Fig. 6

Connect the measuring instruments as shown in
Fig. 6 and record a 1,000 Hz sine wave signal at
0 VU. Playback the resultant signal and measure
the overall distortion factor.

NOTE: 1. At this time, distortion of the Audio
Frequency Oscillator must be sufficiently
small.

2. When measuring the distortion factor,
new tape should be used.

Fig. 7

As shown in Fig. 7 first record a 1,000 Hz sine
wave signal on track No. 3 at +3VU level. Next,
record under a non-input condition Then playback
the tape on track No‘3 and 1' (reversed condition
of tape) through the B.P.F. (1,000 Hz Band Pass
Filter, sensitivity 1,000 Hz, ratio 1:1) and obtain
the ratio from the following formula.

_ Eo
c - 20 log —E‘ _ E1 (an)

Where, C = Desired cross talk ratio (dB)
E.J = 1,000 Hz signal output level (V) -
V/II/l/A

E2 = 1,000 Hz cross talk level (V)
E1 = Non-input cross talk level (V)

Fig. 8

As shown in Fig. 8, connect a High Sensitivity
V.T.V.M. to the Line Output. Playback a virgin
tape and take a V.T.V.M. reading of the output level.
Next record a 1,000 Hz sine wave signal at +3VU,
then playback this recorded signal and take a
V.T.V.M. reading of the output level. Next, using
this pre-recorded tape, record under a non-input
condition and take a reading of the noise level
output of the erased signal and obtain a ratio bet-
ween the two from the following formula:

Er = 20 log % (as)
2 - I

Where, Er = Desired erase ratio (dB)
Eo= 1,000 Hz signal output level (V)
E2 = Non-input signal recorded level (V)
E = Virgin tape noise output level (V)
