Aiwa AD-WX909


Aiwa's AD-WX909 combines a dual capstan, 3-head recording deck and a quick reverse, playback only deck for the best in recording and playback.

Deck 2 has a 3-head design for superb sound performance, with the separate recording and playback heads engineered for optimum response in their respective tasks.

In conventional 2-head decks, the same head is used for both recording and playback (and a the other head for erasure) so a compromise must be made in gap dimensions to enable adequate performance in both modes.

Other features of the AD-WX909 include Dolby B and C, HX Pro, Direct in CD inputs, double speed dubbing, feather touch logic controls and independent digital tape counters for each deck.

re: AD-WX909

I have one of these, fully serviced with new belts & idler, and it sounds absolutely brilliant that is all I can say about it really. It seems to sound good straight away without any need for changing the bias setting. And it looks great too.

If you find one of these buy it, you won't be disappointing.
