About the technology of cassette decks
Stereo double cassette deck with
2 one-engine drives.
Recording on deck 2 only, deck 1 can just play back.
Has Dolby® B and C noise reduction and HX PRO.
Connection is via cinch cables; headphone jack without volume control.
Separate (!) level controls L/R (a bit clumsy).
Features auto-reverse and can record on Type IV (metal) tapes.
The equalization is set according to the indexing holes (see bottom of page).
Unfortunately no external bias control (at least you needn't care about it).
Level meter can be switched from -20...+6dB to -3...+8dB in 1dB steps.
Supports high speed dubbing (dubbing with twice the normal speed).
Rewinding time for a C-60 cassette: about 105 s
|Bias frequency||80 kHz|
|Tape speed||4,76 cm/s (1-7/8 in/s) or 9,53 cm/s ( 3-3/4 in/s) during high speed dubbing|
|Wow and flutter||0,07% (WRMS) or 0,2% (DIN)|
|Frequency response (DIN)
For an explanation of the formulas, see next chart.
|Input sensitivity / impedance||60mV at 47kOhms|
|Output voltage / impedance||
|Type of cassette||Number of indexing holes||Position on cassette|
|Ferric oxide (Fe2O3)||none, only write protection||none|
|Chromium dioxide (CrO2)||2||next to write protection|
|Metal (Fe)||4||2 next to write prot. + 2 in the middle (see fig.1)|
