Main Features


Dual Cassette Transport 
The dual auto reverse cassette decks allow a tape to be cued in TAPE 2 while playing TAPE 1. Recording and playback and output is supported on both decks. Additionally, TAPE 1 has pitch control and an RTZ (Return to Zero: Return the counter to 0000) function.
Continuous Recording Feature
Continuous recording from TAPE 1 to 2 captures long recordings using two tapes. A convenient function for recording meeting minutes or other long events, the 202mkVI allows hours of recording. Recordings are captured from TAPE 1-Side A → TAPE 1-Side B → TAPE 2-Side A → TAPE 2-Side B.
Continuous Playback Function
The continuous playback function, which switches from TAPE 1 to 2, makes the 202mkVI convenient for background music. Like the continuous recording feature, the 202mkVI switches from TAPE 1-Side A → TAPE 1-Side B → TAPE 2-Side A → TAPE 2-Side B.
Parallel Recording Feature
The parallel recording function for TAPE 1 and 2 records audio to both decks simultaneously, creating two tapes with the same contents. A master tape and a copy for distribution can be created simultaneously such as when distribution is needed after recording, skipping the need for duplicating the master tape.
Mic mixing function convenient for karaoke and announcements using the microphone input
A front panel microphone input is provided, allowing the user to record annoucnements or commentary. The mic input is mixed with the RCA inputs, and each level can be mixed individually.

* It is not possible to record by mixing the sound played back from TAPE 1 (or TAPE 2) with the sound from the mic input to TAPE 2 (or TAPE 1).
One-touch Dubbing
Dubbing the contents of one tape to the other is available at the touch of a button. Both normal speed and high-speed dubbing are available. The synchro reverse dubbing function synchronizes the side A/B switching for both TAPE 1 and TAPE 2, so that the contents start at the same time – even when using tapes of different lengths.
