What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Ultra-Dynamic Professional Choice for High Fidelity

There are a number of reasons why professional recordists working in the cassette format choose, and prefer - Maxell UD cassettes. Foremost among these is the ferric oxide particle itself, a micro-fine coating of PX gamma-hematite for very wide range high fidelity reproduction.

The exclusive maxell thermal-hardening binder system is responsable for the notably smooth oxide coating, finished to a mirror surface for ideal head-to-tape contact and elimination of drop-out causing irregularities. Maxell UD cassettes are well known for extra high output lower noise, low distortion, and very wide dynamic range.

No wonder audio laboratories select Maxell UD cassettes to test the abilities of new recorders.

Any critic who wants to do a completely fair and impartial test of a tape recorder is very fussy about the tape he uses. because a flowed tape can lead to same very misleading results. A tape that can't cover the full audio spectrum can keep a recorder from ever reaching its full potential. A tape that's noisy makes it hard to measure how quiet the recorder is. A tape that doesn't have a wide enough bias latitude can make you question the bias settings.

And a tape doesn't sound consistently the same, from end to ebd, from tape to tape, can make you question the stability of the electronics.

If a cassette or 8-track jams,it can suggest some nasty, but erroneous comments about the drive mechanism. And if a cassette or 8-track introduces wow and flutter, it's apt to produce some test results that anyone can argue with.

Fortunately, we test Maxell cassette, 8-track and reel-to-reel tape to make sure itdoesn't have the problems that plague other tapes. So it's not surprising that most critics end up with our tape in thier tape recorders. It's one way to guarantee the equipment will get a fair hearing.

Our cassettes are put together as carefully as our tape.

Other companies are willing to use wax paper and plastic rollers in thier cassettes. We're not. We use carbon-impregnated material. And Delrin rollers. Because nothing sticks to them. A lot of companies weld their cassettes together. We use screws. Screws are more expensive. But they also make for stronger cassettes.

Maxell. The tapethat's too good for most equipment.
