AIWA Cassette Decks
It is getting more challenging for the collector to build thier range of quality cassette decks, especially of the top loading format. The smoked lids can be cracked or scracthed through use and lower the overall desirability of an item. Many people appreciate the VU Metres and sliding guides that are not generally available in 1980s equipment. The catalog pages here give specifications for the AIWA AD-1800, AD-1600, AD-1300 and AD-1200 models. It should be noted that all of these systems have the initial Dolby Noise Reduction systems, except for the entry level AD-1200 that has a proprietary DNL noise reduction format. The DNL format is described as a singled ended hiss reduction system.
