SAE C101 - Computer Direct-Line Cassette Deck

cassette deck

The Computer Direct-Line circuitry developed by SAE allows for a most efficient processing of the audio signal from input to output stages and isolates the audio information from the front panel controls. The elimination of front panel control contact with the audio signals negates the necessity for using potentially noisy and conventional rotary knob methods of switching. A microprocessor-controlled logic network replaces the conventional componentry mechanics to relay the appropriate commands from the front panel to the audio circuits. The C101 is a full-logic, 3-head (Sendust), 2-motor cassette deck. Soft-touch tactile feedback switches control all functions of tape transport, EQ and Bias selection, Dolby B-C Noise Reduction and programmable memory operations. Alpha-numeric LED displays indicate the status of elapsed and remaining time, tape lenght and tape use. An elaborate LED level display monitors the recorded level in both peak hold and average response modes. Linear slide controls regulate recording levels for increased gain without sacrificing critical signal-to-noise ration. This series of SAE (Scientific Audio Electronics) components were actually manufactured in Korea by Inkel, some of the components being even labelled as Inkel/SAE.
