This model is equipped with a Tape Selector Switch facilitating the use of high performance wide range tape. Setting this switch according to the tape being used adjusts the equalization for better frequency response characteristics.

A special feature of this model is the Automatic Shut-OFF function of the unit. When the Automatic Shut-Off Switch is set to ON position, the power of the entire unit is cut at the end of the tape. A very convenient feature should the recorder be left unattended.
The 1722W is also equipped with pause control for momentarily suspending tape travel during recording or playback. Especially useful for editing tape during recording.
