202MKVII Dual cassette deck with USB output

The 202MKVII is an easy-to-handle, good sounding dual-well cassette deck for home or professional use in karaoke bars and sports centres, yet also for town halls, civic and community centres, schools or libraries. It can also serve as a reliable audio storage or backup solution for authorities like police departments or civil defence thanks to the proven long-term stability of tape and the additional option of USB output for digital backups on a computer. The unit offers excellent sonic performance due to a wide frequency range.

Both decks in the 202MKVII can record, so you can actually make two masters of the same source at the same time. RTZ function and a repeat playback feature are provided, and you can increase or lower the pitch and tempo while playing back for Karaoke or sports applications. A microphone input on the front panel makes spontaneous recording (solo or mixed with a line level source or a cassette) convenient. There is also a pre-listening function that helps you preparing the next song on one deck while the other deck is playing. And of course, you can use the two decks for cassette dubbing at normal speed.
