Practically flawless dynamic range. I did some blind-folded tests with my musician friends:
none of us could tell whether the audio was coming from a vinyl record, a CD, or a recording made with the CT-939.
I just loved this tape deck, even though lack of the Dolby calibration was an issue with Dolby C, at least what came to my unit I bought in 1990:
due to pumping one could not listen to recordings with Dolby C on, one was stuck to Dolby B when listening. Neither did the music search work properly.
High, very high quality recording results, is not that what cassette tape decks were made for? Built like a tank, lovely to use, especially thanks to the very accurate peak hold level meters. Still, not perfect.
