AIWA AD-6500 Cassette Deck
This top of the range Dolby cassette deck is designed for stacking or placement on a wall unit. All the operations and controls are accessible from the front. The facade is finished in a very stylish and modern polished aluminium.
Unrivalled is the unique automatic loading mechanism. By simply inserting the cassette, the automatic loading mechanism is triggered and automatically puts the cassette into play or recording standby mode. The loader mechanism developed and patented by AIWA and is characterized by its robust construction. Automatic side changing is performed by a small auxiliary motor. As a result, the tape drive mechanism does not move at all.
Modern functions include repeater and forward search buttons, a memory counter, auto-stop, 3-bias tape selector (including CrO2) clear control instruments, and dual signal peak VU indicators with LED lighting. DIN and RCA connectors prove the ease of use of this exceptional AIWA device.
The soft loading and eject functions are a particularly nice touch and increase the feeling of quality when using the AD-6500 cassette player. I can imagine having the lights down low, pulling out a nice recording of the latest jazz funk collection and inserting the tape in. Whirring, buzz, then catching into place. Using my index finger to press down on the large center button to press play. The familiar sound of cassette tape hiss plays, and I move my hand over to adjust the Dolby noise reduction setting. There is less hiss now and the music slowing begins to play. Oh, that's right, I have to raise the volume on my AIWA AX-7500 amplifier. That's better. Now we can get into the beat.
Together with the AIWA receiver AX-7500 EE, this results in an ideal and beautiful combination for your hi-fi system
