re: RS-1500US

This machine has a very wide spindle to hold tapes. My tapes have 5 small holes that fit on the deck. Are the spindles on the 1500 interchangeable or does the top picee come off, or are my tapes incompatible?

re: RS-1500US

Thank you very much for the manual. Do you happen to know what the "Throughput" jack on the back is for?

re: RS-1500US

This jack is simply connected in parallel to Line In. This is according to the Service Manual and schematic diagram.
