The Pioneer / Craig 3302 8 track deck was manufactured by Pioneer for Craig Corporation Los Angeles, CA. and features both Craig and Pioneer names on the front plate. Contrary to the posted description this deck does not have an amplifier built in. It is a player and recorder only with RCA line level, and 1/4 Mic inputs and an RCA line level output. It records via a 2 way recording sensitivity switch (no recording level control) monitored by a single level meter for both channels, that is back light with a red lamp when recording (no audio output while recording). Like other Pioneer equipment this deck is built super rugged and to last. This deck features a strong AC synchronous motor that plays even difficult tapes well. There are auto stop functions that eject the cartridge when the corresponding cycle is complete and with that shuts the unit off when done playing. It allows to play one program, the entire cartridge, or continuously without ejecting. The unit I have works well and sounds outstanding with clear highs. First mine did not record, as the resistor that feeds the bias oscillator form the power supply was open. Now it records but one channel is weak. Does anybody have a schematic for this deck?
