Description
 
It is a tape deck in which auto-reverse is possible.

By sticking sensing foil on a tape end, the auto-reverse performance of right-and-left both directions is possible.

Since it corresponds also to a low-noise tape, the tape selection switch is adopted and the recording of the conventional tape and a low-noise tape is possible by good sound quality with a change.

After operation of a pinch roller has adopted the electromagnetism solenoid system and a tape performance finishes, it is the structure which an auto stopper commits, and a pinch roll also separates at the same time a motor power source is shut off.
Moreover, only by pushing the Play button, since a mechanism is the structure which a pinch roller commits with a standby state only after a power source is turned on, the housesitting recording which uses a time switch etc. is possible for it.

The dual capstan system with two flywheels, the object for a right run and the object for the left run, is adopted, and since the reaction to an inversion run of a tape is also quick, trouble to a performance is not caused.
Moreover, the wow and flutter is also improved with a belt drive and two flywheels.

The band brake adopted with business use or a high-class machine is adopted, it operates certainly smoothly also in rapid stop operation, and a tape is not damaged.

In order to prevent that a rapid tension is added to a tape, if the power more than fixed is added to a tape, the reel base of the friction slip system which softens tension will be adopted.

The pause mechanism which can stop a run of a tape temporarily is carried also in a Recording play.

The hysteresis synchronous motor is adopted as a motor and change of the tape speed by smooth rotation operation and change of power supply voltage is suppressed.
