Pioneer CT-F8080


The Pioneer CT-F8080 features a fast and easy front panel operation, achieved through carefully apportioned control layout and Pioneer's original vertical cassette transport system. Simple stand up cassette loading makes handling effortless.

Tape motion during record and playback is regulated by a superbly stable DC servo controlled motor, while a high torque mechanical governor equipped motor drives fast forward and rewind.

Precision design and finishing of the capstan, belt large size flywheel and tape take-up mechanism assure outstanding performance in terms of flutter and stability.

The CT-F8080 direct change system allows any mode (record, play, fast forward, rewind) to be selected without alternating with the stop switch.

Operating convenience becomes additionally increased, while tape is protected from undue stress.
