Grundig SCF 6200
HighCom Soft Touch Metal Tape

The Grundig SCF 6200 is a stereo cassette deck with High-Com noise reduction, it was introduced by Grundig in 1982 and discontinued a year later.

The main features of the Grundig SCF 6200 are: 2 heads, analog 3 digit tape counter, 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 loading/unloading is operated motorized and the cassette needs to be placed horizontally in the drawer.

Level meters used on the SCF 6200 are generic digital peak reading meters. Soft-touch controls for fast and easy transport function selection of the SCF 6200.

The High Com system (as used in the SCF 6200) works as a broadband 2:1:2 compander, achieving almost 15 dB of noise reduction for low and up to 20 dB for higher frequencies, while avoiding most of the acoustic problems observed with other high compression broadband companders. To further maintain recording accuracy, the SCF 6200 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the SCF 6200 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 a single microphone input to connect a microphone with a DIN connector. Connection to other audio components for plaback can be achieved by a cable and recording from a source by a cable.
