Kenwood KX-2060


Kenwood engineers have again advanced the art of cassette deck design with the remarkable KX-2060, a superbly engineered deck with performance characteristics equal to the best available today.

The KX-2060 incorporates many advanced design features such as the ability to record and playback every kind of tape - including the latest high-output metal tape

A three-position tape equalization selector and a variable fine-bias adjustor using two oscillators, plus calibratable double Dolby noise reduction circuitry, ensure that every tape will perform to its limits.

Moreover, the 3-head design offers important advantages both in optimum sound quality and monitoring convenience.

The extraordinary electro-magnetic performance of the KX-2060 is fully complemented by mechanical excellence. A new constant tension tape transport, and Kenwood's own rugged two-belt drive system, all ensure that nothing stands in the way of the highest quality recording and playback of tapes.

The KX-2060 is also very easy to operate, and features electronic push-button controls and advanced fluorescent peak level meters. Its carefully laid out front panel is designed to match equivalent Kenwood amplifiers and tuners.
