Pioneer CT-5151


The CT-5151 is Pioneer's advanced Dolby cassette tape deck.

The built-in Dolby noise reduction system has a Dolby indicator pilot lamp. Separate bias and equalizer tape selection permits the use of any cassette tape: standard, low-noise/high output or chromium dioxide, with perfect results. A unique recording peak level indicator employs an LED to measure the exact level of transient peak signals. The level limiter prevents distortion caused by over-level signals.

Other features include tape running pilot lamp, tape counter, skip button, memory rewind button, full auto-stop mechanism, electronically-controlled DC motor and independent record/playback level controls.
