Portable Stereo Cassette Deck (1977-80)
The KD-2 is one of the lightest and most portable cassette tape decks on the market. It weighs only 8.8 lbs or 4.0 kg. with batteries, so you aren't flattened with fatigue if you have to carry it on your shoulder for extended hours in the field.
Its basic features are nearly identical to those on the KD-1636 Mark II, but here's a brief rundown:
The KD-2's core-less DC motor features reduced power consumption, lighter weight and stable performance against voltage drops. And it operates on only four D size batteries, external 6VDC or household AC power sources.
There are also a Master Record Volume Control for fade-in/out and a 3-Position Input Switch (Line, Mic 0dB, -20dB).
VU meters are extra large, well damped and linear responsive over a wide range, and a headphone amp is built in for on the spot monitoring.
