Known for being top rated cassette decks, we are offering not one, but two Nakamichi 500 Dual Tracer cassette decks, available separately. Both were just completely serviced from top to bottom and are in perfect working order. 2 channel, 4 track design.
Nakamichi 500 2 Head Cassette Deck
Nakamichi 500 Dual-Tracer
This Nakamichi 500 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B noise reduction, it was first sold by Nakamichi in 1974 with a manufacturer suggested retail price of USD $475 and discontinued 4 years later in 1978.
The main features of the Nakamichi 500 are: 2 heads, mechanical 3 digit tape counter and memory stop, manual tape type selection and capable of handling normal and chrome tapes with additional manual equalization selection, belt driven single-capstan transport.
Typical of this deck is the 70's top loading layout with the cassette compartiment located on the left side of the deck. Tape eject is operated mechanically and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well.
Level meters used on the 500 are analog needle VU reading meters. Mechanical transport controls for reliable 500 transport function selection.
The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the 500 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. The 19kHz multiplex pilot slgnal present in FM stereo broadcasts can cause false triggering of the noise reduction system. The switchable MPX filter of the 500 filters out the pilot signal, and assuring proper Dolby processing of FM stereo programs.
To make live recordings this deck has 3 microphone inputs (for left, right and center channels) to connect microphones with a jack connector. For undisturbed listening a jack connector for a pair of stereo headphones is supplied. Connection to other audio components for plaback can be achieved by a RCA cable and recording from a source by a RCA cable.
