3 Motor 3 Head Stereo Tape Deck (1974-80)
Pioneer's engineering policy assures reliable operation and quality performance from the new RT-1011L 4-track stereo tape deck.
A thick 5mm front suspension panel and solid, die-cast framework provide extra strength margin for the 10-1/2 inch reel load and stable tape transport system.
Wow and flutter is reduced by the precision 4/8-pole hysteresis synchronous capstan drive motor, coupled with a "tuned" 100mm flywheel and high-precision 0.2u error capstan. A high-torque 6-pole induction motor ensures optimum tape tension.
The 2-channel 4-track recording and playback heads are hyperbolic for superb tonal quality, ideal head-to-tape contact, and exhibit excellent electromagnetic characteristics. All three heads are arranged in a short tape path to enhance stability.
And Pioneer's long experience in tape deck design means top versatility. The RT-1011L includes switched circuits for 2-step bias and 2-step equalization for balanced recordings with any tape.
Advanced design and electronics also means wide dynamic range from the mic / line recording amplifier and offers easy mic / line mixing, solenoid-operated direct-changeable function buttons, auto record facility for use with pre-set timer, large level meters, lockable pause, and more.
