The stereo cassette deck which pursued the outstanding basic characteristic.

The DNL system is carried as a noise reduction system, and, in synthesis of 2-3dB, the signal to noise ratio can improve only by using Switch ON at the time of reproduction.
Moreover, a tape hiss noise can be cut effectively.

The tape selector with the position only for a Fe-Cr tape is carried.
The tape selector serves as a 3 steps of independent change system separately changed to three steps in bias and an equalizer, and can use each of an ordinary tape, the tape for Hi-Fi (LH), and a chromium tape by the optimum position.
Moreover, since the position only for a FeCr tape is carried, little distorted sound quality can be enjoyed.

The permalloy head by super-hard permalloy material is adopted as a head.

The drive mechanism by the "DC servo motor" and a "large-sized flywheel" super-life common belt is adopted as the portion of a mechanism.

The quick review / cue system useful for search of a tape are carried.

The full auto stop mechanism is carried and a burden is not applied to a mechanism or a tape.

The reproduction volume which can adjust the level at the time of reproduction is carried.

The terminal for the DIN cords is carried.

+ Carry VU meter which can be displayed to 6dB.

There was an exclusive dust cover as an option.
