Aiwa AD-WX220


The Aiwa AD-WX220 is no ordinary double cassette deck. Why? Because it offers four times the performance.

The AD-WX220 has a high precision double speed which enables you to copy tapes in half the time.

But there's more; using the ALL-TRAC recording system, both sides of the tape can be copied simultaneously.

Add it together and it's the deck that copies your tapes four times faster than conventional double cassette decks.

Together with microprocessor assisted random program editing, tape dubbing operations are finished quickly and efficiently - now that's extraordinary performance.

re: AD-WX220

I have had this deck for some years, and my wife loved to use it to both play and copy music cassettes. I left it along from 6 years after she died and finally this year 2016 I checked it out and the belts had melted to the wheels. I found a single older repair guy in Wheaton who repaired it and now it plays again. Lost the User manual, but found the service manual here. If I do find the user manual, I will scan to PDF and upload.
