Noise Reduction Unit (1972)

add a review add a review



The TEAC AN-60 noise reduction unit with the patented Dolby noise reduction system will enable you to make superior recordings at reduced tape speeds.

The primary reason for using higher speeds in the past was to reduce tape hiss and noise as well as to provide increased high frequency response.

With the AN-60 tape hiss is electronically reduced in amplitude so that it no longer limits tape quality.

You will discover that the recordings made at slow speeds with the Dolby process equal or surpass those made in the past at higher tape speeds, thus costs are drastically reduced.

The AN-60 is also particularly useful when dubbing from one tape to another; formerly tape hiss was inevitable, actually the tape noise doubled with each dubbing.

With the Dolby process this no longer occurs and tape hiss is eliminated.
