatic Power On/STANBY Function (COMPU LINK-3)
This function is available when an amplifier or receiver having a
COMPU LINK-3/SYNCHRO terminal is connected. For example,
if a deck contains a tape, the deck is turned on automatically
and the tape is played back by only pressing the PLAY button.
When the amplifier or receiver is switched STANDBY, the source
unit is automatically switched STANDBY.
Automatic Source Selection (COMPU LINK-1, 3)
When the provided remote cables are used for connecting this
unit to other components which have COMPU LINK-1 or
3/SYNCHRO terminals, the switch-over of all system compo-
nents is possible with simple one-touch of the source selector
button of JVC’s amplifier or receiver.
By doing this, the corresponding component will start playing
automatically.
The source select button of the remote control unit or the acti-
vation button of the desired component can be also used for this
purpose. When the components have been switched over, the
previous component will stop playing within five seconds.
Synchronized Recording (COMPU LINK-1, 3)
Synchronized recording refers to the process in which the deck
starts recording in synchronism with the CD player. Perform the
synchronized recording as follows:
1. Set the cassette deck to the record-pause mode in accor-
dance with the recording procedures on page 6.
2. If you want the programmed recording, program the desired
tunes in any order you wish to hear.
3. Press the PLAY/PAUSE button of the CD player. By so
doing, the cassette deck is placed in the record mode and
synchronized with the CD player for recording. Synchronized
recording thus can be made possible.
DDRP (Dynamics Detection Recording Processor) record-
in
The DDRP function makes possible fully automatic recording
when used with a suitable JVC CD player. When the DDRP but-
ton of a suitable JVC CD player is pressed, the recording level
is first adjusted automatically, then recording starts; it is not nec-
essary to start recording by the normal procedure.
Notes:
» Synchronized recording or DDRP recording stops automati-
cally when the CD player stops playing.
* To cancel synchronized recording or DDRP recording, press
the STOP button of the CD player or cassette deck.
* Synchronized recording does not start except when the record-
pause mode is set by simultaneously pressing the
- @ REC/REC MUTE and HNPAUSE buttons in the stop mode.
- The source is locked to the CD position during synchronized
recording or DDRP recording to avoid accidental stops or
switch-over to another component. To switch over the compo-
nents, cancel synchronized recording or DDRP recording first.
- The INPUT LEVEL control does not function during DDRP
recording.

back mode during dubbing, deck B enters the record mute
operation automatically and then enters the record-pause
mode.
* Before pressing the SYNCHRO DUBBING button
Confirm that deck B is in the stop mode before starting dub-
bing.
Dubbing and DOLBY NR switch
During dubbing, the same NR mode selected for the playback
cassette is applied to the recording cassette, regardless of the
position of the NR switch.
Input level
Recording is performed at the same level as the playback tape
during dubbing regardless of the position of the INPUT LEVEL
control.
Tape editing
1. Press the @ REC/REC MUTE button when finished dubbing

Notes at dubbing
1. Normal-speed dubbing is recommended to obtain good
sound quality.
Television receivers placed close to the deck may cause
interference on the recorded signal when the deck is used in
the high-speed dubbing mode. If this happens, either turn off
the television receiver or use the normal-speed dubbing
mode.

MAINTENANCE
The importance of cleaning
When the tape is moving, magnetic powder and dust naturally
accumulate on the heads, capstan and pinch roller. When they
become too dirty.
* tone quality deteriorates.
* the output sound level drops.
* the previous sound is not erased satisfactorily.
* recordings are not satisfactory.
Because of this, clean the heads, etc. every 10 hours of use so
that optimum recordings will be made.

Wipe the heads, the capstan, etc. with a cotton swab with its tip
dipped in alcohol. For effective cleaning, use a cleaning kit avail-
able from your audio store. After cleaning, be sure that the
cleaning fluid has completely dried before loading a cassette.
Demagnetizing the heads
Magnetic objects brought close to the head or using the deck for
a long period of time, results in magnetization of the head, thus
noise occurs. When the noise is excessive, high frequencies on
the recorded tape may be erased.
Demagnetize the heads and other metal parts that come into
contact with the tape every 20-30 hours of use with a head
demagnetizer (available from your audio store).

TROUBLESHOOTING
What appears to be trouble is not always real trouble. Make
sure first....
1. Cassette cannot be loaded.
* Is the cassette positioned correctly?
When PLAY button is pressed, tape does not move.
* Is the tape too loosely wound?
Tape runs, but no sound is heard.
* Are all connections properly and securely made?
* ls the MONITOR switch of the stereo amplifier set to the
TAPE position?
* |s the VOLUME control of the stereo amplifier set to MIN?
Sound quality is poor.
* ls the DOLBY NR switch set to the right position?
* Is the head section dirty?
* ls the record/playback head magnetized?
* |s the tape worn out?
Recording cannot be performed.
* Are the safety tabs of cassette tape broken?
* Are all connections properly and securely made?
* |s the head section dirty?
Previous recording is not completely erased.
* |s the erase head dirty?
Since tape speed is irregular, wow and flutter occur.
* ls the pinch roller or capstan dirty?
* ls the tape rewound too tight?
