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.

 Pioneer has incorporated all the latest innovations in cassette deck design into one reasonably-priced, high-performance package that is sure to meet your every need. In many cases our engineers have throughly re-designed a particular feature to extend a its benefis under conditions that match actual use. A good example is the front-loading, front-access design itself. An ingeniously engineered, easy-to-handle tape compartment opens up the full potential of cassette tapes by increasing convenience without sacrificing quality performance. Your tapes are positioned vertically, held securely at all times by a twin-link mechanism. You can easily observe tape movement and direction, and even read tape labels. Changing tapes is literally a "snap". The 2-motor drive system in the Pioneer CT-F 8282 also makes a lot of sense and saves a lot of wear and tear. A cspecial DC high-torque motor provides super-stable tape transport in Play and Record modes, while another miniature powerhouse delivers fast rewind and fast-forward operation. Special electronics and greatly improved convenience features round out the CT-F 8282, from Pioneer.
 Adds new Dimension to Audio Enjoyment
Fast and easy front panel operation is achieved through carefully apportioned control layout and Pioneers's original vertical cassette transport system. Simple stand up cassette loading makes handling effortless.
High Reliability 2-Motor Transport
Tape motion during record and playback is regulated by a superbly stable DC servo controlled motor, while a high torque mechanical governor equipped motor drives fast forward and rewind. Precision design and finishing of the capstan, belt, large size flywheel and tape take up mechanism assure outstanding performance in terms of wow and flutter and stability.
Select Transport Modes Directly
Direct chaange system allows any mode (record, play, fast forward, rewind) to be selected without alternating with the stop switch. Operating convenience becomes additionally increased, while tape is protected from undue stress.
Reduced Tape Noise with Built-in Dolby System
Without adversely affecting the sound quality of the program source, the built-in Dolby system can significantly reduce bothersome tape hiss noise (by up to approximately 10 dB at high frequencies). Wide dynamic range, excellent S/N ratio recording and plauback can be fully enjoyed.
3-stage Direct Coupled Head Amplifier
Equalization and microphone amplifiers are comprised of 3-stage direct coupled circuitry to provide excellent phase characteristics. Application of effective negative feedback up to ultra high frequencies assures stable high frequency response and a dynamic range exceeding 40 dB of the base level.
 Tough and Durable Ferrite Soild head
Ferrite solid composing the record/playback head resists abrasion and features long durability, superior high frequency response and head touch, in addition to minimized problems of dirt adhesion and magnetization noise.
Independent Bias and Equalization Selection
Nearly all types of tape can be employed, including chrome, low noise, ferrichrome and standard, by providing separate settings for bias and equalization. The special qualities of each type become fully experienced. A new equalization design (3180 +70 µs) is included and the electronic switching circuit eliminates switching noise.
Large Level Meters and LED Peak Indicator
Large size, easy to see level meters are mounted on the front panel together with a light emitting diode (LED) peak indicator which advises of instantaneous over levels. Reliable signal monitoring can be performed, permitting low distortion recording of wide dynamic range program sources.
Quality Convenience Features
Memorey Stop Switch - employ during recording or playback by simply pressing the memory button and resetting the counter at the beginning of the desired passage. When the passage is completed, press the rewind lever. The tape will then rewind to the selected point and stop automatically.
Input Selector Switch - selects between Line (pin jack) and DIN jack input signals. By setting to DIN when recording with microphones, microphone input level can be attenuated by 10 dB.
