Aiwa AD-F880


The AD-F880 is a quality 3-head deck with a variety of advanced features for superb high fidelity performance.

The 3-head design incorporates Aiwa's super DX recording and playback heads which feature cores wound with PC-OCC copper wire having ultra high conductivity for greater musical resolution.

The diecast alloy Bias Shield Head Block minimizes interference between the recording and playback heads.

Aiwa's original micro-grain surfaced dual capstan drive improves tape transport performance, while the AMTS damps out resonance for clearer sound reproduction.
