¼ When dubbing, the recording level and the Dolby NR

DOLBY NR switch.

¼ When listening to the playback sound during normal speed

dubbing, the DOLBY NR switch remains off even if it is

¼ Operation using the REC MUTE u and PAUSE ( ) y

buttons of deck B is permitted during normal speed dubbing.

¼ The following operation is available only when a MARANTZ CD

player with the synchro recording capability is connected to the
cassette deck.

(2) By using the PLAY, FF, or REW functions, the reading of the

counter will change to indicate index position.

¼ During recording and playback operations, the counter is useful

for noting the location of existing programs or positions where
recording is to be started.

¼ The reading of this counter does not correspond with that of any

other deck.

¼ The Dolby noise reduction system substantially reduces the tape

background noise (hiss) inherent in the cassette medium.

¼ Tape background noise consists primarily of high frequency

information, which is particularly annoying during soft passages,
The Dolby NR system increases the level of low volume mid and
high frequency signals during recording and reduces the level of
these signals by an identical amount during playback, As a result,
the playback signal is identical to the original source, but the level
of background noise generated by the tape is greatly reduced.

¼ The operating principle of Dolby C NR is similar to that of Dolby B

NR except for the encoding/decoding response curves. The noise
reduction effect obtained with Dolby C NR is up to 20 dB,
compared to 10 dB with Dolby B NR. In addition, Dolby C NR uses
an anti-saturation network and spectral skewing circuitry for a
significant improvement in the dynamic range of the mid-to high-




This deck is equipped with the Dolby HX PRO headroom extension
system. Since the system functions automatically during recording, no
switching operation or adjustment is required. The system is effective
with any type of Normal, High and Metal tape.
The Dolby HX PRO headroom extension system functions during
recording to raise the saturation level in the high frequency range.
Therefore, most of the high frequency range distorted or lost during
recording on conventional cassette decks are more faithfully
recorded on the new MARANTZ cassette deck.

Features of the Dolby HX PRO Headroom Extension System
(1) Performance of Normal and High Position tapes can be improved

to very close of that offered by Metal tape.

(2) The dynamics in the high frequency range are improved


(3) Since no decoding is necessary during playback, the improved

sound can be enjoyed on any type of tape deck, including
portable players and car audio systems.

(4) The system functions whether the Dolby B/C NR system is

engaged or not.
