Stereo Cassette Deck (1978)
This model is the best buy in JVC's line of high performing Hi-Fi cassette decks.
Its basic parameters are impressive: frequency response from 30 to 16,000Hz with Chrome, wow/flutter of less than 0.06% wrms and a signal to noise ratio of better than 56dB with ANRS off.
If you're shopping for a medium priced, high performance deck, the KD-55 is a likely candidate for your stereo system.
Like more expensive JVC cassette decks, the KD-55 employs a precision frequency generator FG servomotor to drive its capstan and reels in the advanced JVC drive configuration.
The FG motor is renowned for its rotational accuracy independent of temperature changes, and simplified and advanced system has dramatically improved the stability and reliability of JVC cassette decks.
