Connections for a Grundig reel to reel tape recorder

I have an old Grundig tape recorder (1960's) which I wish to connect to an external tuner to transfer the recordings to my computer. It has Din plugs with symbols on them, but I don't remember what they stand for! Can you help? One symbol is a double wavy line, like '' = '', but wavy. Another symbol is a square with the right hand edge protruding beyond the edge top and bottom, like a square '' d '' without long upstroke. Another symbol is like a '' Q '' but reversed right to left. I hope you can help! Thanks very much. Bill Hart (Warrington, Cheshire).

Akai Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorder Model X2000SD how do I hook up the cables for sound? I can get sound through the speakers, but can't turn it up.


Most reel to reel tape recorders have "line out" in the form of RCA phono jacks. These are designed to be connected to an external amplifier. Some unit, however also have an internal amplifier and will output to speaker jacks that should be clearly marked. If your unit has such jacks and you cannot control the sound, your amplifier must be bad. Keep in mind, on most recorders, there are no internal speakers or output amplifier and the volume controls on the front are for recording only.

With a bit of luck you may be able to find some adapters to allow a plug into the Line IN port of the computer.

Here is a site that appears to have the Grundig manual if you register ( its free). There may also be some very knowledgeable people there that you provide the info you need.

I have an old technics su-z22 amp and a denton tape deck with an it seems an incompatable record out socket from the amp and two rca sockets on the tapedeck how can i marry the two up


Having looked at the back of the model referred to I see two sets of RCA sockets for the connection of two tape decks. So I don't know what you mean by incompatible record out socket? There is a 5 pin din but you can use the two RCA sockets to connect the tapedeck. If you have a good quality RCA lead it should record and playback. You can in fact connect two tape recorders to this unit using the RCA sockets.

Low volume recording on reel to reel tape deck


Problem could be in either the record or playback circuits of unit. Try playing back a tape in another machine to see what the volume is like. If also low then the issue is with the record amp circuits.
Fixing will not be cost effective, however.

I cannot record digital when I try to set up my Magnavox ZV457MG9 (DVD). The unit will only record in the external L1. I have a Comcast box.


This is normal for the ZV457MG9 units. The Magnavox ZV457MG9 does not have an analog (NTSC) tuner; additionally there is no digital (ATSC or QAM) tuner either. It will only record on line in (L1) which is a composite input (limited to SD). The HDMI port on the recorder is an HDMI out to TV, not an input. The component video jacks are also only outputs.

The manual for the Magnavox ZV457MG9/F7 is available here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf . The unit was manufactured for Magnavox by Funai; thus another link to the manual is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/ZV427MG9.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

(If your DVD/VCR recorder had a tuner, it would record off a coaxial (antenna) cable input. Many DVRs can record off the HD connection (HDMI or component); that may be a better option for replacing this Magnavox unit.)

How must I connect the amplifyer V500 with my computer for recording from a tape player?


I assume you want to record from tape to computer and monitor the recordings later.
Simple three steps.
1) Connect the tape deck line out ( or labeled PLAY ) to any one of the inputs like Aux / Tuner using an 2RCA connector.
2) Connect Rec out from the SUV' to line input of your PC ( blue socket ) sound card.
3) To monitor your PC sound after recording on to Hard Disc , connect a cable between the PC sound out ( green socket ) and the the SUV Tape monitor IN ( sometimes labeled PLAY ) Now comes the tricky partbobhifi_30.jpg.When you want to record on to your PC put the source switch on the SUV to where you have connected the Tape deck ( Aux / Tuner ). On the SUV keep the Tape Monitor switch to source ( released position ). After having done the recording to monitor and hear the Hard Disk playback turn on the Tape Monitor switch ( dipress it ). The pressing of the Tape switch on the SUV lets you toggle between the source and recording - In your case Tape deck and PC
