DOLBY NOISE REDUCTION SYSTEM
Setting the Dolby NR Switch to ON position activates the
Dolby circuit to expand low level signals before they are
recorded and lowers them by precisely that same degree at
playback time, thus reducing the extraneous and super-
-irnposed noise by as much as 10dB. This revolutionary
process reduces tape hiss to a completely inaudible level.
’ When playing back a Dolby recorded tape, the Dolby NR Switch
must also be set to ON position.
