re: V-900X

Thank you for this manual. I have had my deck since 1986 from the old Audio\Photo Clubs they had in Germany. It has been a work horse for me and have never let me down. So a little P.M. is about due for it. Thanks again. I have many brochures from that time that I have acquired. So if anyone wants me to upload them please message me or tell me if this is allowed in this group and I will do what I can to make this happen.

Thanks Vitold, for the owners manual for this. Been looking for months, was almost going to buy one. Thanks a bunch, just great, now I can figure out all the programming for my V-900X. Cheers! :o)

TEAC V900X DBX type I or II ???

Hi, can anyone tell me if my TEAC V900X has the DBX type I or type II NR system?
The DBX has stopped working and I happen to have a DBX type I external NR. Can I just put the DBX type I into the tape loop to compensate, or is it not compatible with the built-in DBX of the V900X (it might be Type II but I can't find the relevant spec.)?
Thanx to anyone who can help - I'd like to avoid a repair job just because of this if possible. Everything else still works fine.

re: TEAC V900X DBX type I or II ???


The DBX Type I is designed for reel to reel tape machine with higher tape speed where the frequency response is very linear across the full frequency range.
The DBX Type II is more suitable for cassette decks.

This is a great deck !

Have you tried to unplug/re-plug the internal DBX board ? Sometimes the connector causes some problems - it happened on my deck.

re: TEAC V900X DBX type I or II ???

I think these home desks had the Type II dBx, which compressed/expanded on the whole audio band at one rate. The Type I had several sections spread over the entire audio bandwidth 20Hz-20kHz, much like Dolby A, only more agressively, where each band had their own jobs without causing "breath" effect and other anomalies.

I'd say, go buy yrself another external Type II box. Less than US$50 shd do.

Hope this ain't coming too late. The R900X is a very very good deck with exceptional functions and performance.
