AIWA'S Finest Deck for
State-of-the-art Sound Performance

The fabulous AD-F99OB is AlWAs most
advanced cassette deck, with features that not
only ensure simple, foolproof operation, but
also unmatched fidelity. Unquestionably the
most superlative 3-head deck in its class,

the AD-FQQOB offers advanced engineering
for superior total performance.

Amorphous Combination Head

The AD-F9908 features a head which promises to
Surpass almost every previous standard of top
performance. Unlike most metals which have

a uniform atomic configuration, amorph0us alloy is
a new noncrystalline material with nonspecific.
non-directional atomic configuration. When utilized
as head material, it is able to display such ideal
characteristics as a high maximum magnetic flux
density. outstanding signal linearity (due to lower
coercivlty), and minimal generation of electromagnetic
noise. Add to this a remarkable ' '
hardness for extra durability. and
you can understand why the
AD~F9908 delivers such

Superior performance.

Dolby HX Professional: A revolutionary new
approach to the problems of recording bias
Not noise reduction but an entirely new way of
processing signals. this sophisticated circuitry
functions during all recordings but requires no
processing during playback. For this reason.
whether cassettes are recorded with or without
Dolby noise reduction you'll have the advantage

of full playback compatibility in any type of cassette
equipment. HX stands for "Headroom Extension".
and it operates during recording by means of a
special circuit which dynamically adjusts bias levels
in response to the input signals. This contributes
to significant improvements in dynamic range.
while at the same time making possible a naturally
flat response in the upper frequencies. Because

the bias level is fixed in conventional cassette
decks. they are inevitably handicapped by the
phenomena of "self bias" and mutual bias".
resulting in inability to accurately reproduce high
frequency signals above a certain volume level.
Dolby HX Professional has been specifically de5igned
to deal with this problem. By use of a servo circuit
which functions independently in right and left
stereo channels during recording, AlWA's new decks
can ensure that ideal bias levels are applied at all
times. Because this contributes to reducing easily-
incurred high frequency tape saturation. you'll be
amazed at the clarity and absence of distortion;

a definite difference. if you plan to make tapes from
digital program sources, AIWA's decks are also
designed to take optimum advantage of the increased
recording headroom offered by Dolby C noise
reduction. Results of recordings in this mode are
truly superb: with metal tape. the AD~FQQOB boasts
a frequency response of 20 to 20,000Hz with
signal/noise an outstanding 80d8 (above 5kHz).

Simplified Operation With Superb MUSiC Fidelity

Superb fidelity and easy operation in a simply
designed 2-head deck are yours with the
AD-F360. its feather-touch controls are mounted
on AlWAs flat keyboard operation panel for
enhanced convenience, while Dolby B & C
noise reduction and the fine bias control
enable you to make better recordings. With
that extra edge in features and fidelity, the
ADoF360 represents a remarkable sound value.

Flat Keyboard Operation Panel with IC Logic
Feather-Touch Control

AlWA's innovative flat keyboard operation panel
arranges all the feather-touch controls on a
horizontally angled panel so you can operate the
AD-F360 easily with light downward taps of your
finger. No more stooping to poke the controls like
with conventional designs. The feather-much
controls respond instantly to a light touch. and are
programmed so you can switch directly from mode
to mode without having to press Stop in between.

Cue & Review

This feature makes it possible to find tape locations
quickly by sound, in either direction. without
switching from the Play mode.

Dolby B a C Noise Reduction

Now a standard feature on the finest decks. Dolby C
noise reduction dramatically reduces annoying tape
hiss for clearer. more dynamic recordings. With
metal tape, the SIN ratio is 78dB (over 5kHz).
astonishing performance for a deck in this price
range. The widely popular Dolby B System is also
included for full compatibility when playing back
tapes recorded in this format.

Fine Bias Control for CrOz/Normal Tapes
Since recording characteristics may vary in different
brands of tape. this control enables 220% control

of recording bias for Normal and CrO, tapes.

reduction system. the newer Dolby C system is
included. It provides far more hiss reduction, while
expanding the dynamic range of every tape you make.
The result is clear. clean recordings that capture
the dynamic performance of todays digital and
high-level analog music sources.

Front Panel Fine Bias Control

Now you can get the best performance from
Normal and CrO; tapes, without the worry of bias
incompatibility. The fine bias control on the AD-F260

gives you a 120% range of adjustment that makes
it easy to "fine tune" bias to get exactly the
response that sounds best to you.
