Akai GX-4400D Manual Needed

Stonie's picture

Hello dear HiFi-Engineers,
I´m looking for a manual and using instructions for the Akai GX4400D. The informations on the net are rather thin seeded so i´m asking You here.
Is the GX4400D maybe similar to other, i found a manual for the Akai 4400.
Could it be that the difference is just the GX-heads?
Sorry for my English,i´m natively German.

These units are similar

Yes you have the difference between the GX heads and the standard 1 micron gap heads.
Mechanically they are very close to the same, although the head block is different.
Electrically, I believe they are some major differences, with the GX4400D being the newer design, and the 4400 being the older design.

I figured I reach out to help a bit, as my heritage is 50% German

Hi Tom,
nice to meet You. Thx for Your comment but to me it is still not quite clear where else the recorder are the same and where not.
I`ll try to get as many intel as i can get about these models. And if my machines become bad i know a store nearby where the repair-guy knows where to tweak and what to do.
I`ll give to him all intel i have and he`ll know...
We had a nice talk a few days ago.
Best regards
Alex
