SOURCE: Can't get a signal from my Turntables to record on my tape deck. I'm running turntables through RX 206 Amplifier and don't understand the RCA ins and outs.

Connect them to a receiver with a phono preamp.

The issue is, that I purchased a set of 2 belts via eBay for my deck. I fixed the problem with the belt to move the cassette. But there is a second set in the pack and I cannot install this. Perhaps it is...


The belts you have replaced are used to operate the loading/unloading mechanism I assume. On the bottom of the cassette mechanism you will find the other belts...one from motor to idler wheel assy. or actual reel hub. Older cassette decks also used a belt to drive the tape counter mechanism.

Older cassette decks used belts from the motor to the capstan, another from the motor to an idler assy. or tape reels (FF & RR) and another belt driving the mechanical tape counter.

Hi, Bought marantz tape deck on Ebay. Works fine but running slower than normal How to fix, Im a Hobbiest


Usually this is due to old belts. You should replace them.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you'll probably have to adjust motor speed. This is done by a variable resistor that may be found on the main board or sometimes on the motor itself.

Hope you can solve the problem.

I recently aquired a carver c9 sonic hologram generator without a manual..... from what I have read it can be hooked up between amp and pre amp but there are other ways? advantages?


A tape loop connection would allow you to bypass it completely, otherwise not much difference.

Attach it in any tape loop as you would any other processor or tape deck. Or get a dbx 400 Program Route Selector that supports 3 tape decks and 3 processor loops and allows selection and utilization of any or all before or after the tapes, while using only one tape loop on the receiver or preamp.

I have a C-9, a 400 and some other audio toys to justify having the 400.

The C-9 is interesting.

Where to buy a crawl tool to reinstall belts of sony tc we 605s cassette tape deck


Hi,
There is no crawl tool to reinstall belts in this tape deck, it just needs little expertise/ skills.
First put flat belt on motor pulley then slowly thread the flat belt on both capstan wheels with help of tweezers or some thing.
Let me know your email to send you related service manual free copy that has exploded views of mechanism and I hope that will help you to reinstall belts in correct direction/ way.
Thanks.

Bose 901 Active EQ Loop


There's good news and bad news. The bad news is that a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. For one thing, the other speakers around the room are not designed to recieve its Active Equalization and for another, if you engage your Tape Monitor you will not be able to play digital sources. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on my receiver it disables any digital inputs.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers. You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).

Run the dbx and BSR in tandem with each through the tape monitor loop on the receiver but be advised you can only use them on analog source stero material. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread the sound around the room.

At my PC workstation across the room I have a stack of analog processors and sources including dbx 3bx-ds, dbx 120x-ds, BSR Spatial Enhancer, BBE 462 Sonic Maximizer, SS-525x EQ, Carver C-9, dbx-224x, JVC cassette deck, Dual 1249 Turntable running through a Garrard MRM-101 Preamp, Pioneer PDR-509 CD Recorder and the Media Center PC stereo analog channels all running through a dbx 400x Program Route Selector (a godsend) which is attached to my ONE TAPE MONITOR on my Pioneer VSX-36TX Receiver. Of course, I have some of my analog processors running in tandem, too, since the 224x only has three processor and three tape loops.

For listening/recording anything 2-channel analog I engage the stack through the Tape Monitor. For everything else I turn the Tape Monitor off. The nice thing about the stack being separate is that I can doodle with recording and use headphones while the TV/DVD/Blu-Ray do something else.

Pioneer CD deck Receiver XR P250. Neither of the two tapes work. They dont go round.


Hi John

This is something I can tell you that you can sort out yourself with a little bit of mechanical aptitude and a couple of screwdrivers.

FIRST turn the power off to the unit.

If you pop the lid off the unit, you will see that the capstan drive belts to the tape decks mechanism have failed, Either turned to back muck like windscreen sealant, or just broken and dropped off. The belts (each deck has one) will need to be replaced. The part number for the belt(according to my records) is REB1272 You should still be able to get them from Pioneer spares directly in your country. Let me know where you are and I can get some better information to you.
good luck. Happy to assist you further and answer any questions you may have.

regards

Harmon Kardon reel to reel tape player


I have a Harmon Kardon TD-3 that I'm looking to sell. It's not in its original cabinet, but in a smaller box that takes up less space.
