Question about Sony MHC-GX470 Shelf System
I have looked everywhere in the operations manual for how to dub cassette tapes. I don't know how to copy the contents of tape A to Tape B. Help Please!
After looking @ the owner's manual online, I can see why you're confused. Man! It shouldn't that tough. You can always tell when the Chinese translate anything into English. If look you closely enough on pages 18 & 19, whenever the directions refer to "manual recording" one of functions that they don't specify is the recording of 1 tape onto another. The way that this manual was written the writer apparently didn't envision that anyone would want to do tape-to-tape (dubbing) recording.
On pg 18 it says to load a recordable (blank) tape into the B side deck. Easy enough. Next comes the tough to discern part.
In section 2 where it mentions "For Manual Recording and Sound Mixing:" Select the desired source to record or mix. In your case that would be the A deck. Here is where they needed to take a little time and explain that tape-to-tape recording is one of those possibilities. Notice that you'll need to place the B deck in standby. Then select the REC PAUSE/START to start the B deck & then (this is another place where they needed to be more clear) you'll need to simultaneously start (press the play button) the A deck which would be the recording source. In the future just remember that the A deck is the source and the B deck is the destination.

That is a fantastic post. You explained it beautifully right up to the point where you explain how to do it. You're right, they did not explain specifically how to do tape to tape dubbing. But I did not understand what you meant by putting the B deck on standby. It turns out that when the REC PAUSE/START button is press once it is in pause mode (standby). So it must be pressed twice before recording can be started. No need to press anything simultaneously. Once the record button has been put into start mode, play may be pressed at any time to start recording.

Chrome tape 40-15000Hz (±3dB)
Normal tape 40-14000Hz (±3dB)
Chrome tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)
Normal tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)
Imagine what its response at, say, 30000Hz might be. That's what doubling the playback speed would demand from the head and electronics. It ain't hi-fi anymore.
