Stereo Cassette Tape Deck (1977-79)
The Pioneer CT-F1000 is the deck with everything, including automatic Cr02 tape detector, multiple bias and equalization settings, pitch control, memory stop, mpx filter, tape slack canceller, oscillator, full auto stop, solenoid operated buttons and more.
The exceptional playback and recording heads are made from a single Ferrite crystal each, instead of the usual grains of Ferrite, and the high quality DC servomotor ensures low levels of wow and flutter.

A Classic machine from the heyday of the format. Excellent sound (for its pre-metal heyday) and superior ergonomics. You have to know where to look for decks with the same replacement frequency generated speed control Capstan motors and they're becoming increasingly difficult to find. I own two, with a couple of spare motors for each. The heads will last forever and they'll playback Type IV tapes just fine. They just can't shove the metal oxide coatings around like the 1250 and its decendent decks can......
