Dolby B NR DBX Metal Tape 3 Head

The Marantz CP-430 is a stereo cassette deck with double Dolby B and DBX noise reduction, it was introduced by Marantz in 1985.

The main features of the Marantz CP-430 are: 3 heads and off-tape monitoring, analog 3 digit tape counter and memory stop, manual tape type selection with support for normal, chrome and metal tapes, belt driven single-capstan transport.

Typical of this deck is the 70's top loading layout 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 CP-430 are analog needle VU reading meters. Mechanical transport controls for reliable CP-430 transport function selection. Playback speed may be adjusted with pitch control. Cue and review can be used to easily and quickly locate the beginning of a passage.

The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the CP-430 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. The three-head configuration of the CP-430 requires a Double Dolby system, one for recording and one for playback. Dbx Type II found in the CP-430 is a simplified version of the Type I noise reduction system. The dbx Type II system was designed to be used with systems with limited bandwidth such as cassette based recorders and also uses a simple 2:1:2 compander to reduce noise. To further maintain recording accuracy, the CP-430 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the CP-430 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.
