Pioneer T-WD5R
60,000yen(1996 release)

The twin recording-play double reverse deck carrying the newly developed digital processing system.

The digital processing system which realized the digitize of the signal processing inside the deck is carried.
This system reads the music signal of an analog by the reproducing head, changes it into a digital signal, and is performing the subsequent signal processing by the digital treatment.
Furthermore, a 40kHz wide band play is realized by carrying the legato linking conversion adopted as a compact disk player or the DAT deck.

Digital noise reduction was carried, the digital filter divided the audio frequency band into two or more bands, and the tape hiss is separated and removed by expanding a music signal and the level difference of a noise.

Digital XD FLAT System which rectifies the frequency characteristic of a tapes for a flat is carried.
A computer checks the high region recording characteristics of a using tapes, and the proper bias control is performed.

Digital ALCA (Auto SFT Level Control with tape Analysis) which adjusts a recording level automatically according to the capacity of a tapes and the sound volume of the source is carried.
From the analyzation of a bias and a sensitivity, and the analyzation of high region high sound-recording capacity, the peek recording level and the initial recording level were set up, and the recording level is automatically set up according to an input signal.

Digital TDNS (Tape Duplication Noise Suppressor) which decreases the noise at the time of a tape copy is carried, and the cleaner copy is realized by reducing the tape hiss by the side of a play.
Moreover, in the silent fraction, a bias controller works and the bias noise is also reduced.

It judges whether it is the sound which was filled with the tape, and digital FLEX(Frequency SFT Level EXpander) System which realizes a tone-quality modification by amplifying high region level automatically is carried.

By the optical digital interconnection with digital equipment, such as a compact disk player, the digital synchro functionality which can be digital input recorded (fs = only in case of 44.1kHz) is carried direct.
A sound recording starts only at the time of a music signal input, and it creates the blank between music for 4 seconds automatically.

The last memory functionality is carried and a data, a main switchpoint position, etc. of FLAT System can be memorized.

The Pioneer compact disk player which carried the compact disk-DECK synchro functionality and carries the functionality corresponding to a compact disk-DECK synchro is interlocked with, and auto coordinated movements are possible.

The MIC input which can do a mixing sound recording with a line input, the parallel sound-recording functionality, and the music search function the head of can be pulled out to 15 order bothways are carried.

Wireless remote control is attached.
