Dolby B NR Soft Touch Metal Tape 3 Head

The Fisher CR-150 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B noise reduction, it was introduced by Fisher in 1982 and discontinued a year later.

The main features of the Fisher CR-150 are: 3 heads and off-tape monitoring, analog 3 digit tape counter, manual tape type selection with support for normal, chrome and metal tapes, belt driven single-capstan transport.

Typical front loading cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on the left side of the deck. Tape eject is operated mechanically and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well.

Level meters used on the CR-150 are analog needle VU reading meters with peak indicator for easy adjustment of optimum recording level. Soft-touch controls for fast and easy transport function selection of the CR-150.

The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the CR-150 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. To further maintain recording accuracy, the CR-150 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the CR-150 can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

To make live recordings this deck has 2 microphone inputs to connect microphones with a jack connector. For undisturbed listening a jack connector for a pair of stereo headphones is supplied. Connection to other audio components for plaback can be achieved by a RCA cable and recording from a source by a RCA cable.
