The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the 1000II by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. Unlike the various Dolby systems, which require encoding and decoding, the Dynamic noise limiter (DNL) used by Nakamichi in the 1000II works on playback only and reduces noise by as much as 10 dB. To further maintain recording accuracy, the 1000II incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the 1000II 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 3 microphone inputs (for left, right and center channels) to connect a microphone with a DIN 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. All main transport commands can be issued remotely with a wired remote control.
