Pioneer CT-F6262


Your first reaction to the Pioneer CT-F6262 will probably be surprise. For the price it packs a lot of potential for anyone who is making the move to individual stereo components, and desires solid cassette performance.

Pioneer makes more expensive decks, of course. But the CT-F6262 is certainly one of the very best we make when it comes to adding up cost / performance value. Some of the features make this last point obvious.

The Pioneer perfected Automatic Chrome Tape Detection System - an exclusive - eliminates the guesswork when you use the wide-range Chrome tapes. It switches the bias / equalization to the correct values for Chrome, and also makes it easy to take advantage of the newer Ferrichrome as well as standard low-noise tapes.

Another advantage that costs the world in some tape decks, but not ours, is our Vertical Hold Cassette Compartment. Tapes are held firmly upright so you can read labels and see tape movement. Very convenient.

All controls are up front, too, for easy access. They include Dolby, Memory Stop and easy touch Pause and tape transport keys.

We've also used an electronically controlled DC servomotor with built-in generator for excellent wow and flutter, a Permalloy Solid head for improved durability, and a wide dynamic range preamplifier.
