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.
