Special Features

  • Crossfield audio head system: in the Crossfield audio head system, the so-called bias magnetization of the tape is not performed by the recording/playback head, as is generally the case, but by a separate audio head (bias head) located opposite the aforementioned recording/playback head. This audio head arrangement allows signal modulation over the entire audio frequency spectrum without any interference from bias magnetization as is the case with other audio head systems.
  • Automatic band cut-off
  • Separate high and low frequency controls
  • Multiplay
  • Echo
  • Vertical and horizontal operation possible
